My Mystery Helmet & F'glass DP95 dlx- comp.-Lotsa pics

I got my Mystery Helmet last weekend, and it is AWESOME!!:D I can't believe the quality and accuracy. Plus, I can pull it straight on my huge noggin!:lol: WITH FANS!

I got it last Friday, and finished painting and weathering it by Sunday night, because I'm impatient. Plus, paint weathers more easily when it's still tacky.;) Tape pulls it off nicely, plus scratches are easier.

Some of you may remember my DP95 recast- I added a half inch to the height, and almost 1/2 to the width. It's the same width as the MH, about 1/4" taller, and 1/4" shorter in depth. Weird.

I repainted my fiberglass DP after it was done ESB, but the MH is all me. And I think it turned out better. It came out darker, which is what I intended. And I'm very happy with the results.

Some weathering tips: Scrape chunks of the dome green off while they are all still unset. That's how I got the "Sage" to show through in spots. Also, use masking tape, wrapped around your hand, to pull off paint- especially where the wax or other undermask is.

The MH is the one WITHOUT the RF, btw.;) I took these pics just before I put my RF on it.

And before I added the red, and weathering. The "light spots" in the green (and on the silver), are the result of the wax candle I rubbed over the silver initially. I just scratched the light spots after painting it, and it works great.:) The dome and cheeks are dark, because I hadn't sanded through to the lighter shade.
