    Bobamaker ROTJ Paintjob

    Hi Guys,
    this is my second helmet-paintjob ever - started with a bobamaker helmet:
    First a layer of silver (rattlecan)


    masked the lower cheeks with Humbrol Maskol and painted dark grey

    masked again and painted the cheeks green (airbrush)


    Primed the backpanel dark grey (rattlecan)

    Then painted the backpanels with camo dark green (airbrush)




    Sorry for the bad quality of the pics....hand trembling hands
    and the rest (airbrush)






    The change from the upper to the lower cheeks could be better, but i´ll try to fix that the next days...

    The colours i used: Modelmaster Panzer olive green (lower cheeks and dome), dark camo green (back), PRR Brunswick Green (upper Cheeks), Box Car Red (Visor)
    Silver and dark grey are acrylic Rattlecan colours...
    Gonna continue the next days...pics will follow..

    Feedback welcome-Thanks guys...

    Almost finished, photographed with flashlights, so the upper cheeks seem black, but they´re painted brunswick green...

    ..and Pre-Pro #1, Pre-Pro #2, Pre-Pro #3. The Sandy had it (and the ROTJ too) but lost it on the ESB promotional tours.

    Wow. You did great! About to order my first Fettpride premium helmet. Hope mine comes out nearly this good! Thought it was too much red on the mandibles at first, but when all said and done it came out splendid.
