Haven't done a new progress thread for a while, but I actually have something new I'm working on.
I recently received one of Skygunbro's McQuarrie concept version 2 buckets and it's a really
cool looking kit!
If anyone has seen his version 1 McQuarrie helmet, you know how nice that was. This one is based
on this well-known sketch.
The kit is fiberglass reinforced, with 3 insert pieces for details on the lower cheeks and left side, and has a
3 piece RF assembly. I'll put up some pics in my next post.
I've got everything trimmed and sanded, and I should have a couple of shots of the helmet in primer
by tomorrow evening. Not much to show at this point. This will (hopefully) be a pretty quick build,
as I'll be doing a pristine paint job. Gloss white, with a couple of touches of gray and a red triangle
on the front of the dome. . . and that's pretty much it! Imagine that. . . a simple paint job for a change.
More to come!
