Title: Zouka E'tad's buckets. Assassin , enforcer (WIP??)
Post by: Zouka E'tad on Aug 06, 2012, 02:00 AM
so this is my first time ever working on a project such as this so the quality of my bucket may not be that good but  i tried my best with the basic tools that i had  :D

my first colors seemed to glossy and seemed to stand out too much for my liking  so i sanded most of it off and repainted

this is what came out after my second attempt  to paint it .

thanks  Niabi! ;D    . so after trying multiple ways of making the visor stick , and it always popping off  , it came to me .
i had to shape the visor to the helmet . i felt really dumb but now im just waiting for the epoxy in the helmet to cure (https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/s720x720/313128_447681038588541_1595269528_n.jpg)

so i realized i had beeen using too low of a grit fir sanding ( 140  :blank: )  so i sanded down with a 600 wetsand and it came out looking alot better . then started my repainting (https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/s720x720/527975_451271178229527_1919311036_n.jpg)

also added a mythosaur skull with a stencil i attempted to make , pain in the butt .

then started the weathering and carbon dusting  and here it is currently . . (https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/533197_451271581562820_2052023473_n.jpg)

gonna have to redo the inside of the helmet cause my little bro decide to knock it off the table and the jb weld holding the visor broke also the visor is cracked ...... luckily i reinforced the cheeks connection to the rest of the helmet of it would have humpty dumptied :o

so recently i bought a new bucket from jarek tahl-t that i was planning to work on and let my friend use for events here at my campus .

so here are some pics .

painting on the balcony of my new apartment ha

i know there are some slight imperfections on the paint ( cause it started to rain when i was painting so i rushed it :? ) but i plan to wet sand it down to get rid of the line on the top , and i may buy a new visor later but i will attempt to clean it up a little more .

my assassin is on hold for a bit since my brother dropped it . the damage was sorta bad inside the bucket . the jbwelded screws were torn out of the helmet and left giant holes in the inside and a broken visor .... but i bondoed the holes and in the process of sanding it down .. but im using sand paper and a sponge to even it out to fit the visor inside correctly again.. but im doing slowly cause calculus home work is taking up most of my time  :-\

post a pick of it in a bit

so i finally fixed my assassin after weeks of seeing it sad and broken on my shelf  :D :D :D and added some battle damage and personality to the enforcer !(https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/419450_463369557019689_182890617_n.jpg)
