Hello gents. Mirroring my post on TDH. Starting with the helmet. I ordered a cast from Red Bow Props and can not be happier. It was a fantastically smooth cast which needed extremely little work to prep for paint outside of removing the visor and smoothing the bottom out. I will post a comparison of size next to a BS proto helmet and an EFX. It is considerably smaller and for me, being 5'6" and 130lbs, is perfect. This was my first attempt at a helmet ever and trimming/prepping were easy enough. I slipped with the dremel a couple of times and had to use bondo to fill out the cheek and mandibles where I had taken chunks out...rookie mistake. However it all smoothed out perfectly fine. I used the grey rustoleum primer and then masked off the damage using cap-that and howtoboba.com reference photos and some plain personal liberties. I used rustoleum texture spray for the texture and applied slightly heavier on the upper cheeks. I used Montana spray cans for the majority of the color. Storm for the dome and lower cheeks, Tag Green for upper cheeks, Cardinal for the mandibles/ back trim, and Celtic for the rear green. I used orange for the killstripes and the 19th one flat black. I'm still in search of colors for both ears, so that will be updated as I find them. I also gave the whole helmet a few acrylic black washes and that really toned the paint and made it look really nice. I will be adding the silver damage topically as well as adding the paint in the turn signals and then I'll airbrush some more wear once helmet is complete. I will post updates here as I have them. Also received my RKD armor. Aside from the chest plates being very curved (I fixed with a heat gun) pieces feel quality and the smaller size is going to be essential for me. My only other issue is that the left chest doesn't have the cutouts for the chest display molded in, so it looks like I'm at a standstill with that until I order my Fettronics. Then I'll have to eyeball it. I'll post updates on that in the next few days hopefully.
