    Dec 24, 2008, 8:39 PM - Bobamaker ESB Completed #1

    Hey guys, I got my bobamaker helmet today. the 4 month wait was well worth it!

    I got it at 2:20 today and I immediately started working on it.

    I laid down the base coats so far, and I just finished with the killstripes. The paints I used are all from RS's paint list. The only paint I couldnt find was Caboose, so I mixed up a normal PS red with PS night black and achieved a similar color.


    Here are some pics.

    Straight out of the box


    Got the POG on there



    Got the Custom Red mix on there



    Masked off for the black




    Got the back done.



    MQ-1


    Got the ear cap and base painted.



    And are you ready for it....


    The killstripes!!!

    Alright so I was painting the entire day yesterday and here we are.

    The dent


    Catscratch



    Left cheek



    Then I got to painting the mandibles




    Added some silver damage to the RF



    Let me know what you think. This isnt done by a longshot, but it is close.


    edit- By the way, all the colors seem to be much brighter. They are more subtle in fact.

    Hey buddy, not sure what you mean by painting uses. I think you are asking what paints I used. I used all the paints from Rogue Studios list of pollyscale paints.

    Here is the link to the thread.

    Thanks. About 9 ours is all this has taken me so far. I got some more work done on it today. The back is not even close to being halfway finished.

    Thanks. It is'nt as good as anything SJ has painted, but it is my first ESB so I think it is looking alright. Does anyone recomend a good out of the bottle chrome, or silver paint? I do not like the testors silver at all, it goes on unevenly and just doesnt look too good.

    I like the video showing your helmet from all sides.

    And I like the way you painted up your gauntlets! Great skills you have there!

    I guess you use an airbrush, aren´t you?

    Thanks alot guys. Your kind comments keeps me going.

    Manuel, I use an airbrush to get the main colors down and go topical.


    Here are a few pics in my car.







    Let me tell you guys that this helmet fits great even with the MQ-1. My head is pretty big, and it really FITS like bobas helmet should. It is also perfect for my body type, since I am not 6 feet tall.

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks for the comments guys. This is my first ESB helmet so it is alot of fun to work with. I might post a tutorial for the RF led assembly in the future, but it is pretty complicated and you can just buy the board from a member here.
