Here are some progress pics of Buckeye01's bucket. It's a Skygunbro helmet being painted up in the ESB scheme. I'll post some more pics later tonight...

Man, that looks sweet! I can't wait to see more! I am a little concerned about how far the rf stalk ear cap sticks out. Is it me, or is it protruding a little to much? That definately made my day bro! Thanks!

The earcap is sticking out a little more than it would if it were glued on because I just secured it with some folded over masking tape for the pictures. However the SGB buckets do have the older style 'thicker' onepiece earcaps kind of like the old MS1's.

Awesome work as usual bro, your painting skills with cans astounds me. I'm using your technique/colors on mine ATM and if it comes out even close to what you do I'll be happy.

That's exactely why I wanted him to fix my bucket up! :lol: I was blown away with his non-topical bucket he did a few months ago. I wish I had the extra change laying around to get it, but this is the next best thing.

Looks great! Are those kill stripes decals?

Thanks for all the kind words guys! The killstripes are not decals. They are painted on. I use the old fashioned method of masking off each killstripe with masking tape and mustard. The masking tape helps create a bit of an edge build up when painted. I think it adds a cool raggedness to the overall look of the helmet.

Cal- The scratches on the cheek are supposed to be there. They will tone down with weathering mists and washes.
