thnx Dave, it came out ok for my first tight curved surface job ( not as easy as it sounds ), i should also add that this job wasn't based around the quality of the art,( as the helmet was just an old piece of junk i had lying around with the silver compliance sticker long since removed, many paintjob colours prior ), was more of a test of the compatability between my airbrush paints , the clear coating and the fibreglass ( or undercoating of the original paint ).
i'm not a painter, and by no means an expert, im just a hobby artist that taught myself how to airbrush , the hard way.
i have done a few paying jobs, but i didnt really get into it to sell it out , was more out of a lack of funds to be able to afford the expert jobs, of which there wasnt many to choose from ( one or two in my area at the time )
