    One word comes to mind, and it happens to be one of the Seven Deadly Sins....ENVY! If I was Catholic, I'd have to go to confession! Good thing I'm not...

    Sweet work Garrett!

    Hey TF thanks for sharing your techniques with us all and the return pm's with all the tips.
    After a thread like this everyone should be able to kick out a decent helmet paint up.
    Thanks for sharing man, this is top notch.

    To be honest it seemed a shame to list out the process ( as i do with all the helmets i paint to remind myself ) and not share it, i only hope it helps anyone painting a helmet...

    23. a very light buff on the back panels with 0000 wire wool. The aim here is to thin the green layer slightly, don't over do it, it needs to be very subtle!
    24. mask entire helmet except R/H ear pieces. Spray R/H ear pieces silver no. 11
    25. masking tape R/H ear sections to remain silver including inside where the stalk locates. Mount ear pieces onto helmet.

    26. liquid mask silver damage, airbrush grey no. 79.
    27. remove liquid mask, liquid mask silver and grey damage, airbrush sand no. 93.
    28. draw on in pencil black arch and white half arch on outer cap, trace the white arch onto a piece of masking tape, cut the white arch out with sharp knife.
    29. liquid mask black arch, airbrush white no. 34.
    30. apply masking tape half arch, airbrush satin black no. 85.
    31. using thin strips of masking tape, mask the nine stripes below black arch, brush on satin black no. 85.

    tip: keep silver liquid masking to an absolute minimum, detail can be scratched through the following layers with a compass point...

    Garret, just to know, after every layer that you apply, do you do something on it? I say that because, maybe, if you mask the painted area it will peel off...

    I don't know, so please tell me, tell me

    The Humbrol enamel paints seem quite tuff ( they adhere to previous coats 100% ) so liquid mask or tape will not lift the paint between layers...
