    Default First time texturing M42

    Hey all! I have been restoring German helmets for years and I like to think I am pretty good at it but despite this I have never textured the shells before like they were originally during the war and thought about time I tried! Firstly I do apologize I got that obsessed with getting this helmet finished today I forgot to take before & during pics so I can only show you the finished article. I know the texture is heavy but I have seen some originals like this. Either way I am pretty happy with it and dont think its half bad for first time! I used aluminium oxide texture bought from Jim Jacques & SOF field-green paint. I try not to get to hooked up on RAL codes plus I usually end up camouflaging the helmets anyway and will probably end up doing this one as well. I do not know why the shade of paint looks so different in each pic but the first pic is how it looks in hand. Cheers! Sean. Click image for larger version.
