    I couldn't resist but to put some kill stripes on the helmet. This is probably one of those examples of a beautiful mistake. I masked with mustard (which is yellow and my helmet is white) DUH!? For some reason I didn't think it would stain, but it did. At first I was pissed but after looking at it for a minute I thought it was actually a really nice complement to the helmet.



    I will probably use the mustard to continue staining a faint yellow when i do more stripes throughout the body armor. What do you all think???? But beware anyone who doesn't want the yellow haha. mustard stains!

    p.s. the camera doesn't do the colors justice. the yellow stain is actually a lot nicer in person. really nice light yellow. i think the flash washed out a lot of it.

    I like your color choices.
    Do you plan to use a "metal" colors for the scar, dent and battle damage?

    No more yellow! I decided to paint over the mustard stains... I like making rash decisions.

    As for the scar, yes I was thinking about painting it in silver. I'll post more pictures later this weekend.

    Looks pretty good so far. Are you gonna do 2 color weathering?
  16. Jun 29, 2008, 10:01 PM - Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics) #41

    Looking pretty cool. I can't wait to see it weathered up a bit. Too clean! I've been following your BF's Jango progress and am digging it. Did watching him go through it make you want one for yourself? Welcome to the sickness once you start this it's hard to slow down.
  18. Jun 29, 2008, 11:26 PM - Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics) #43

    Thanks man. Yeah I can't wait to weather it. I have been watching/helping Phil, it looks like a lot of fun!! He talked me into starting a a Fem Mando and promised me I could paint it pink so I was all about it. Its a good use of my time. I love doing it!
  19. Jun 30, 2008, 3:15 AM - Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics) #44

    couldn't resist the pinstripes! hand painted some metal scratches. Hitting it with a clear coat tomw then weathering. Done for the night.

    may have been asked already. but.

    you ARE going to put in a real visor right?

    edit: ok i saw you said youd cut the piece out. is the visor long enough ie: its behind that piece?

    Something you may wanna consider when applying the topical weathering is using an artists sponge to create a scuffed effect. I found that with topical weathering, it looks much more realistic then trying to hand paint it on.

    So far so good! =)

    Yeah, I ordered the Bobamaker visor and hardware so it fits the dp96 perfectly. I just wanted to wait to put it in last.

    Thanks! I do plan to do the weathering with a sponge and wipe away the excess method. I plan to finish it up tonight so hopefully I will have some pics to post.
