Recommended Posts

I purchased two 1/16th scale helmets from charlie over at ProTech and they came in today. heres what I did with one of them......

Heres the helmet fresh out the packaging....



And here it is after about 3 hours of masking and spraying.......oh and I drilled it out too. I also have a visor but I cant put it on untill after I shoot the clear on it.....

Clever layout again! That's a very pretty blue. Earlier you wrote Orian Blue....I'm not seeing that anywhere. (or Orion Blue). Is it a HOK color? Google came up with a 50'S CADDY COLOR...???

I apologize if I stated the wrong color but the paint is Oriental Blue and yes it is HOK.

Man ROM that door looks killer, I really like that smooth clean circular cut for the opening to the door latch. Care to share with us how you made the cut so precise?

Wasnt hard Bart I just drew a dot on the window the size I needed with a black sharpie, then I used a drill bit in my dremel to punch a starter hole , then all I did was ream the hole out with the drill bit untill all the black ink was gone. Wahla ! instant access hole. B)
