    Yea it sure does...yep its H#78 straght up.

    Thanks man..its a technique i used for the shoulders and knees once before and worked out well, so i figured id give it a shot. Yea im gonna do the masking before hand but not too much..the blue tape tends to stick too well if left on too long and i dont wanna rip any paint off

    You made it look pretty easy to be your first one . Looking good Lou. You'll master this in a few more helmets man. You have the knack now you'll fine tune it. Can't wait to see the mandibles...

    Ok so here she is almost done. Just need to add the ears (got them from Lucksy31, pre painted by SuperJedi..thanks Scott!) and do final weathering...im going for the ESB Hero look NOT the SE look.

    I had to do a bunch of touching up with the brush. the stencils just didnt line up properly with my helmet build so i had to fudge alot of it to get it to work. Overall, i think it came out pretty good

    Thanks Man! It took ALOT of tweaking to get it to look as it does now. Some of the damage on the dome on one side towards the back doesnt line up with the trim damage...actually all the rear dome damage should be shifted to the right...but its fine, i know for next time I also extended the visor ends a little bit and trimmed down one side of the helmet so now the ears fit perfect and it has more of a curve if you look at the helmet directly from the side.

    I also put the borden in and i put it a tad too low, (ugh!)but its not the end of the world. Overall, im happy with it and will troop it for sure!

    I'll have a pic up tomorrow with the ears and all that on. Im making a rangefinder now...but thinking of maybe just buying one cuz i cant do the perspex block. I can do it in resin if i need too in a pinch, but id rather have the correct looking block.

    Re: DVH ESB paintup of DVH scratch build helmet casting

    Thanks so much guys! This is the first time im seeing one of my scrtach builds actually painted as Fett. Although alot of it was an uphill battle, the "fear of the unknown" when it comes to painting a helmet has been lifted lol. Looking forward to doing another and improving on it!

    I have to thank WOF for the base templates i used and RafalFett for the painting templates. without those two fellas i would never have been able to accomplish this. Also thanks to Terminal Fettler, Jayvee and the other painters that gave me some tips and tricks, and Lucksy31 for the FP GMH ears painted by SuperJedi!
