    Feb 23, 2004, 5:51 AM - J kids ESB bucket, (finished) #1

    UPDATE 3-23 (finished)
    Well, I finally got this thing nearly complete!! Have to add a stalk & RF & a few minor rust spots, but for all intents & purposes, its finished. It isn't perfect, but I'm really jazzed about how it turned out, (never knew I had it in me!!!) I need to thank alot of people for helping me with this:

    Vashdampe: thanx for the decals, they are great!!!
    Secol fett: THanx for finding the borden connector and thanx for hosting my pics!!!
    Braks: THanx for hooking me up with a borden connector!
    Bobo: thanx for the lights
    TK409: THanx for the killstripe template bud!

    *Special thanx to RS for the discovery of the paints and painting techniques!!! I didn't use all the paints cause I couldn't find em all , but the ones I did get my hands on are awesome!!! Especially greatfull for the POG!!!

    *Very special thanx to FP for the MSH2!!! I wouldn't upgrade this baby unless someone made a pull directly from the original ESB bucket, & even then, I might have to think about it

    *Lastly, thanx to all who gave encouragement & comments & thanx to TDH. I picked up so many tips/tricks/&techniques that its impossible to thank you all personally, but I'm sincerely greatfull to TDH













    Thanx everybody!!!!
    Damian

    End update............................................ ............

    Hey everybody. I've been working on my MSH2 & thought I'd show some progress pics. It still has a loooong way to go, but I'm fairly happy w/ how its turning out so far. As usual, my pics really suck (gotta get a decent camera one of these days) Please LMK what you think, and be honest!!!! Thanx for looking,
    Damian

    Thanx for the comments guys!!! I added the kill stripes & a bit more weathering tonite. What do you think??? Personallly I think they look a bit too bright, but I haven't dull coated it yet, so maybe I'll get lucky & they'll be OK. Thanx again for the comments,
    Damian

    Thanx so much for the comments so far everyone!!! I really appreciate it!!(keeps me goin!!! ) heres some more crummy pics I'm not shure if I'm gonna redo the back or not. I think its pretty decent, but I think I could do better. Some areas seem really good, while others to be off by quite a bit. Man, I never realized what a friggin mess the back of the bucket is!!!! So much weathering, its hard to keep it all strait!!! I know it could be more accurate, but I think it gives the overall ESB feel. What do you guys think??? THanx for looking,

    Thanx again for all the comments & support guys, heres some more progress pics. I stuck the red on it today, (actually had to redo it twice now ) but I think I finally got it looking ok. I shoulda just waited & got the boxcar red as Lee suggests, but I won't have alot of time to work on this for a while, and impatience got the best of me, so I custom mixed the red...what a project!!! Heres a few diff. pics in diff. lighting. I still gotta scuff it & add a bunch more weathering, but I think its getting there. What ya think???
    thanx for looking,
    Damian

    The visor men, have you seen the visor?

    Finding the right material to make the visor is still the most difficult challenge. Here in Europe, we don't have the required dark green faceshield. We have to order it in the US, but most of dealers don't sell outside of the US.
