Nice pics bud! I tried the 'scratch off' method with a toothpick, and it kept going down to the gelcoat, even after much sanding, priming, chrome, and drying. I've started using liquid mask on most parts now, and I cant wait to see how it turns out for you on the helmet.

Hey Spidey, We met at the Wal-Mart during the 48 hours of SW. I have the same bucket and was about to offer it back up for sale but yours does not look as "tall" as mine does. How did you correct the shape on top? I have not touched mine yet.

I made 15 in total. 3 for me, 2 for friends and 10 for sale. I've sold all that I've made now. I do believe I remembered to number all the helmet on the inside?! Is yours not numbered? By the way I have someone wanting a MS2 so if you don't want your helmet anymore I have a potential customer that would like it.

Now that we know what we are using to paint with......the Painting.
MASKING with a LOW TACK Tape will allow you to tape right over the masking fliud areas...If it lifts off when it's time to remove then you can always reapply....I LOVE this stuff.
I Mask and paint the DOME and under Cheeks first...as every one seems to do.
I like to use NEWS PRINT to help mask...It bends really easy.
I use Panzer Olive Green right out of the Bottle for the 1st Coat...a little Acrylic thinner if it's too thick.
I apply only 2 to 3 SOLID coats ..Waiting at least 20-30 minutes between coats.
The Panzer Green Color tends to dry DARK.....This is a Good thing because we will then spray a "MIST" of Panzer Green and Ital. C GR MIX. This gives it that "light look" in some areas per the Reference Photos..
The MIST of this mix should not be thick, and Spraying should be a good distance away and low pressure on your Air Brush..a well lighted room will enable you to see the application.
CHECK IT OUT!!

Well I've been checking these forums out for quite awhile now and figured I should just register allready.. but anyway..
You couldn't have started this thread at a better time for me, since I'm getting ready to paint my Bobamaker Helm.. Looking forward to the updates.. This should help out alot..
Lookin nice so far.. Although I did kinda like that Chrome look.

the lifting happened around the WHOLE crown of my blasted helmet, so don't feel alone. I painted by hand a thin layer first. I waited until that dried then came at it again, for about four layers (waiting in between to dry). After the washes, you don't even know its there and that's even with my OWN eye !
