UPDATE: MARPAT Desert Camo HALO Helmet

In case anyone remembered my last post about this paintjob and was waiting for it, my sister has received her MkVI helmet intact.  Here she is trying it on:

She asked me, "Does this helmet make me look fat?"


Then she wandered down to the armory on base and borrowed a machine gun for some more pics:

The colors were not a bad match. More angles:

On closer inspection, I should've added a lot more of the darker shades of tan.  Plus, with the different sheen of the plastic helmet against the fabric of her uniform, the helmet looks a bit too bright when photographed with a flash:

Still, I'm pretty damned proud of this one.

Stay tuned while I try to talk myself out of painting one in NAVPAT blue digital camo to match my Navy working uniform...
