I will fix it.
My decent helmet from 2016 is in the background.  New helmet promises to be more authentic to the props. Masking is a tedious process, requiring much patience and precision - and trial and error. Ready for first airbrushing! Ready for first airbrushing! Airbrushing is a lot of fun.  The quality of the masking job will determine the quality of the lines. First airbrushing phase complete! It feels so good to see such crisp lines emerge from the mist. A pile of tape long in the making! I'm very pleased with this first iteration.
