    Hello everyone!

    Small update.
    I finished the helmet, a little spoiled silicone molds, so didn't do the photo, there is nothing new or unusual.

    Here is the result of simple colored paint mtn 94 and mtn hardcore, made weathering simple acrylic paint and a sponge.

    Where to read and learn to make a helmet out of fiberglass?
