    That one seems to have done the trick, machining time ~5hrs instead of 20, will cut one asap

    Thanks for your patience and persiverance

    Have cut a half size one, for machining time reasons, and it looks very good. Full size one will be better for the smaller detail, I used a 1.5mm ball nose which was a bit big for the fine detail.

    Used plenty of laquer to glue the print to the wood, gives it lot of sparkle in the sunlight

    Glad to help. I expected it to be sprayed gold, but shiny wet-look black is more in keeping with the original.
