When I put the first coat of green paint on, the paint started cracking. This made me take off all of the paint, bondo, and liquid putty until my last coat of fiberglass (which was a lot of bondo and liquid putty). The project was due today, so I could not go back and re-do everything. There are dips and dents in the helmet, but I don't think that takes away from it much. I may do another helmet, I'm thinking a Recon helmet, and it will definitely look 100% better than this one. Stay tuned. Now for the obligatory pictures. :D [url=http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg513/scaled.php?server=513&filename=imagemht.jpg&res=landing]Before the cracks.[/url] [url=http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg217/scaled.php?server=217&filename=imageiwa.jpg&res=landing]Disaster Strikes (cracking)[/url] [url=http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg849/scaled.php?server=849&filename=imagevgoa.jpg&res=landing]Front View, after a swift recovery.[/url] [url=http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg252/scaled.php?server=252&filename=imagenlb.jpg&res=landing]Back[/url] [url=http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg6/scaled.php?server=6&filename=imageiya.jpg&res=landing]Top[/url] [url=http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg31/scaled.php?server=31&filename=imageijqq.jpg&res=landing]Side[/url] [url=http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg35/scaled.php?server=35&filename=imageqwl.jpg&res=landing]Padding (real Spartans wear pink)[/url] And of course, everyone wanted to wear it.
