Forgot a pic
Off to a good start man...going topical or layered?
Layered, I don't have the balls or know how to do topical.
After hammering out some issues plaguing my personal life, I finally got a chance to get started on the helmet. Following suit with TFs new Malone Fett ESB helmet, I really liked the base color he was using so I tried to emulate that. Not sure how well it matches, but I think I did OK.
I haven't airbrushed anything in about 2 years so I was a little rusty, but after nailing down the paint to thinner ratio everything was smooth sailing and I'm feeling pretty good about what I've got down so far.
update: the blue/gray mix just ended up drying straight gray... lol

MM RLM 76 is what you need for the blue grey
It's looking nice.

Your doing a good job on this keep it up!
I bite off small sections at a time..........I can't imagine doing the layers on the whole helmet at once.
And yeah, I didn't think I was going to, but I figured I'd get it all out of the way in one go, then do all the individual sections later since the helmet had those the colors all over anyway.
That is really looking good CB....I need some templates printed out to start my FPH2. Really gets the bug lit up seeing these in process pics, and seeing that much damage done at once makes the lid look cooler overall lol.
Great job so far.
I messed around with the custom mix for the concrete color and think I got it better than before.
I used the mix above 103+28, then eye balled and added 72 and 127. Pics will come after painting.
What's the texture supposed to feel/look like on the helmet? I can't remember if it was slightly grainy at all on my last helmet; I'm looking for constructive criticism. I am thinning humbrol paints 1:1, paint to thinner. I'm not sure if I'm painting too far away, or if I'm just not putting enough coats on.
