    The helmet looks already weathered and smooth. Good job so far!

    Thanks Rafal

    One more treat for you guys before I leave this project at my apartment for the weekend. Cut out the visor today and got a few layers of primer and silver done. It's not perfect but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

    The paint job looks good! Your custom scratches are awesome, but in some places these resembles with the ESB stencils (not that this is a bad thing). Just keep the good work coming!

    this is turning out to be quite the bucket. The shape looks fantastic and you got it to look so smooth. You should be proud!

    Keep it up!

    Thanks guys, I am quite proud of how this is turning out. Rafal, you have a hand in this part of my build too. I'm loosely using your PP1 stencils to map things out like Bokklast did for his Dala helmet, I like how that one turned out. Any resemblance to the ESB paint is just subliminal on my part cause I'm an ESB guy.

    Here's the fixed paint for the cheeks and lid (Thanks to Kibiri Foxx for the color correction ). Also got the upper cheeks done. Just the mandibles, keyslots and killstripes left! The back panels still look a little garish but they'll be dulled down with a brushing of wire wool and a layer of dullcote.

    Here's the yellow paint. It's "striping yellow" from Rustoleum. I planned to mist it more with orange but my full can stopped propelling after two spritzes so that didn't happen. The florescent lights make it look a lot more yellow than it is and the brown/ blackwash should darken it up considerably too.





    And with natural light...



    With the blueness of the back panels and the more intense yellow it's actually a bit more of a cross between the TEOD and the Decipher version.

    Thanks!

    Here's the weathering revealed and a try-on for sizing. The padding is a little much in the top so it's riding a little high, plus it looks a bit slim without earcaps. Just have the ears and killstripes to finish tonight and tomorrow morning.

    I love it! As you said, the yellow is too yellow, but maybe because we are too familiar with the BF colors. Keep up the excellent work!

    Here's some shots with the final weathering in natural light. You can see the brown really darkened the mandibles up to orange nicely.









    And one at 4am the day before I trooped in it with the visor and ears/rf installed



    And the final bucket with everything put together

















    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks you guys! And if you want to build it, give it a try! It's not nearly as hard as it seems and this is my second go-around. I have a half-finished bucket sitting at my parents house that I never finished up but I learned a lot building it.

    That helmet is so sick! I really like all your color choices and each of the scratches you did. Excellent paint job on a nicely crafted helmet.
