The process is the same, print out the shapes, glue them to the plywood and cut everything:

Now that all the pieces are ready, we can try to assemble the spine to test the size of everything:

Time to paint! First a black base and then a couple of hands of gold and a touch of brass color.

It looks kinda lame and yellow, but it will look just right after aging.

Now a bit of assembling:
