Prepro helmet v.2 project

    Re: Prepro helmet v.2 project

    Allright, this bucket is going to a photoshoot on Thursday now
    I'll post finished photos on Friday evening. I weathered the ears a couple of days ago. I airbrushed layers of black, mustard yellow and brown and used steelwool to remove it in places. The whole helmet now also has got a nice semi-gloss look after clearcoating the entire thing.
    I have until Thursday to complete the stalk and RF.

    I finished it yesterday. I uploaded a little preview.
    Did'nt have time to use BM's RF, so i settled for my old MLC. The BM was not hollow and it didn't fit the Stalk i got from Lee. Anyway i managed to thin out the stalk, weather it, padd the interior and Paint the RF. Today a friend is coming over and we will Photograph it properly Stay tuned!

    Re: Prepro helmet v.2 project

    Thanks, guys I'm so happy that you liked it. It was pure pleasure working on it. It really would not have taken so long if i had the time to work on it more often. This probably would have been finished within a couple of weeks, LOL.

    Some more photos:

    Re: Prepro helmet v.2 project

    Micke,
    How did you accomplish the revealed silver along the sharp edges,like on the mandibles? Masking off like the rest of the silver showing or just scratching it off?

    Re: Prepro helmet v.2 project

    I believe it was a combination of scraping the edges with a razor-blade and masking. All the finer scratches(especially on the dome) was done with a needle.
