Now to get the ear caps, I figured out how to give an impression of antenna instead of cannons, I'll have them angled back a few degrees.

I hope to be finished with the exterior work on the helmet (minus black wash) before halloween! Look forward to showing you the finished product!

Visor is in!


Having some minor issues with the ear caps, one I feel the paint is too glossy, the other had an interesting issue where the paint sprayed on fuzzy, then dried cracked and didn't seem to like extra coats.

I would like to add some more tint to the visor, in bright rooms (and likely outside) you can see through it from the front, any suggestions as to what % tint to get to darken an already tinted visor?

I got ACH pads inand am now just trying to find the right placement where I can see, put the helemt on and off, and not have my nose touching or bumping the visor.

One earcap on. One to go. Ordered more magnets today to hopefully get a better hold on them. Tell me what you think so far!  :D

Personally I think the weathering looks too splotchy, not like real paint chipping. I've painted and repainted my helmet/armor 3 times to get the weathering the way I wanted it though because I'm picky. I would also suggest some more surface scratches both before and after black/brown wash. You want to have old dirty scratches but you should also have newer/cleaner damage to give the illusion time.

Thank you! It's a bit late to redo the splotches, and I'm happy with the way they cam out. I definitely take your advice about the scratches! Thank you so much for the advice!

It's a pre vizsla season 4/5, this one is an eternal armory cast. I've been very pleased with how it can out  ;D.
