Just got a new bucket to build, something proper.

Here is the WIP

This is it after Bondo and sanding the seam at the visor.  This was my first time using Bondo, but once I started using it, it worked out great.


Pieces Parts


Fitting the Stalk




Ear cap altered, drilled, tapped and bolted (for fitting).



The other Ear caps drilled, tapped and bolted (for fitting).









Primed





Giving the Primer an hour to Dry inside, then the metal coat so it can cure for a few days.

Kiss my shiny metal...

That is a clean bucket, who is the maker?

It is an M-DSB.  They are defunct, but someone else has their molds I think.

That'd be NME. The mold itself is gonna die soon, so of you think you might want another one, get it now.

That is a very nice looking bucket.  Very clean and sharp lines with nice proportions.  Looking forward to seeing it finished.

You know it!  Doing the premium outfit for it too.  Nice pads, Fan Kit, and a more appropriately mounted vizor.

OK, I have added the primary weathering and the black undercoat.  The only things that will remain black are the stalk, and the upper cheeks when I am done.



And with the masking fluid (children`s Colgate) removed.



Tomorrow I will apply tape, more fluid to continue the weathering and paint the blue.  I have had some issues with the spray settling roughly on the dome when I paint, but I have been using the white scrubby pad with my mouse sander to lightly remove the texture.  I did it with the silver and it worked well. 

You also may notice some pitting on the rangefinder.  This was the only part of the kit that had some mold issues.  I thought I had sanded it down, but it really came out when the silver went on.  I have decided to continue accentuating it to look like chemical spray damage and will add "rust" to it at the final paint before I dull coat.

Looks pretty good so far man. The lighter level of damage looks pretty good, rather than the more heavily damaged look that most people go for.

More progress:


Primary Paint Scheme and Weathering complete:




Going to let this cure and then I will make a rust wash and the kill stripes, which I will do stenciled but by hand.
