Maybe a couple of you guys will recognize the position of the paint chippings. Wink

This is, like the pics of my TM 1mm armor, pre-weathering:

It's not meant to be an exact replica, but I think it's kinda close (little less f-d up than the inspiration Wink )

Another really good looking chipped helmet - a look that is fast coming en vogue !!

The days of prestine, clean and shinny are getting further away with each new build Smile

Here's the inside, and it already had to take a good beating with some rubber trim.
Maybe more weathering to come...that stuff does not really wanna show up in photos.

Grab yourself some cheap news paper and rub it hard on your lid and armour so the ink comes off,you get some very good results.Looking good so far.

Example.

What you get is a very fine layer of grim and if you screw the paper up and rub you will get scratch lines.

Thanks, I already tried the newspaper thing and it did not really show up all that much...might try again with cheaper paper with ink that comes off easier.

PostSubject: SFS replica, kind of...   HDPE style ANH stunt with loads of paint chips I_icon_minitimeFri Jun 17, 2011 2:22 pm

Inspired by the latest awesome SFS replica thread, I went back and snapped a couple of pics of my own humble replica attempt.
These pics are all done after weathering, and I tried to put all the grime and wear in the spots where they are on the original SFS helmet:

Thanks Rolf, but mine is more like a "close approximation" and is not 100%.

I will see if I can upload a couple comparison pictures later, those will show where mine is quite off from the real SFS. Wink
Still, I'm quite happy with the overall used look&feel.

I made these real quick&dirty, they still show: close, but no cigar.

Just fell in love with your helmet, Blimy don't get to say that every day.Just had a think about what i just said,and i stand by the words i have used.very nice ,One of the most accurate looking lids i have seen to date.Not just the chips and weathering but the way its been put together.the brow is spot on even the ear trimming and angle.

Love it mate. HDPE style ANH stunt with loads of paint chips 458483
