I'm looking for a replica Green Hornet T.V. series mask. I am looking at CY Productions. Are any other makers out there?

Hi Elvis Brian
I saw plenty of GH masks on Ebay,did you check it out yet?
N.B.
I assume that  you are a big Elvis fan,did you ever see Shawn Klush or Donny Edwards  both impersonators?I can't believe the ressemblance these dudes have to the King!
Ciao!

www.monstersinmotion.com sell a very nice GH mask, but you have to paint it, but as all of CY's masks really need to be repainted anyway (they are all molded out of green urethane but not a very accurate green), not a bad deal.

I own a CY one myself.  Repainting was easy.  I've tried on a monstersinmotion one myself, and the CY fit me better.  So individual fit may dictate what you'll like in the end if you're going to wear it.  If not...

Many thanks.  i ordered one from him this morning, hoping for a quick delivery.  Smiley

To second Elvis' request, can anyone (Scott?) give us the secrets to a great repaint (type of paint, color, pre-paint work, ect)?

No secrets here.
I used Rust-Oleum gloss spray paint in Hunter Green.  No prep other than making sure it was dust free.  I didn't even primer.

Many thanks, Scott!  Glad to hear it's an easy job.

Would that same brand/color be appropriate for the Gas Gun?  I bought an unfinished resin a couple weeks ago...

Can't remember Scot but I think I used either the Rust-oleum Hunter Green or Forrest Green on the ones I made! It's very good paint!  Wink
  

What a GREAT place to be!!!

Yeah, my gas gun is a Billy.  Van Williams was very impressed with it.

Got my mask from Clint, very happy with it.  He shipped fast and it looks sweet, don't think I'll repaint after all.

The gun I have to do, so I will do as Billy says.  Smiley  Thanks again, guys!

I have an all-metal Billy Gas-Gun.
Baked powder(?) finish!
It's as close as you can get to real one! (real as in: if the GH were real)
It's the pride of my GH collection, as is my Billy Bat-Belt the centerpiece of my Bat-collection (right alongside my folding batarang that Adam West held and then breathed his "Adam West mojo" onto, back in 2007!)
