So I'm moving up in the world. Finally got my Helmet from my brother. Who so kindly fabricated it for me out of aluminum. See http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f20/b...t-build-52686/ .
I have now gotten around to painting it. Hope you guys like it. I approached this paint job from the perspective that this is an actual metal helmet. All of the damage and weathering is from paint removal not paint added. It gives it a really nice feel.
Since I am in the middle of a budget Fett build I am only using what I have on hand currently. Being a former miniatures painter I have tons of different kinds of paint and tools at my disposal. One of which I did not have was Liquid Masking Fluid. I opted for toothpaste. I used this for my armor damage as well and man does it work. If you are tight on cash its the way to go.
I will be photo bombing this thread so it will seem a bit jumbled I think.
The earpieces and range finder are full pvc scratch builds and I am not super happy with them. They are only temporarily attached and will be replaced with some nice ones some day.
The Job took me about 6 hours.
