Being the modest person that I am, Angus, that is not for me to decide!

The gold paint ended up a mixture of gold leaf and brass colour- brass being quite a bit darker but not as dark as bronze; I used Humbrol enamel, mixing gold and brass in equal amounts to get the shade right.

I do intend to present the owners with a file of photographs of the rebuild together with some sort of background story. Let’s finish the hard work first, though, then I can get on with the fine details. And no, it wasn’t gold leaf!
