    Jul 21, 2014, 12:12 PM - VillainWorks MSH2 ESB Restoration....... #1

    I decided it was time to give my old trooping helmet, a MSH2, a much needed restoration........ fix some physical things with the helmet and update the paint job, and do it at the same time I do the one for Aikaos.....

    So, after disassembly, it looked like this.....



    As I got down to the surface, I noticed several cracks and holes...





    And I also am taking the opportunity to add the physical damage to the helmet, and also in the correct spots.....









    I also took the opportunity to clean up the keyslots and square off the sides of the visor holes....

    Cool! Don't see a lot of MSH2s around these days. Good luck with the resto.

    Not as many photos taken on this one, as I'm focusing on the one for Aikaos......

    Just need to lay down the blue/green mixture, then peel and start on the dome.....

    It's been a long time since I've updated this........ I put it on the back burner to finish up commissions......

    This is where I'm currently at....... Silver has been laid down on the mandibles......
