Ozymandius Hi! I'm pretty young (born in 2003), I only recently discovered The Rocketeer. I'm glad I finally checked it out, its a fantastic movie.
I am not sure if this has already been asked but, what painting method do you recommend for one of your kits? The cold cast ones look beautiful but are considerably out of my price range although, I hope to eventually purchase one. My initial thought was to use rub-n-buff, but that can reactivate and has tarnished over time on my past projects. My guess as to how they painted the hero props would be with an airbrush. any help or input from anyone is appreciated greatly.

:)

I use basically the same technique as Mr Mold maker but slightly simplified so that it can be repaired easily.
Black primer topped with Rustoleum Bright Gold (the only good paint they make IMO). The aged brass effect comes from doing a sponge wash of burnt umber, only I use a brush instead of an airbrush.

Brush on a wash of acrylic Burnt Umber, then sponge off with a damp terry cloth towel. Repeat as necessary. Last step is to give it a good gloss clear coat to bring back some of the luster.

Thank You Oz! I haven't used Rustoleum Bright Gold yet, but I will try it.

Payment is handled via Paypal invoice but I also accept alternative methods if you prefer. To order, please leave a message here and then PM me with your email and shipping addresses. You will then be sent a Paypal invoice (same thing as Ebay) that will automate the checkout process when you click "Pay Now".


I'm also happy to offer Layaway payments to anyone that wants them. I simply set aside an item once you've made a deposit and then you make payments that are convenient for you. There is no interest , no charge, no strings attached. This is a hobby and paying for it should be as stress free as possible.

I don't add padding due to size differences, but I do recommend Valor's Rocketeer helmet liners. They fit perfectly and finish off the look with the leather straps. Done / Completed - Rocketeer Helmet Liner
I am very Interested in a Rocketeer Helmet . Let me know if you still offer these ??
Best, KPAX09

Anything else Rocketeer based you have to offer? My helmet I got from you was very nice, painted up really well.
