    My Helmet

    This is (hopefully) my finnished helmet!!!!! It was all hand painted as i have no spray painter and is all my own work. All the battle damage was done using artists masking fluid and i think its turned out really well!! (appart from the back which i dont like as much so thats my there is no photo of it!!) My favourite part is the dent!! i think thats my greatest accivement so far on this project, i think its looks well good!!!!
    Hope you enjoy it!!

    Another impressive helmet. Considering what you started with, even more impressive.

    Well done

    Calista, that is one of the nicest DP 97's I have EVER seen. Did you put the half circle hoop in it yet?

    The hoop would definitely fix the wavy bottom. Nice paint job.

    I used a Cross-stitch hoop from the local arts and crafts store. THe largest they had was a 7", but when I took it apart and flexed it open, it worked just fine.

    Nice paint job!

    You've painted yourself a good looking helmet there and the back looks great too from what was visible of it
