    Thanks Pernicious! I've tried to put some water betweem the film and the plastic and the result wasn't good. But I didn't try to mix it with soap and I have not used the credit card...I'll do it as you suggest!
    Now I'll add some shadow effect between borders and then some scratches

    Oh sounds great! I'm looking forward to seeing more paint. I think the scratches really help convey the metal look. You are an inspiration. Best of luck in the final stages.

    Will you be dry-brushing it next, or are you leaving it newer looking like that?

    I think I'll do it but just for some scratch and battle damage with silver...

    Ok, so more like the actual in-game helmet.

    This is the idea, even if my helmet is not an 100% accurate replica of the real one...

    besides, while it looks to me that while wheatering may simulate real effects (shadows and dirt), dry-brushing with bright colors is quite unreal..

    Yeah, most people go way overboard with dry-brushing, or really any silver weathering for that matter. Personally, I like to keep it more subtle, and only in logical areas.

    This is looking spectacular Morkar! I only can hope I have as much patience as you have shown when I get to your point. In the meantime I'll just have to practice by waiting patiently to see yours assembled. :) I'm very excited for you!
