    another rotj helmet *UPDATED* better pics

    yay for ambition. the other night i finally got some and started rocking out with the spray cans using AFFO$. it's taken me about 8 months to get past the initial coat of aluminum after cleaning up my sarge's helmet. i used the toothpaste technique, and i've got to say, once you get it on go and paint right over it. don't let that stuff get dry, it's a pain in the *** to take off. so enough about that, lets get on with some pictures. (i know they're not great pics, but i was using the only digital camera i had access to at the time; my laptops webcam. but i think they'll be good enough to give everyone an idea of how it's looking.)









    so, um.... what do you guys think? i know the killstripes are missing, because i somehow managed to lose the vinyl stripes i got a few weeks back, but i'm going to be ordering another set if the first one doesn't show up in the next couple days.

    UPDATE: i found the killstripes. they were in my backpack... d'oh!

    Looking good! Any chance of getting pics in more natural lighting so we can see the colors better?

    Re: another rotj helmet

    i dragged my feet for so long on this, then i finally just did it. now i'm itching to paint another one. so it's a good thing i've got some friends with a litle boy that wants to be boba fett for haloween. i'm going to be diging out my old rubies helmet for the cause.
