started work on the lid today.
Dent filled, some base colors airbrushed on
decided i wanted to go with a bit more reddish/orange cast to the helmet paint....as opposed to matching the armor.
something like this
so i thought i would try a pearl paint.
silver basecoat applied to trim
first coat of orange pearl
Im undecided yet as to weather i like how its coming out.
once i get more coats on and let it dry ill see better.
few more coats of orange, i LOVE the pearl effect.
gives it a real metallic look.
and the color is really starting to look nice.
