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!!

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
