I began work in December 2007 on my OSCS Commander Gree helmet. It's been a long process, but I wanted to make sure I did my best. Included below are pics as the helmet progresses from right out of the box to as it exists as of Feb. 12, 2008.
There are still some areas to clean up and some lines to define, but so far I am pretty happy with the progress.
If anyone is interested to know paint colors or techniques, just let me know and I'll be glad to share. I know their are many out there better at this than me, so any advice is welcome as well.

Face camo painted and toothpaste method used on top to get the flaked-paint look.

Next step is the off-white of the cheek tubes and back areas. I'll post pics of those within the next couple of days.
