    Well I was wondering what some of you guys thought. I didn't bondo it to smooth it out due to my lack of time before halloween. I will take time for that next year. But other than that let me know what you think. Maybe there are some easy cheap ways I can make it look better?

    All the pictures are on my site. http://nickblanton.com

    Yeah, i collect guns. I mainly buy AK parts kits because they are cheap. They are easy to fix back up, because the receivers are easy to fold. So i fix them and sell them to make money. M16's are nice but aren't my favorite by far. I am a college student. If I had more money I would buy nicer guns. Until then I will stick with AK's. But please I really would like a few comments on the helmet. I would like a few easy things to make it look better quick.

    That's pretty good man, Looks like the chest plates of the armor are coming along good too, I did think it was funny to see a gun in the oven though, peace-

    Helmet looks pretty good, I think it could use a little detailing, though... even if you don't want to bondo to add shape, just painting black lines in would make it look a little more finished.

    what do you mean by black lines? like along the creases or folds?

    Question, did you use primer before you painted it or just spray it directly? Also, why did you bake the AK-47 ><?

    Yeah, i used primer first.

    I broiled the AK steel parts because when you buy a parts kit it is covered in cosmoline. This is a type of grease to keep it from getting rusty. The easiest way to get it off is to get it really hot. It normally just burns off. So I put it in the oven when my mom was gone.
