I’ve made progress on the NMM, both the armor and the gold accents. I don’t know what you call that thing that hangs down the front with the gold plates on it, but I painted it blue.
Dracon scale formula:
base coat: mostly red w/ violet & blue
shade: navy blue & base color
highlight: orange & white, white
transition from highlight to midtone: pure red
There are a lot of layers involved there, with touches of this & that in places where it seemed to belong, but those are the basic colors involved.
