Thank's ! :cheers

The paint is very very close to the one of the MR helmet and so also to the screen used.
It will fit perfect with the helmet and my chestbox now.
The beltboxes also got painted new in a high gloss black.(other black as on the chestarmor)

The bells are attached as the screen used :toothy

Ah ok, :wink:
Well my painter said:
Little bit of the force, little bit luck and tape on the backside :toothy

Update from my painter. 90 % finished.

And yes ... it looks very light, but the pic's were taken under very gloss lamps.
Silver is a bastard to photograph in bright light.

The paint is called Sikkens Argentum, which is very very hard to paint cause it runs like water.
Here's a pic of the paint in other light.

First he tried to use Rub and Buff , but that was a distaster.
Not hold up very well.

The paint work is clean and smooth. Looking good! The grey in natural light has a nice look to it. :thumbsup

The silver is a little bit darker as on this pic's will try to make some better ones with the Nikon from my girlfriend.
As far as i would say it matches the screen used silver and black perfectly.

I let painted the beltboxes as well in a dark black,too and finaly found a way to attach the chestbox.
Need some new electric , Dioxide where are you brother :toothy
Image

I use the magnetic force now( and it's realy a pain to put the box now off)
Image

New cod is also on the way, i think that's all what i have to do on him....for the moment.
To be continued.... :cool:
