Well had a bit of a browse on the interweb for pictures of spacesuits for some inspiration and to be honest they’re pretty dull. Either all white or all silver. So that didn’t provide much to work with.
So doing my own thing pretty much. Still thinking of it being a Russian suit so wanted some red in there and rest metallic. So threw on some Halfords Primer and went to work with some Citadel paints while watching TV.
Probably not how it will finally look as not sure about the helmet part being same colour as the suit. Wondering now if the brassy colour used for highlights might not be better? But was going to do the visor with clear orange, so this may change the overall look and in that case the brass wouldn’t work well.
So here are where it is now.
