    Sep 26, 2003, 3:59 AM - My Mystery Helmet & F'glass DP95 dlx- comp.-Lotsa pics #1

    I got my Mystery Helmet last weekend, and it is AWESOME!! I can't believe the quality and accuracy. Plus, I can pull it straight on my huge noggin! WITH FANS!

    I got it last Friday, and finished painting and weathering it by Sunday night, because I'm impatient. Plus, paint weathers more easily when it's still tacky. Tape pulls it off nicely, plus scratches are easier.

    Some of you may remember my DP95 recast- I added a half inch to the height, and almost 1/2 to the width. It's the same width as the MH, about 1/4" taller, and 1/4" shorter in depth. Weird.

    I repainted my fiberglass DP after it was done ESB, but the MH is all me. And I think it turned out better. It came out darker, which is what I intended. And I'm very happy with the results.

    Some weathering tips: Scrape chunks of the dome green off while they are all still unset. That's how I got the "Sage" to show through in spots. Also, use masking tape, wrapped around your hand, to pull off paint- especially where the wax or other undermask is.

    The MH is the one WITHOUT the RF, btw. I took these pics just before I put my RF on it.

    And before I added the red, and weathering. The "light spots" in the green (and on the silver), are the result of the wax candle I rubbed over the silver initially. I just scratched the light spots after painting it, and it works great. The dome and cheeks are dark, because I hadn't sanded through to the lighter shade.




    Silver Alcad (sp?) base coat. The colors I used were:

    Dome/Cheeks:
    Rust-Oleum Satin 7720 Sage
    Krylon Satin Touch 3522 Italian Olive
    Flat Black (here and there everywhere)

    Back:
    Color Spray Navy Satin 10-3068-1
    Krylon Satin Touch 3502 Hunter Green Satin

    Red:
    Color Place 20011 Red Oxide Primer
    Krylon Satin Touch 3503 Red Burgundy Satin

    ALL of them are from Wal Mart. I'm lazy, dammit!!
