MR Helmet partial repaint and dent relocation by slave1pilot


Well-Known Hunter
Hey guys,
I was commissioned to relocate the dent on another Master Replicas helmet.
It's a shame that the paint is not even close to where the physical dent is.

I painted out the old dent, and repainted it where it needs to be. i also added some scratches and weathering around the whole thing to closer resemble the helmet seen at CIV.
I also painted out the 15th Killstripe so that it only has 14 now.

I made an animated GIF to show the after, sorry no pics of before.

and here's a pic or two of the helmet when it isn't spinning to show the dent


and here's the removed Killstripe area;

You've painted the whole dome or just the area? I ask because I can't see the step between one paint and the other! Anyway, you have done a great job as always!


Sr Hunter
I've never actually held an MR helmet and was wondering if any sanding was needed when you painted out the 15th stripe.
Are the stripes (or any detail areas) raised at all? Can you feel them if you run your fingers over them?

I'm just curious, and great work! Your touch up blends perfectly. (y)


Sr Hunter
That's cool, thanks. I saw one at about arm's length a while back but didn't have an opportunity to examine it closely.
Apart from that visor pinch it looked like a really nice helmet.
