This is an ongoing project aimed at strengthening and improving the dexterity of my right hand after a stroke. I used 6mm MDF for the stock as I wanted to eliminate splintering and standard acrylic paint. So far it seems to be going well but I've been stuck for over week trying to figure out how to paint the highlights. This method of segmentation painting is ideally suited to me. By sorting out the different pieces into basic colour groups it becomes very easy to apply base coats.
This is a sort of time lapse record of my progress. I hope you find it interesting.

Wonderful job. Keep up the rehab and thanks for sharing the pics.
There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.”

I see the therapy is working. Nice job.
