Well I didn't get much of a break between commissions. :lol: But that's ok!

I'm starting a new FPH2 helmet for JCFett. He's sent me some great accessories with this one. Machinecraft metal ears, a metal Borden, a TF range finder topper, areal Casio MQ-1, as well as a light kit and servo that he'll install. Very cool stuff!

I've started the prep and got the helmet shell all cut and trimmed this afternoon.

Here's the helmet as it stands tonight.

Threw some primer on the helmet today. It's not clean and shiny anymore, but that's ok. :)
Also shot some primer on the MQ-1 board.

Making good progress with the rear panels.
I got them stenciled, then masked using my Winsor and Newton masking fluid.

The dark green was airbrushed on. It looks like a mess at this stage, lol.

After removing the liquid mask, I refined the shapes of the damage areas with a liner brush and added some smaller detail. Now the panels are ready for some gray and silver.

Got the big scrape on the right panel done. It's an eye crosser! o_O The remaining sections on this panel will probably take less time than this one area, lol.

Here are the first damage areas on the dome.
I love doing the network of fine scratches on this section. They really give the helmet some character.

Yeah moving pretty good on this one!

I got the cat scratch area finished up. This is my second favorite feature on the whole helmet.
