    Massive thanks to whoever did the stencils I used, the welsh warrior for help and advise, and everyone else for tips ive picked up through reading the posts. Really is a smart and helpful community.

    As someone who is working on his first ESB paint job I think you did good work.

    Good spot Lazarus, yeah its the RS prop masters bought and started this at the end of 2013, put it to the back burner after doing all the main airbrushing and just finished all the niggly little things recently. The Inside liner is off the guy on Ebay who sells them from Argentina, I few little alterations and it really sets off the interior also making it a really snug comfortable fit. Any ideas if this is 501st quality? Cheers

    Not 100% happy with the back panels but they were the beginning and the first time Id ever used an airbrush or did anything like this. The rest became much easier as the experience grew. learnt a lot through the process which will help me on my next one.

    impressive! looks great bro! definitely a 501st candidate. you'd only want to replace the green visor with a smoke colored visor if you wanted level 2 certification but i think you'd be ok for basic approval.

    Great job on this for a first helmet paint job. I hope mine is half as good when I get to it.

    not to high jack your thread but............ @JedIinTraining........look up Welsh warrior on youtube. He does a full series from start to finish on a layered paint job.

    Welsh warriors for the win. I agree 100%. His video series along with a few tdh guides are what got me through as well.
