    Much of my time has been spent on a small exhibition that will open next Friday, but i'm thinking of working on it this weekend.
    It's pretty much just the RF stalk and ears that will need some work. A friend will photograph it when it's completed.

    For now just a little thing i put together in PS:



    The original is on the left and mine is on the right.
    Please note that i altered the colors and contrast + added some noise just to get it to match the photo. The RF and rest of the suit is the original. I just added the helmet. The differences are quite big. Just look at the dome and the earpiece. Also the scratches do not line up as good as i wanted:/
    BUT...overall i'm pretty satisfied

    I was finally able to do some more work on the helmet yesterday. I misted it gently with some grey primer + i installed the cirquitboard behind the keyholes in the rear. I also completed the earcap and painted it. Not so sure if i need a acrylic wash or not afterall.

    These are now the remaining things:

    -Make the RF-stalk thinner
    -Drill out the RF-top in order to fit the stalk
    -Glue the earcap on
    -Add padding inside the helmet.
    -Weather the ear-pieces.

    Shouldnt be too long now

    A new pic!

    You can probably make out the misting i added. It really helps everything come together. You can also see the 2 stubs in the rear that i added to the cirquitboard. Soon i will weather the ears + cap and thinning out the RF-stalk

    Theres not alot I can offer this thread as far as folks interested in persuing there own Prepro paint job other then this since the photos I have, I dont have permission to post them. However I pulled color swatches from them. These are from the helmet being shot indoors with really good even colorless light. In my opinion these are THE colors. But Micke did such a good job matching them allready I almost dont see the pont in posting them other then to back up his color selections.
