WWII Captain America Helmet

Introduction: WWII Captain America Helmet

About: How about you just ask?

Here is the Captain America WWII Helmet I made over the weekend. I saw the helmet at a store for $10 and couldn't help myself once I saw it. 

Step 1: Items Needed

Here is a list of the items you are going to need 

Helmet (Surplus stores or where ever you can find)
Spray Paint
1. Primer
2. Blue
3. White
Scotch Paint Tape
Utility Knife

Step 2: PRIME!!!!

Here is the primer stage

Make sure to get an even coat

Step 3: Blue

Here is the blue paint. 

Same as the primer get it as even as you can
I did about two and half coats

Step 4: How Do You Spell A?

Here is the A part

I used the scotch tape here and covered the front part and wrote a big A in the front (no pics)

Then went and cut out the A with the utility knife. 
Some of the paint came of with the tape here around the A (I used the knife too hard)

When I put on the white paint it made a mess. And the paint rubbed off to the actual helmet no idea why?

So I used the primer again and thats how I did the A

Step 5: Finished Product

Here is the finished product!!

Again the white paint gave me an issue and rubbed off

And I used a fan to help the paint dry quicker

    It's a Russian WWII M52 Helmet look it up online you'll find it but it might not cost 10 dollars. Get it off ebay, Amazon ect.
