    On the detail painting, are you free-handing all that or using some type of stenciling process?

    wannab, sorry I didnt notice your question. I dont use stencils. I just look at the damage by eye and go over the area with a light pencil.


    Alright I have an update. I started working on the back mandibles. I have been really lazy. I cannot start on the back because I dont have the right color, but that will come this saturday.

    I added some carbon damage to the area around the dent, above it, and to the bottom of the cheeks. I love airbrushes, I highly recomend getting one.






    Thought it would be about time to wear it and take a picture



    edit- Wow, that background is creepy. Haha, just thought I would mention that this isnt my room. It is my grandmothers room and she likes cute baby pictures and such, so whatever she finds, she puts up haha.

    Alright I told you I had another update coming before I go to sleep.

    I got the left side 99% complete. The left ear was wiped down with thinner so I could redo it. I was never fully satisfied with it.


    The left side before



    And after...

    Looks great! What silver did you end up using. The Floquil Bright Silver has worked well for me so far.

    Thanks. I used the same testors silver, but I got a newer and higher quality brush than the last one I had so the paint went on smoother.

    Great Job on the paint up, thanks for the great WIP images. I need to get started on my Bobamaker and this is giving me the impetus to get my butt into gear.

    Alright I can proudly say that I am almost at the finish line with this helmet. It is 99% done, all I need to do is finish painting the white on the left ear and I am done.

    And yes, I did go a little overboard with the spattering...My mistake, lol

    Wonderful helmet!

    How did you accomplish the splattering effect? Is it a feature on the airbrush?

    Thanks.

    I used an old toothbrush. I dipped it in paint, got rid of the excess and just barely brushed against the bristles to get that effect.
