Variant: F1 Race Suit

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

3rd August 2013: Helmet 2 Side view! It was horrible trying to keep things in line while working with the curve of the helmet. XD I did a lot of measuring before I started painting on. :')

3rd August 2013: Helmet 1 All done! This was an absolute pain to do so neatly and it's not perfect, but I'm quite pleased with the result. :)

3rd August 2013: Helmet base coat I removed the stickers and sanded it down, sprayed it with a nice gloss black and have measured and marked out where I need to paint. The base coat is on now and I'm painting it on with acrylics.

3rd August 2013: Patches All painted free hand onto felt with acrylic paint. It was more difficult than it looks! XD

9th July 2013: Helmet and stuff \o/ Not road reliable anymore, so it's going to be sanded/stripped and painted in a more matt black. It's currently kind of sparkly <_< and there's some stickers on it that need removing. Once it's all black, I need to paint on his name on either side and the coloured stripes (which are the colours of his old school, I do believe!) Then there's a Union Jack with his name and a Bell helmet logo too.

I've also got references for the many, many patches, which I'll be making myself as they can get quite pricy and the ones I want are seventies ones and quite obscure versions to buy. >__<
