\\ UPDATE No. 8 << (Hey, that rhymes)

I haven't been able to achieve very much with this week, or last. My mind has been set on other phenomenons.

I really wanted that additional area of green on the helmet. I masked of the area, this time using a type of electrical tape for it's flexibility around curves, of the lower respirator / vent section and got to work. I wanted to cover everything as I didn't want to risk any over spray and ruin my weathering work.

Not much to this update, but I hope to draw this to a close soon.

The other phenomenons..


Looking good so far, nice to know another Aussie around here

Sean Bradley makes such wonderful casts, does he not? I'm drooling myself to go get a dutch helmet, so far that's not a option with my budget... Still gotta pay dem school fees >.<

I like your desert paint scheme, wonderful attention to detail. Also, your photos give enough detail on all the steps involved.

Great job! :thumbsup

Very Nice. I have been tossing back and forth getting one of Sean's helmets. My mellon size is the only thing that is making me hesitant.

A big thank you to all who have shown interest into this project. The larger part of 2016 hasn't been too kind - I lost someone close to me which resulted in everything to come to a halt. In short, please consider this project complete and watch this short video I made showing the helmet in it's final form.
