Kill stripes and one of the back panels
and i have yet to do all the proper weathering
the weathering one the left hand ear platform went a little wrong but i think i'll live with it
The back panel looks spot on, have you been leveling the paint as you go with wire wool?
Go easy though Jon! I don't want you to rub off all the detail and blame me! LOL
I used a 0000 grade wool which works just right, i think you'll find the texture (especially on the red) will smooth off and the colours deepen slightly. The red on my mandibles lost its pink hue when i did this, and you can even buff to a slight sheen with a soft cloth if you need to...
Almost done. I still have to add the emblems and a bit more weathering. I also semi fitted the visor just for the pics
Very nice Jon... you have outdone yourself on this! much much better than your first lid?
You should be very proud...
I forgot to put the bordon connector on
I take it all back! if your not gonna be professional about it?
Looking good Jon, with the additional weathering thats going to look real nice...
Some in natural light, the maroon loks better without the flash
totally finished (I think)
Looks Incredible Ronin677!!! Killer job!!!
Wow, great job!
A pleasure to watch this thread - Fantastic results!!!
Awsome job!.. you should be proud to troop in this one!..
Killer paintjob dude! Nice details too. Did you intentionally do the signs like that? Nice personal touch!
"With great power comes great responsibility"
No, not intentional, just a mistake. The symbols on the right ear are upside down (by the time i noticed it was too late). The white U symbol also is too long (it was a pre fab sticker that i had modified heavily already and could do nothing further with without ruining it)
cheers for all the kind words though guys
And TF, thanks for supplying me with, IMO, one of the best lids to paint up
Thatís a mighty fine looking helmet.
Itís nice to know that I can get paints that look so good in the UK (runs off to search for the above mentioned paint list).
Thanks for posting your progress, Iíve picked up some good tips.
Awesome!!!!!!!! I love seeing these bucket paint jobs!! Cant wait to get my bucket now!!!
