    Man, that sure is pretty. Outstanding job!

    Did you go layered, topical, or both?
  2. Sep 10, 2007, 9:46 AM - Re: finished my helmet; at last! #27

    Thanks, it's entirely layered, and all airbrushed. The only brushed on areas were additional scuffs and some of the key splatter spots. Also the symbols were painted using a 00 brush...

    Holy smokes, that is beautiful I kow that layering can be harder to get the detail just right, than topical. You nailed it though. Well done

    I don't think your bucket is actually that good, if you send it to me i'll make sure it is disposed off for you

    seriously though, that is outstanding work. One of the best ESB buckets i have ever seen

    fancy painting one of mine

    Yeah i noticed the gray is a bit more noticable on yours than mine. I'm kind of tempted to carefully repaint them the darker gray

    I went to Wal Mart and was able to pick up some of this weather-stripping foam. I cut out a bunch of pieces and used industrial velcro to attach them to the inside. Works great!

    If I remember correctly, Garret told me it was a non cold cast one but painted in the layered technique
  25. Sep 16, 2007, 7:50 AM - Re: finished my helmet; at last! #50

    Yeah, i made a couple of non cold cast helmets, this being one of them. The helmet was sprayed with silver enamel then all layered on top, you can still pick the paint off to the silver layer which gives some realistic damage, before sealing with satin coat...
