Default Vintage Pearl Kit with a Custom Finish

Here's a mid-70's Pearl drum kit that I did to resemble the iconic P-40 Warhawk. I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you think.

I think that's pretty cool. How about some detail on the process.

Oh that's wonderful. Is it a wrap finish?

Thank you for the kind feedback gentlemen. I did this kit in a decoupage style. I created a sheet metal pattern with rivets, hand cut them and glued them down in individual pieces to give the finish texture along the "riveted" seams. I then used a heavy duty acrylic sealer to protect the finish and give it a high gloss shine. I'm looking to sell it if you know of anyone that's interested. Thanks for checking it out.
