Whilst clearing out my attic I found my sons old Optimus Prime helmet. I was loathe to throw it out and it was just begging for a repaint.

It started life like this.

I striped it back as far as I could.

I gave it a base coat of metallic blue.

Masked off for the metallic silver.

I'm adding battle damage as I go and I will weather it once the base coats are done.

******* UPDATE *******

Eventually got around to finishing this project.

it was good practice, I had a couple of issues with paint batches not matching but happy with the result. 100 times better than the drab purple plastic.

Thanks for looking
