    Keeping you all updated! Here's the Tuscan finished and tape taken off. I think it looks amazing!!!!




    The color looks o.k. here, but in person it looks alot browner and more screen accurate, I recommend it!

    I also bought this baby that I believe Micke used on his for the scatches:

    Looks great, Bobo. I only hope mine looks half as good when I get it done. Although, I will have to use the same green that I used on my armor (spruce green).

    Helmet is looking great, post pictures of it after adding scratches with the pen to get some feedback from your experience with it.

    Thanks guys! i can't wait to paint the back and the ears, and then the scratches.

    I'm just worried that this silver pen won't stick to the paint I really hope it does.

    I'll definitely keep pics comin so don't worry, but I also have to devote some time to my RF LED project

    Hi, Bobo. Test the pen first on a little area and check if it will stick. Wait about 1 day. My silver stays on great, but it takes a while to entirely dry(1 hour).
    What's great is that i can paint on top of it later and the colours dont stick to the silver, so it kinda works like a masking technique
    After all the paint has dried. Clearcoat the whole thing(dull not shiny).

    You helmet looks great so far!
    Good luck!

    Very nice, Bobo! Couple of questions:

    - I was curious about the type of sponge brush that you have been using also. Got any pics of it?

    - Will you paint your armor the same Panzer Olive Grun 1943? Or is the ESB armor supposed to be a different color from the helmet?

    Keep up the progress pics!

    Thanks sharky

    Well, the sponge brushes are just regular, ugly, cheap wal-mart blash sponges (wedge shaped) on a stick!

    I realized that they work fine for the Acrylic colors, but you should really use a decent paintbrush for the enamels and the Floquils. Because I tried painting the Tuscan (Floquil) with a sponge...but it looks horrible and globbed on .

    And I believe the armor is supposed to be a different color. I dont know what it is yet, but someone else should know?

    I just hope the silver pen looks good

    Ciao,
    Bobo
