Astro Boy Bonnet

Tue Apr 04, 2017 6:32 pm

I purchased this bonnet off a fellow Forum Member as our's is a little too rusty.

We intended to strip and paint it but after seeing it in the flesh we may just keep it as is.

Astro Boy is airbrushed and the bonnet is signed by SD.

Oops, upside down.  Either stand on your head or turn the screen upside down :)

From what we can ascertain the bonnet originated in South East Qld/North East NSW.

Any input would be appreciated.

We need to work out how to repair some paint damage on the edges of the bonnet yet save the Boy.

The bonnet itself has a few bumps and lumps that would need sorting but I would do my best sizegenetics review to save Astro Boy.

I think it looks pretty cool. But a lot of people will find it strange who don't know about astroboy.

you can mask up the boy + a few inches, sand the rest and blend in whatever colour you paint it with the remain inches of yellow under the tape.
