As part of the replica unit at university, I created a replica from an enlarged button. I used electronic and normal callipers to take accurate measurements and drew the pattern onto styrofoam, carved out using riflers and coated the more detail pattern in miliput and the larger areas in a pva and polyfilla mix. 
I focused on layering metallic paint, yellows and browns to replicate the aged effect on the button and coated with a gloss glaze to help create the illusion of shiny metal.
