Looks great! How did it get the different colors? Are those printed, or painted on?

I think he said they were painted on.

I painted it with Testors enamel model paint. I gave the entire model a black base coat and then used bronze and steel. The roughness of the white makes the for a nice rough metallic look.

That looks amazing. Great detail.

Joris, thanks for giving this deserved attention. I want to see more Steampunks on here! With the ability of 3D printing to create detail and moving mechanical parts, the pairing with Steampunk is perfectly natural. If anyone can get a handle on how to make DIY 3D designing a functional reality for everyday people, it's the makers and artisans in that band. Hopefully Bill makes plenty of noise.
