Well i finally got the pictures developed. I took alot of pictures in different light setting to give you guys a good idea how the colors can really vary. Everything on the bucket is done now minus the ears.
All the colors where done w/ the ones Lee listed, i painted
it in layers (1 white primer, 3 layers chrome spray paint, 3
layers Panzer Olive Green) All the silver scratches where
done w/ a paint silver pen made by *pentel* its kinda of
expensive 6 bucks, but well worth it. Sorry for the crudeness
of the pictures, i took them w/ my buddies digital camer
which wasnt very good. Im almost done w/ the dome, i started
the kill stripes last night and i should be completely done
w/ the dome this afternoon and hopefully get some good
pictures up of all the detail. Once again sorry for bad
I still have a small amount of weathering to do around and above ths stripes but the jist of its done. When the rest of my paints arrive ill finish the base coats on everything else.
Well ive got the "bulk" of the painting done, minus the ears, back of the helmet which i just started today, and the RF. The Mandibles color i had to mix a bit, i used the BoxCar Red that RS stated but it seemed waayyyy to brown, even in the different light it didnt look right. So i took a few dropps of just regular old testers red paint and mixed that in an air-brushed it on. For the back of the helmet, i also didnt care for the Euro 1 Dark green out of the can. The color seem way to close to the same color as the cheeks and dome, so i added some testors blue to it and mixed to the desired color and air brushed on. Unfortuantly these pics where taken w/ a really really bright flash so the colors are realllly distorted. Also for the left ear piece i didnt care for the out of bottle color that was recommended (RLM dark green) I was planning on just mixing a color to get the desired green but i found a random bottle of testors green sitting around that looks pretty close. I sprayed it on and it was perfect, . Ill try and get some better pics that show the "TRUE" colors of the helmet.Ive been working on this for about 2 weeks on and off, but probable for a grand total of 4 or 5 solid days. Once im finshed w/ the back and my visor arrives ill get some quality pics up......BTW i havnt fixed the kill stripes yet, their still to wide.
