im working on weathering the helmet right now, but instead of jumping right into painting my $43 don post boba, i have decided to paint a normal bicycle helmet first, its already painted but i cant find my camera...also im going to add some sandtrooper sanding to it, so its not fully done lol but tell me what you think when i put up some pics in just about 5 minutes

ALRIGHT!!! i got pics!! (y) although the camera is really crappy so it did absolutly no justice...i did it first by putting a light grey primer then coating it with glossy black, then misting with chrome, then sprayed the tip of a ripped off tough sponge, alot like steel wool only not so tough lol and did all the scratches...then after that i did the sand trooper weathering from some website i found a while back...the white one with sierra mist sticker on it isnt what i used, but basically thats what it looked like when i started lol

I think it looks really good. Were you sent to mogadishu in 93 as part of a Bigwheel battalion? Seriously though I think you did an awesome job on the weathering. Heck it looks like you could even just keep that helmet for another outfit.
