    No wonder the colors are hard to match. The upper cheeks look different on four of those helmets.

    So, if one wanted to paint an accurate replica of the ESB hero helmet would they go off the AOSW helmet? or........?

    Go off the AOSW helmet in conjunction with ESB film stils. There are a couple reasons for this:

    1) Remember there is additional weathering on the AOSW helmet. Whether this is a result of touch-ups done after filming or due to paint chipping away while in storage, the AOSW helmet has additional marks that do not appear in ESB. The additional areas are , for the most part, quite noticeable. But you definitely wouldn't want to include these areas on an ESB helmet-- ROTJ SE helmet, yes.

    2) To paraphrase a very talented painter from the board, time, dust, and LFL "archiving" can certainly take its toll on the helmet-- not to mention the helmet is 20 plus years old. So, having the stills to check against the AOSW helmets will help you determine the integrity of the colors/weathering of the AOSW/ESB helmet.
