I'm not really a fan of spash annos - they work well on ugly guns since they hide the milling well, but that's exactly the problem - they obscure the milling. I wouldn't do that to an LV1 It could perhaps work on say the body, with black parts. Or something.
Amazing renders! Agree with the splash. I'm thinking I might do my new gsl in the rawhide or uber. Any thoughts on the new gsl? Milling is gorgeous.
