    Finally got some paint on this puppy..

    Just applied the dome, cheeks, and back colors.
    With some additional "speckling/splatter". I think most people forget this part.. it really adds more depth on the finished product.

    Should get the mandibles and the undercheeks tomorrow, and possibly the kill-stripes... Yes, this is a topical paint job.

    The GMH is a cast of the Pre-Pro #2 and the helmet has some physical damage (or poor repair job) around the dent while the ESB hero is cleaner in that area.

    Topical! Hooray!
    I think topical allows for much greater control of the small shapes of the damage areas.

    Gotta agree with ya Eric.. Topical = "exact scratches" ; Layered = "close scratches"....

    Good looking work! Brave doing a wavy brow too... I'm still unsure as to which I prefer. Wavy and accurate or straight...
    It will look great though complete, I'm sure!

    Isn't there something beautiful about a freshly painted Fett helmet without any damage on it?
