    Why didn't you just paint over the gold face?

    So you painstakingly scrape the paint off instead of taking 30 seconds to swipe a paint brush over it? :p 

    Use acrylic model paint. Tamiya or Testors Model Masters are good brands. Personally, I've only used Tamiya of those two, and it's quite durable once it's had a day to fully cure (I can't scratch it off with a fingernail, for instance. Still not strong enough to hold up to joint wear, though. Not much is).

    Well, I'm sure the scuff marks from the screw driver give him a great grizzled [its with great restraint that I didn't say chiseled] look.
