ID:	70007This is my first time painting a helmet.What are your opinions on it. I'm planning on doing a second one in the future.There's just a few things I'm not satisfied with the main one is that the gray i feel isn't dark enough.

    I think it looks great, especially for a first time. If I tried to paint one, I would most likely look like my 3 year old did it with finger paints and a rock.

    I used the same methods as welsh warriors you tube videos ,thanks for posting them they were a lot of help.As far as paints,it's part spray paint and part poly scale paints,at the time I didn't realize the closest hobby shop carried the poly scale paints.Thanks guys for all the positive feedback so far.
