    Aug 18, 2013, 5:45 PM - ESB Helmet paint up for Brandontrueblue #1

    Hey boys and girls it has been a long time since I had a paint up thread on here but I am back at it. brandontrueblue contacted me to paint his ASOK CC helmet for him so what follows is the paint thread for that. I will preface it with the fact the pictures are likely to not be great at first because my wife has manged to misplace our digital camera for the time being so until I find it I am stuck using my cell phone. Sorry.

    So here we go. This first update will have a bunch of stuff because it encompasses several days worth of work.

    First up is the primer coat layer. I don't know why but I always love the look of Fett helmets in primer. It just looks so clean and neat.





    Next I did the dome and Lower cheeks.


    Then the back was painted Concrete and stencils were drawn, I switched after doing the left side of the back in black carbon stencils to a white as it was much eaiser to see.



    This shows the liquid masking laid down




    The helmet also has the back green painted and the red done but I forgot to take photos of those two stages before leaving this morning for work.

    Ok so big update here as I have been hard at work just not updating this thread.

    All the base colors done:



    Some of the silver started on the dome:

    Lower cheeks, I didn't take pics of them with just the silver done so I skipped a step. Also the Borden needs to be detailed.



    Back and side dome with the grey added:




    Next up will be the grey done around the front where the "cat scratch" is and then the dent and kill stripe area will get started.

    Since Brandon is scheduled to get his helmet today I am going to post up the finished pics of his helmet. The RF is not attached as he is going to be installing a servo so that is why it is missing for the pics and the ear cap is just taped on.

    I like it, and I always appreciate the paint smears on the killstripes. Attention to details.
