    It is a very subtle effect. I did a steel wool rub-down on my PP3 once I got done with it.
    I had used Polly Scale clear flat, which if you've never tried it, is just a touch "milky" when
    it's airbrushed on. It's also dead flat, so that's why I used the steel wool.
    But as I mentioned, it's really hard to get an even look all over the helmet. I wasn't so
    worried about doing it on the PP3, as that has a really worn look overall.
    I tried some polyurethane satin clear on another resin model and it worked pretty well on that. I think it was the finish of the resin kit that helped (and whatever paints they used). I guess the scary part is sinking in so much time and money into a helmet build and paint-up -- and then to screw it over with a clearcoat -- its not exactly a trivial thing.

    Thanks for the props, brothers. Finishing up the overall build this weekend (What? Halloween already? How'd that happen?). Hopefully more pix to follow.
