    Thanks Ben.

    Finished so far, at least with the carbon fiber, maybe I'll heat colorize the pivot/screws and etch+stonewash the single liner...

    I forgot to take a shot from side after finishing it, so this one must do it ;)

    How did you do that? Heat? Dye? A combination of both?

    I heated the standoffs with a blow torch & quenched them in used oil.
    I repeated this process again & again until the desired color was achieved.

    First attempt at scales ever. My BM 590 Boost. Brown micarta slightly charred. Initially I wanted to burn an image into it as well but it was too thick for me to groove it in before textuing, and afterwards too... textured.[​IMG]
