    That aught to look pretty nice! The color pattern of pink and gray/charcoal mix well.

    I wanted a shot in the sunlight to better show the true colors
    so I took this shot

    immediately after I took that pic, TRAGEDY STRUCK!
    The wind blew the box over & Michelle's helmet fell 3 feet or so to the ground
    here's the damage; ( I am not pleased)

    Maybe you could work it into the battle damage of the bucket! Just add some hair line fractures to the visor in that area when you attach it. It would definately add a small but uniqe detail!... Looking good so far...

    I already sanded the area & am adding Evercoat to fix it back to how it was.
    Fortunately, I didn't do the Pink yet.

    Yeah, thats not that big of a deal...and definitely fixable. Atleast it happened while you could fix it and not somewhere that you couldn't.

    Ok
    Taped off for the Hot Pink
    also applied the liquid mask for some scratches
    Sprayed the pink
    The last pic is outside so you can see the true colors (no accidents this time )

    Looks really good...the only thing I might do is kinda roughen up the scratch edges...it looks like you threw paint drops in some spots. If you sanded them that way, try sanding them a little more to make the edges more jagged. Or maybe I'm just being anal. lol


    Either way, you did a fantastic job, and the color scheme works great.

    Looks shiny.

    Looks great as usual. The speed at which you paint your projects is always impressive.

    You may already intend to add details, but it would be cool to see a lot more little scratches. I was looking at the paint job over in this thread:

    http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=20343

    lotsa little details there, like the middle part on that rocket pack you just painted. Also, this may sound cool or not (pink mando helmets venture deeply into the realm of subjective opinion), but maybe if it had a... red visor, or some colored visor? like this:

    You are exactly right.
    i had some issues with the grey not scratching easily.So the scratches just look like the liquid mask
    I'm gonna see what I can do with the grey
    Maybe outline the scratches topically with some darker grey

    The pink was much better & turned out fine

    Michelle likes the red Visor
    it might make it to the final
