    Mar 27, 2009, 1:15 AM - Sci-Fire/G2 Animated Rex Helmet #1

    This was a fun side project. It will be going to a family friend for his 8th birthday and who's a huge Rex fan. He's even having a Clone Wars themed party. I've already begged Stormtrooperguy for an accurate rf topper.

    The main paints used were all Rustoleum: Gloss white, Sail blue, Dark grey primer, and matte clear. The yellow was some Dupli-Color I had laying around.

    Thanks goes out to Sci-Fire and G2 for making such a great looking helmet!

    Thanks guys. Glad you approve. It's hard to do a bad job when starting with such an awesome helmet sculpt to begin with. To be completely honest, the end product is primarily the result of a "clean" paint job turn bad...so I figured why not make it weathered.

    What blue paint is that Cruzer? Looks on the money
