With the ears done, and still not wanting to face the rest of the helmet, I thought I’d make a start on my SideWinder EE-3. I plan to follow this excellent build thread
but realised I’d need some milliput for a start, so while I wait for that to arrive I bit the bullet and got the helmet out of the cupboard. This is where I was at 8 months ago:
It was t as dusty as I’d expected it to be but there was dust. I wasn’t sure how best to wipe it down without disturbing the maskol and I was very confused about what stage I was at and whether or not I’d finished the grey damage. I also realised I’d painted the kill stripes damage just above the headband in silver when it actually isn’t.
Anyway, all these things and the fact that I just feel I could do better overall led me to the difficult decision to start again on the dome. Sandpaper and acetone at the ready, here I go. See you soon (ish) …
