I've painted the first corner piece. It took a whole week to paint a quarter of it's exterior shell. This is soul destroying... I can't spend another 3 weeks painting this model. However, I am really happy with how it's turned out. More pictures after the jump. 

I've pain-stakingly hand painted every blended line on this model so far with many more left to do. Is it worth it, I'm not so sure. 

I'm going to carry on and try not to touch any other models until this one is finished. I'd really appreciate some feedback, support or critique in the comments. Hell, just say hi to let me know you're following this project and it's all worth while would be amazing.
