special froggy friday for me today 😊 this one has been a long time coming but finally finished it off the other night during a bout of debilitating hayfever but that wasnt going to stop me!
i now realise after seeing it enlarged there are a few details i need to clean up tho. the beat up original resin and repeated stripe/repaints didnt help at all and im sure the extended soaks in acetone hasnt done the resin any favours for longevity!
pretty happy with the result otherwise, got a colourway that doesnt exist in my collection so thats always a plus 😃

history:
started off life as a pretty beat up golden defender, plan was to recreate that awesome gold green chameleon colour...

...but instead it came out as just metallic green, the gold metallic i used got over powered
15934112


....tried a few combinations of layering but just couldnt get it right so on to the back burner it went

i always liked the fluro green of the 200f and was going to recreate that instead with the 225a module/case but thats a semi common mod, instead i broke it up with some detailed masking for a two tone look :D
finished off with double eagle motifs which can be seen as defeating the golden defender or like a phoenix rising from the ashes 🙄😅 may still try it on the 225a to dial back the tertiary colours tho 🤔
