    ESB helmet paintjob



    I've been doing a lot of learning on this paintjob; its the first one I really tried to use the right techniques and shapes.

    Helmet is a FPMR. Big thanks to RafalFett for his stencils!

    The borden and ear detail are photoshop stand-ins but not for much longer I hope.

    More pictures to come as I add additional details and weathering.

    Thanks!
    This thing is a real trick to photograph and I am not very good at it!

    Here are some more shots showing:
    the other side (with flash)
    a closeup showing some weathering (still more weathering to come!)
    and a three quarters showing the wavy brow I built in.

    That helmet looks dead on! You nailed all the colors and the scratches and I can't wait to see it finished!

    And by the way, thanks for the kind words (regarding my stencils)!

    Great job!! Adding the wavy brow is a brave move, but you nailed it.

    Thanks guys.
    I learned quite a lot through painting this. Next time I will try to correct a few problems. Practice is everything!
