    well, heres another update i do not like the way the silver turned out on the mandibles so it will be redone using the topical method. im still looking for the reefer gray and prr maroon. Anyone know what color to use for the killstripes i cant find mech harvester yellow or the schoolbus yellow rattlecan. i need to know what other yellow i can use.

    I tink it looks fine. HOWEVER, the camera flash can be making it look different than it really is.

    Re: Painting my Bucket

    well i worked a little more on the helmet. i still need to get prr maroon and a good clear coat or dull cote. I need to weather it and add the killstripes. I also need to finish making the left ear and painting the back. finished the Right ear, tell me what you guys think.

    well here it is. the ears are held on by that blue tacky poster stuff just for the pics.

    for the "schoolbus yellow", you could try rustoleum's line striping yellow. it's a spray can that's upside down... the sprayer is at the bottom of the can and sprays straight down, not at a 90 degree angle. it's the closest to that sort of color i've found...



    using it is a bit odd, since it's inverted. you can pop the spray tip off of another can so that you at least get an upside down 90 degree angle.
