DTCorvus Posted July 8, 2017 Report Share Posted July 8, 2017 (edited) Here we go with my WIP thread for my TKC. Followed are the pictures I have so far from working on my bucket. This first setup the taping off for laying down the blue stripe and showing the anchors on the ear caps. The next two are showing the completion of three layers of 3 different shades of blue; Royal, Brilliant and Spa. Some of the fine worn areas were achieved by using liquid latex as a masking agent. Also if you stand back and mist the paint in spurts you can get the speckled effect. I also brushed on a some Transparent Oriental Blue and Blue Metallic for highlights. Weathering!!!! Here are the two squirrel fans I have installed on the backside of my mic tip. I used 1" screws to attach them. Testing out the white noise generator…I mean fans in my helmet. Now I have to figure out how to stop the fans from vibrating my helmet. At the moment they are attached to a longer screw behind the mic tips. I'm wondering if I should glue down the other side to the helmet, will that do the trick? After this I will be getting one of those "whisper 2000" sound amplifiers and mod'ing it to fit in my helmet. That way I can hear what is being said to me. I have seen a couple of different ones at Harbor Freight and they are pretty inexpensive.
