Thinking of doing a stencil to make some curving arcs so that the dome of the helmet kind of has a bit more deadpool look but without going full force with it. Also realizing that trying to do the masking weathering effect first before doing other details like patterns was a mistake haha.

Haha well it's again one of the reasons why I'm glad I started so early in prep for C7. Building a kit has turned into so much more of an adventure so I'm supremely glad I started working so early.
yeah that wilol happen...hope for the best plan for the worst

Worked on redoing some of the weathering and damage today and added two pieces to help give a bit more detail to the bucket. Really liking it now and will do some more detail with some modeling paint along with adding the visor but apart from that and applying some padding I think I'm squared away for the moment. Debating the brown or black wash.

That visor still looks really rough.  You'll need to even it out, a lot.

Yeah that will be a job for the next workday but it may also need to wait till I get the visor. Getting some of the angles for the visor has been difficult even with new dremel tools and again the inside routinely misbehaves so eventually I've leaned more towards functionality.  Thank you Ciryc.

Sounds like a good idea. I was worried about using a dremel or something a bit powerful as it would probably set me back a bit as far as the paint job. Not that I can't do more with the paint job but going back just to clean up a bit was sounding like a fun day >_<.
