Early last week, I decided to revive my helmet project by painting the dome and lower cheeks. I also painted the base color (concrete) on the back quarter, as I intend to do a layering style on that section.
DarthMiller, evan4217, BobaFit and I spent Sunday afternoon in Spidey-Fett's garage. We were able to paint a few more pieces. Many thanks to Spidey-Fett for the help with his weathering techniques!
I also worked on the range finder by tapping screw holes into the top of the stalk and securing the pieces with size 3 metric screws. I have one of TDH member Bobo's LED kits which fits entirely in the RF topper (no need for wiring down to the helmet), which I'll install later.
A few more pics of the progress...
The flash really does change the look of the colors, doesn't it?
I hope to paint the armor, left ear and upper cheeks in the next week or so, so I can start weathering.
