    And here's my second go around. Not 100% accurate by any means, but it was still a lot of fun to do.

    I like your paintjob. Did you repaint your first bucket, or is that a new one?

    Looks awesome, if I may suggest it needs a shot of dull coat.

    Thanks for the compliments guys! After I looked at the pics, I remembered I forgot to attach the borden connector.

    Yeah... That was my first thought too. It could also use a light misting to tone the green down a tad... But... Its still a great lookin' bucket nonetheless. Good job.

    OK, here comes a silly question. What exactly is dull coat? I know what it does, but I looked around at a few places and I couldn't find anything labeled as dull coat, is that what it's called? The helmet does look shiny in the pics, it might have something to do with all the snow/glare.

    I believe dull cote is just a name that some hobby paint brands uses to describe a clear flat varnish. But if I'm wrong, someone please correct me.

    And I like the paintjob, by the way.

    Dull Cote is a matte finish made by Testors... You can get it in the model section at Michaels.

    Thanks for the help. I found some today, removed the visor and gave it a once over, and it looks much better.
