Just have to more rocks to add to hide the spray bars and do some detail painting and I am done! All is left then paint the trim, redo the stand, clean out the tank and order my glass!

Don't lie, you trashed the foam and picked out some rocks. Looking good.

One of my buddies taught me how to layer paint to achieve the desired look. It was nerve racking painting it after all that work because i didn't want to mess anything up. I have 2-3 more detail layers to add.
