Congratulations on the new helmet! I really like the mock up you did! I’m going to be looking forward to seeing which version you decide to go with.

Can't wait to see finished pics of this, your ESB was superb. If you want any pictures for reference, please let me know. It would be so cool if you could put a hard hat liner in this one.

Pics pics pics please!

So far I have painted the frown and the vocorder and started with the earcaps. It is work in progress. I'm not very happy with gloss since I used black coal satin from Humbrol but the results are glosier than I expected. I'll wait couple days to see how the paint cures

Couple more pics of my progress with the ear caps.
