    Default Luft desk adler, restoration project

    Hey all, here's a little something that I've been working on here and there for the past few months. The desk statuette came to me in pretty rough shape; the lower arm of the swastika had broken off at some point and was very poorly repaired. After re-breaking it, and a lot of grinding, I resculpted the swastika with a two part epoxy putty. After some finish sanding, paint, and a hand made wooden base, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Any opinions would be most appreciated. Cheers!

    A pretty good job in the end! I've had good luck working with Liquid Weld, as it hardens into metal and can be ground down and sanded, but this compound you are using looks like it's done the job just fine. Well done!
