Trying to meet my 5 post ''new member'' requirement, so I thought I'd post my first ESB Helmet build.
I'm a long time prop builder/collector, but this is my first attempt at the Boba Fett ESB Helmet.
Decided to start off with the ESB Hero Version... the paint job, to me, is a little more appealing. I plan on following up this build with both ROTJ and SE version Helmets.
Starting off with this '95 Don Post I found on eBay.
I thought this one had a decent enough profile... not too badly ''flattened'', as the later Don Post helmets seem to be. A bit smaller than other versions (fettpride, bobamaker, etc.), but that was to be expected.
The seller claimed only minimal damage to the visor... Well, I need to remove and replace the visor anyway, so no problem. I took a chance and went ahead and bought it.
The Helmet arrived and appeared to be in good condition. I think I can work with this.
