Looks great! Gauth is known to be a bit of a pain to paint (and keep standing) but I like what you've done here. The fleshy inside of the wings is a nice contrast.

I noticed the trouble getting him to stay standing! That's why for a base I used a blank CD, and glued down the tip of his tail to keep him at least mostly upright!

@deathly halliwell and @Rickdraco agreed with both of you.  I think this paint job looks fun, but i learned my lesson to on keeping this thing vertical.  I when glued his wings together as if extended above his head.  i havent figured out how to keep him up.  He ends up eating the ground.  I thought pinning his tail back would counterbalance him, but his legs give out.  I think it's a lost cause for me.  Just good practice, but will need to toss and not look back.  

 

I did the CD thing, too for holding him and it worked well. Until he ultimately folded over.  Wah wah.

I think I remember reading somewhere (this forum, very likely) that the best way to keep him upright is to pin his legs to the base. Might require a long-ish pin, and careful drilling. I'm going to attempt this when I assemble mine. YMMV.
