I made this hose out of some spare parts, after seeing some reference photos of this mask being used in real life.
I had a lot of help from my fellow modeller's with this task, one gentleman is on the BBICN forum. And he helped me immensely with making
the hose attachment.
The picture on the right, shows as advised, how I
have adapted parts from the Damtoys 78056 USMC Recon
Combat Driver Rebreather Set. Such as the connector
from the hose onto the mask, which is very similar to the reference
pictures I used. The cloth holder for the mask filter, was made from a
round flask holder, that I cut
down to size. And I also sewed two buckles onto the
top to hold the filter in place.
This mask was painted the same as the other mask, but I found the repainting of this
one was the most difficult, as I painted it by hand with a paintbrush. And I found that I had to paint small sections of the mask, and allow them to dry
before doing a next section. as this helped to stop the patching and streaking that I found was happening as I brush painted.
Once I had finished repainting the mask, I then gave it a drybrush with the
Tamiya Snow weathering powders.
The reflective lens for this mask, was made from some model car mirror lens
material. I first cut it to a rough shape for the lens cover, I cleaned the lens, and I then peeled off the backing and stuck it in place. I then very carefully cut around the extra lens edges with a sharp
model knife, at the same time pressing down on the edge, to keep the right shape.
