Hi everyone, its about time to start a new bucket. This one is a comission job for our newbie, Sancho. I will post my progress as I go and what I do for all to see. I will be using custom stencils that I have been working on for accuracy. I have a feeling this bucket will be twice what my last one was.
A couple of new things I will be doing on this one. I will be using the rare earth magnets on the earcap, this is the ultamate solution if you want to change out your RF stalk.
I will also be using a decal system for the RF Earcap rather then the hand painted one that I did for my last.
First off, I have it sanded and primed and finished up my silver coats last night. I am now ready to sketch on my stencils. This will be tedious but fun. I will be applying the grey, reds, and every major scrach with the stencil. The only one I can think of that cant be done that way is the feathered looking scratch that is at the back center of the helmet above the keyholes. That has to be done with a brush.
Well, enjoy and keep coming back and checking, there will be lots of updates!
