    Fantastic! I thought it was right on the money myself. I just don't think the dome and cheeks are any darker. Any thought on the cheek insets? I really am convinced they're black. I need someone to convince me otherwise.

    Here'a a pic of my GMH primed and 'silvered'. I've buff the silver out a bit with a lint free kitchen towel. The second shot is my DP96 with the moss green. I'm trying to shade it as best I can so the color comes through better. Warning: larger images.

    Thoughts?

    Well your doing ESB? Ummm heres where u went wrong...u didnt fill the chips and score marks for PP2....and didnt add the new ones for ESB. Check out my thread here http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/w...been-up-40149/ I filled the chips and scratches and made new ones and also painted it ESB with the moss green and flat black cheeks...bunch of other colors too

    I know.... I was planning PP2 and custom ESB sculpt. I'm torn now playing around with my DP. I know work is required if I do ESB...I was just looking for that thread last night! Thank you friend.

    If you do the ESB paint scheme, then don't forget to repair the dent too. I mean the area around the dent (this is specific to the PP2 only).

    As for the upper cheek black I think this image is enough:

    If the decal on the ear is flat black then the upper cheek black is for shure a more lighter color.

    The Brunswick Green is another one of those odd colors that at first just looks like black, but has some other tones going on.
    I've actually used it for black on other items. But I'd recommend it over flat black on the ESB cheeks.

    Just an FYI the decal is actually from a letra set press on and they are just black,
    though I lie grimmy black for the upper cheeks

    Black is black and textures won't make black a different color. Although it can make it appear different.

    Re: CSK225's GMH Progress Thread... this will be a long one :)

    Ok, I've decided to rattlecan it. I picked up most everything I need. For the back of the helmet I tried something a bit different (on my test piece). The back seems to have a definite blue note to it and, not being able to find the proper color, I did a base of rusto hunter green with an overspray of rusto midnight blue. Let me know what you think. They seem to blend very well into what I'm looking for. Donn't mind the heavy blue spot... I got impatient. I buffed it down a bit later (not shown) and it seemed to blend even better. I also picked up a different color for the muddy overspray because I couldn't find boot brown. I did, however, find rusto cinnamon and that seems real close. Opinions? I also put in a shade 3 visor today instead of the 5 I had. It seems much closer.

    Re: CSK225's GMH Progress Thread... this will be a long one :)

    I didn't see sage green anywhere, either. I almost bought that olive you were talking about a couple days ago and now I can't find it. I also have to get the bauhaus... that looks right on also. What did you use for the back and the stripes?

    the bauhaus gold is reefer yellow SAME color...all at walmart normally i found a close alternative this weekend to the gold which was marigold yellow in rusto...but its more yellow than the krylon...the olive u need for the ear or camp green is a new color its the new primer plus paint in one...the sage green ummmm? I dont know that I used sage spruce is for the armor...the moss green is what ur looking for though...at home depot and true value (ace harware maybe)

    Re: CSK225's GMH Progress Thread... this will be a long one :)

    Spruce, sorry. I mentioned it because you couldn't find it. I was just saying I didn't spot it anywhere either. Wasn't looking for myself. I've got my moss already, remember?

    I mentioned it in another thread but if you guys are having trouble finding any Rustoleum colors and have a Menard's nearby, go there!! They have just about every paint made by Rustoleum, including Zinsser primers. An entire isle of rattle cans at mine, not just one little section like Home Depot.

    I've got three huge Menards stores plus H.D., yet I have to go to Chi-Mart for Krylon. Menards here definitely has a better selection of rusto colors and primers. I didn't see any spruce green today though. Perhaps my area had a huge influx of jetpacks.

    CSK255 What did you use to secure the helmet liner to the inside of the helmet?
    Sorry, I didn't see your post there. The liner is held in with the original hardware that held it in the army helmet. It's a chicago screw setup, but I turned it around so I'd not be required to drill into the helmet. I used 5 minute epoxy to hold the posts in.

    Hey, F4R... are you sure that's bauhaus gold you used on the right earcaps? It seems awful yellow to me. Let me know, thanks!

    ummmm i used that for the kill stripes bud the ear cap is olive green parika and dark grey

    Re: CSK225's GMH Progress Thread... this will be a long one :)

    Yeah, I figured that out now. I thought the implication was that bauhaus was the 'gold' you used on the right ear... what did you use on that? Not the left ear. The antenna ear.

    Re: CSK225's GMH Progress Thread... this will be a long one :)

    Oh wait! Khaki! Nevermind! My mind ran away with the bauhaus being a 'gold'!!! I only sprayed a test piece, so no worries there.
