    1st Helmet Part two

    Ok, More pictures of my progress. I have begun 'smoothing' out the weathering with shades of grey and begun adding details. I really don't like the side shot with the kill stripes. It looks very crooked at this angle, yet, when I hold it up it looks pretty sweet in real light(thanks to TK409 for the template). Also, I hand painted the ear piece instead of using decals.

    That's looking good. One suggestion though. The ESB version of the helmet only has 14 kill stripes. Keep up the good work.

    Your right Fettfullofdollars. I am gonna do my 1st setup as my own impression(been busy killin ya see). Later I plan on doing an M_S bucket to movie spec. Up to now I've only done models. This is much larger scale and the detail work is still an experiment for me. I am finding some of my methods just are not practical on things this large. So far I am finding layered paint and mustard seem to be the way to go for realistic chipping and weathering. My next bucket will be planned accordingly...heheh...but this is very fun and I hope it will turn out a good looking (non-movie accurate) version.
