    My latest Bucket paintjob

    Finished this up today




    And a few outside in the late afternoon sun to show the detail




    I know, it's not Boba, but it's pretty cool I think.

    Re: My latest Bucket paintjob

    Awesome job. I am doing the same helmet right now.

    Would you mind a few questions?

    What did you use for the "dirt" in the red areas? If it's an acrylic how did you seal it? I am using acrylics and powders for the weathering on mine and am worries about melting them when I try to seal it all in.

    BTW - Did you scratch up the visor? I have always had a little problem with incredibly weathered helmets that have perfectly clean visors. I understand it from the point of view that you have to see out of them, just seems incongruous. It looks like your visor has some light scratching...

    Any tips for weathering around the aerators?
