    May 4, 2011, 2:32 AM - MMGRAPHICS PAINTJOB TF HELMET IN ESB STYLE #1

    A new paintjob thread from me to show the process of painting the TF Helmet in ESB style for my dear friend Florian aka BH-2647.

    BTW: There is another new paintjob thread of me on here for CaptainSoloīs FP Premium. Painting this one ESB style too. So there will be two threads to keep updated!

    Lets start here:

    This layer of dark grey needs some rubbing with wirewhool to clean up the paint chips. Next will be the lighter grey on the mandibles and trim. ;-)

    Itīs always a pleasure to see the complete scratched mandibles in addition to the dark grey before.

    Photos taken with flash. The **** flash misleads the colors. But you get the idea.

    STEP5: Purple on the mandibles

    The first of two layers for the mandibles: purple. Only little fragments of it will be seen when the final red is on.

    STEP6: Red on the mandibles / Green on the backpanels

    The red is sprayed on and the green is on the backpanels now. The flash lets look the dark grey in some strange way, I will take another shot tomorrow in daylight.
    Just the dome and lower cheeks in green and the upper cheeks in black and the basic colors are ready.





    More tomorrow!

    Best,
    Manuel

    Hey TxFett,
    your bet will win !
    Actually I donīt have the time doing the paintjob and Manuel has done outstanding work in the past, so he was my first choice.
    I still remember our time at Celebration IV 2007, was really nice to meet so much TDH-members.
    Stay tuned,
    best wishes from Germany
    Florian
