    I've started working on the visor area and have the left ear traced out to begin working on that. Just gotta keep pluggin' away...

    Jeez thanks man, now I feel like a total slacker!
    Absolutely incredible, how you manage to zoom through this yet get it so perfect is beyond me. Keep it up!
    Oh, are you using enamel or acrylics for this one?

    Looking good, love the Halls cameo in the pic above too!!

    What color did you use around the silver scraches, is that Lark Grey or is something else. The pics make it look like it has a bit of a greenish tone to it.

    Yes, the grey around the scratches is Lark Dark Grey. The greenish tint may be due to the lighting.

    Spent the evening applying the red to the brow and the left mandible. Tomorrow evening...the right side. I've also included some comparison pics of the AOSW Tour Helmet, my MS1, and the ESB Screen Version to highlight some of the differences in the helmet THEN versus the helmet as it exists today.

    I'm not...I hate having to drag out my airbrush. This is all brushed on or straight out of the spraypaint can.

    What did you use for the base green on the lower cheeks and dome that came in a spray can? The only RS color I could find were in small bottles.

    i love the fact that you're using spray cans!

    i did my helmet with the spruce green, and while it may not be the same stuff as the movie one was painted with, it's pretty bleepin' close!

    as for finding it... that can be a challenge.

    i got the spruce green from tk-1776. he special ordered it from home depot i think. iirc, you can special order any color from the brands that they sell, but there is a minimum purchase. i think he had to order a whole case of it.

    i like the challenge of getting things to look good with readily available stuff (he says while glancing at the lastest selection of spray cans he bought at lunchtime today)

    Got the front completed (except for the washes, of course). Now it's on to the back. I should have this baby finished this weekend, then it's off to the Cargo Hold!

    Here's my progress on the back so far. This was done freehand as I have not cut out any stencils for the right side of the back of the helmet. This is about 8 hrs. worth of painting...as you can see...it goes pretty slow.

    Oh, yeah...Regarding the use of Miracle Whip as a painting mask...you have to be very careful when removing it, or it can cause the paint that is on top of it to smear across what you have already painted. I received an e-mail today from a boardmember who had this problem. So In my opinion, I would use a liquid mask that is designed specifically for painting. This was just an experimental technique that I was trying and have had a fair amount of success with. Sorry if I mislead anyone.
