    ESB Helmet Commission for Abailey1

    Board member Abailey1 has commissioned me to paint his Asok CC FP helmet in an ESB paint scheme. Base colors have been applied. Next step: the kill stripes.

    Cool! The helmet looks so weirdly clean at this stage.

    Whose decal paper are you using? I have a bunch of the Testors stuff but I find that it curls up and sticks to itself whenever I use it.

    The rf looks awesome. Would look even better with a light kit in it lol. Anywho so far it looks great. I wish I had any kind of painting talent.

    The decals make the big scrape across the top of the dome look like a jumping horse.
    That's what I'm going to call that scrape from now on.

    Necronaut- I get my decal paper off of eBay from Robin's Eggcetera. The back of the paper just says 'inkjet/clear decal paper'.

    I am looking to put a light kit in the RF and a servo for the stalk. Any ideas?

    I make a light kit for the Asok topper. I will be doing another run soon. There is a sales thread in the cargo hold.

    Spent the last hour and a half painting the silver on the cat scratch. I am now officially bleary eyed!

    Helmet looks great so far! Once the decals are on, is it easy to remove them?

    He doesn't remove them. They're not masks, they're patterns. He puts them on and then paints over them, then clear coats.

    Actually that is exactly why I asked. . I want to make stencils/masks with the decals and not keep them on the finished bucket. .. my brush skills are not the best

    You could do that by just cutting them out and leaving them on the backing paper. It's rigid and would be excellent for tracing.
