Very well done.

I do like that you tell about the 3d on the little one.

I think that all of the cnc & 3D printed things should be identified as such when posted.

Nice carving. The finishing is new to me. Is the Nickel a paint ?

I first have to prime the model with primer, then the powder metal is mixed with a thin resin which is sprayed with a paint gun with an oversized tip. After it has set, I sand off the resin with steel wool and a thin wire hand brush. Some of my previous post I go through the procedures and where to get the material.
