Well, time has come to go on the build for the upper mask.
Here some steps i have done in past so far.
Please have appreciation if i not go deeper in detail for the reveal mask single parts i have for that build.
It was part of the deal as i owned the parts not hang it on the big bell where they come from.
If you should have some special questions about them, feel free to send me a PM. :wink:


The raw cast.
Based on a MR helmet
Image
Image

Some clean up and fitting to the collar.
Also i removed the casted in mesh inside of the slots.Cause i have the screen used mesh i prefer to use this.
Image
Image

The next question was , how to make the liner fitting inside the mask?
After watched my ref pic's again and again i noticed the trim lines of the liner under some parts inside of the mask.
So i recreated that, first on a template.It was more a try and error but finaly it worked well.
I made the first template for the liner out of paper.Later as that fit, out of a old rubberliner i had left.
I not wanted to cut the very expensive screen used liner type i have first, if i should make a fault it not would be that problem.

Image

As next i made a basement fot some of the parts, that they fit exactly inside of the mask.
Thank's Carsten for your help at that point :thumbsup
Image

As this all was done , the mask got painted in the same black as the MR helmet.
Thanks Daniel for that wonderfull work :thumbsup

Image
Image

I thought well, all is done so far so let put the real liner inside.
But it comes as it has to come.
After i added the real liner and add the inner dome part, i noticed that there was something wrong. :ac10

As you can see here, the ring doesn't sit flush on the sides inside of the mask.
I not wanted to deal with compromisses so i removed the whole liner.

I made a ring where i set in the parts for the inner dome and fit the ring including the parts inside of my mask.
After that was done i fill it up arround and moulded it sit flush and perfect to the rest of the mask.
I let the part inside while mould it up arround, cause i later not got a wonky ring.
Works perfect.

Prepeard all for my airbrush.

Image

Brushed it nice matt black.
Image

After that was done it added the liner again, this time it fit as it should be.

So far my work, stay tuned for the rest of it :cool:
