    Jul 7, 2008, 5:52 AM - My Bobamaker progress #1

    Ok, this is the sixth helmet I'm trying to paint. (Number four and five can be looked at
    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...+post+practice ) Here's my progress so far. I used the paints as listed in Rogue Studios List. For the shading I always used the same paint and added a few drops of black dull color. Exept for the kill stripes; here I used a few red coughs on the last right stripes.
    Now I would like to ask the master painters a question: What is the best method to apply the battle damaged paint job in the most accurate way? Until now I did the tracing always "free hand/free eye style". Is there a better way? Any other suggestions or valuable tips are appreciated.

    i think your eye is quite good as it is. but if memory serves, there was a thread a while back by pghfett, about using some sort of decal as a template. i don't entirely remember. but i'll see if i can find the link.

    *edit*

    i found the link: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=17386

    but i don't think it will be very useful, since pghfett went and edited all his posts in that thread. and i don't think there was another thread like it since.

    Judging by your previous paint ups i'd say to carry on applying the detail by eye, you've done some really great work on those helmets! This one looks like it's going to be even better...

    Hi,
    This is a really nice start, good job . For my first and only scratchbuilt helmet I did the battle paint job by tracing "free hand/free eye style" too, using Count Dookie's templates. You can see the result here : http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=26420
    Keep up the great work !!!

    Not the bucket I won't, I haven't ordered one yet. I do have a Don Post or Rubies (I dunno which) which I may practice on first like Wolfi did. Which look great by the way.

    Looking great. You are correct, the reefer gray usually needs to be darkened a little for the back and dome.

    Ok, I will then darken the grey down a bit.

    The mandibles are done. Does anyone have a good stencil of the dent? Like the wonderful CountDookie stencils.
