work continues...slow but steady... almost got my clone shoes done, using Kevs tutorial. cut down heel of loafer, notch the sides, and attach a strip down the middle. Now need to paint to match.

Biceps painted...right before the snow hit, LOL. painting would be so much nicer if the weather cooperated. Progress is progress i guess. did some more work to the thighs, then on to the calves...

So, a little more progress...1 thigh is done and primered, one calf is done, just needs paint...and while feeling adventurous...I have begun tackling what should be the hardest part of the paint at least...Keeli's bucket...

Spent alot time looking at pictures...finding center points on a helmet thats not completely symmetrical...and basically free handing the design with a cloth tape measure.

Here's the result of the drawing...


and here's what I've taped so far...calling it a night for now...




more to come...

So, I got the rest of the helmet taped and painted the other day. I'm giving it a bit of extra time before i hit it with another coat due to all the humidity weve had of late.

While I was in the painting mood, i also masked the primered thigh, and sprayed it as well...


the journey continues...

Well, painted, and masking removed...will definitely need some touch up on the helmet, just too many little pieces to make the rounded edges and points...led to bleed threw.





The thigh came out pretty clean.


Well...back to assembly for a bit...

Took Advantage of some of the warmer days the last week and did some more painting. Calves are done, just need to touch up spots.

OK, back to this with a little free time today. Wet sanded the helmet, and touched up the helmet to get rid of my over spray/bleed threw. Think its getting there. some more minor touches, then a dirty wash, and lens.

yeah...masking tape so often just doesn't do its' job....

on some of my tape jobs...I have started to take my finger and go over every edge a couple of times...
and
have also found that if you touch the sticky side of the tape at all while trying to place it...you also have issues with good adhesion....

I tried the "Frog Tape" ...which is very expensive and found that it does not do much of a better job than the 3M blue tape. The Frog Tape becomes immediately useless if you touch the sticky surface in any manner with your hands....

Yeah, i spent the extra money for the frog tape for the helmet, but I had to tear off so many little pieces to make the round edges, it still bleed thru. I am happy with the outcome of wet sanding and touching it up. once I make it dirty, i doubt anyone will notice...
Now to finish the rest...
