    Hey, that's looking great so far! Nice paintage.
    Is that the new Sarge v.2 bucket? Or did you tweak his v.1?

    I'm wondering as well, since I don't notice the bumps on the mandible or lower cheeks that were present on the V2. Were you also able to take care of those with careful sanding like I did?

    Very good work! Weathering is looking beautiful. I'll be using this as reference when I paint my lid up in the coming weeks. Question: Is that with spray cans, or airbrush?

    This is a sarge V2.. and yes i sanded the bumps of the lower mand. Yes it did take some work No its not that bad.. the bumps are big but if you take your time your fine.

    Im going airbrush on the helmet. My Jet Pack will be a mixture of Cans and Air.

    This is my first paint app.. and first time painting with model paint. I wouldnt use this as reference!.. hahaha.. but thanks for the compliments. I just wanted to make sure im on the right track.

    if you want refrence look at AOSW2 pics.. and check out Spidey fetts JB project he's the MAN!!!... I do have a question how is everyone getting HAIR line painting? what techinic are you using?

    Also any ideas on how to paint the ear decal?! (just wondering how your applying the masking tape) Im trying to do everything painted on.

    For my very fine scratches, I actually scratch down to the base resin with a compass point.
    For the "not quite very fine scratches," I use a #000 brush.

    Heres my finished bucked i think... I i dont like how my rust came out.. but if you pro have suggestions on the rust please PM ME!... This is my first bucket and pretty much first time experince painting so you can say ive learned alot. I would like to do a MS3 bucket or a FPH when i get the chance for a second helmet.
    Now on to the visor, servo, and leds! YUCK!
