I'm not worthy!.. TF this is one of the best helmets tutorials ever!
I am so proud to own a TF Helmet. My most prized possesion!
ditto - sticky is a must.
Just amazing absolutely amazing, I love how this is coming along and it should be a sticky for sure.
I think I have your liquid masking technique down, but I just want to clarify. You spray color 1, then mask out what you want to keep for color 1, spray color 2, remove the original mask, and then mask color 1 and 2 together? Do you remove the original mask on color 1 so you can gauge the masking of color 2 more accurately??
Thats pretty much the technique, although some of the masking is left on in certain areas ie the base grey around the dent which is removed after the powder burn is added after the grey and green layers...
Thanks for the info. Also, do you usually thin 2 parts paint to one part thinner? How much paint does it ususally take you to do one full bucket? As in number of 14mL tins for the most used paint??
Can't wait to see more.

It's just amazing.
Great work Mr Fettler.

Nice! Your #73 looks more red on the pics than the one I used some time ago! It looks perfect
Other question: Will you sell the helmet afterwards? And what do you want for it?
