    Here's the basic helmet, trimming the visor areas first. This is a really nice kit, my first attempt at a Boushh...

    So here is the 'ready to paint' helmet. After studying the detailed reference photos, I picked up on a couple of small areas I wanted to change. So, I have added an extra piece of flat styrene under the ear greeblies and reworked the ears to have a solid base. I also added a couple of small missing details to the ears. All the greeblies (except the forehead part) have been drilled and tapped so they are attached with Fett style M4 brass screws, making assembly and painting much easier. Finally I have machined in the physical damage, and primed the main helmet ready for paint. Next step is a series of colour test strips to nail the colours, layering and weathering used on this helmet. The leather will be on its way shortly so I'll have to figure out that part later...

    Let me know if you have any trouble with the leather G... Think I've still got enough left over from when I painted my Bouush a few years back to do another snout.. While my paint up certainly wasn't perfect back then, I was able to nail down a few often missed details and put them in a thread around here somewhere if you need any ideas... But I have no doubt that your paint job will be second to none my friend

    Hi Mate, thanks for that, I have the leather but not sure if it's going to stretch to the two helmets I'm painting (only doing one at the moment) so I may take you up on the offer. I've seen your thread, great paint job, did you ever post the paints you used? It would be great to know your colour list...

    Can't believe its nearly 7 months since my last post, sorry Dave ( and Mrs Dave!) So ,I have liquid masked the bright silver damage and shaded with a dark grey, next I will liquid mask the shaded silver damage before the first brown layer goes on...

    So here is the helmet with the first brown layer airbrushed on and once dried, gently buffed out with 0000 wire wool. This smoothes out the painted surface and softens details where they need it. All the liquid mask has been removed at this stage, not ideal but I need to follow the reference pictures closely so it's essential...

    Very nice! Wish I would have caught this sooner when you were correcting the greeblies as I had identified some of the parts used on the ears. For the rest I just designed and 3D printed them.

    Jayvee, did you get your leather from a local store or online?

    Hi mate - I picked up my orange/tan leather from an upholsterer friend of mine ages ago when I did mine. Actually had a really good amount in the right colour in his scrap pile, so he actually gave it to me for free. Weathered up, it seems to suit perfectly..
