    Wow this stuff is great. The laser rifle is coming along really nicely. Your foam work is really neat too. Is the Pip Boy also foam?

    Jeez how has nobody else seen or posted on this thread yet? Well done mate. Looking forward to seeing more.

    Nice job, may I ask for a quick step by step on your paint method? My build looks ok but the paintjob is really letting it down, and that's basically the right color and weathering that I need myself.

    Its really simply.
    First I primed it, then i spraypainted it silver and for the weathering I just slightly hand brushed on dark gray paint.

    Did you seal the foam at all before priming? Also I was curious about both your brushing method and the paint you used. I've been blackwashing with acrylic paint, are you dry brushing, and are you using acrylic?

    Sorry for all the questions buddy.

    Very impressive! Sorry if I ask some dumb questions, but I'm new here, and new to the hobby entirely. The entire helmet is made of the 4mm foam? Is that the craft foam you get at craft stores, or something else? What materials are you using for the laser rifle?

    Yes and I bought the foam online and the laser is also made from foam.

    the NCR ranger helmet is finished and has leds for the headlights and eyes, mini fan for the cooling and a mic wire that connects to a voice amplifier.
