    Jul 14, 2005, 1:07 AM - ESB Helmet COMPLETED #1

    **** UPDATE JULY 22nd **** PICTURES ADDED BELOW

    Well I'm finally done to the point where I'm happy and can quit messing around with details. Everytime I do one of these babies I swear I'll never do it again... then of course I have to try to better myself. Its not Fett Pride good but I'm content and infact the helmet and it's colours look much better in real life then in the pics. Oh yeah and check out the interior boys and girls

    Great work as always, hard to believe you're cranking it out so fast!
    I can't really tell from the photos, but what is it about the earpieces that is different then usual?

    The Rf earcap was remade with a more proportional triangle shaped bottom, hard to tell from the pic I used. Also I have used a three piece earcap design that is bolted to the helmet. The outer earcap section uses countersunk magnets for accessability. The left side earcap has been reshaped and lengthend.

    Very nice job!!!
    I have a question for you..... How do you paint on the tiny little thin scratches ? I have tried a needle and they came out so-so. Yours are awesome!! Any help would be great.

    Some of the scratches are applied with a liner brush but most are scratched in with a needle. Scratch lightly to bring out the silver paint or scratch hard to get down to the base color.

    Thanks Alex, the helmet is just a regular MS bucket. I ground off the earcap assembly and bolted in a three piece earcap.

    J,
    So with the ear caps, in a word...why? I'm sitting here studying my own M_S1 (still in kit form), the earcaps, and all my reference material. I can understand your desire for a three-piece right ear, but what's up with the reshaping and lengthening? Maybe I'm not seein' it, but it looks darn close to me, both in the pics and right in my hands. I've even broken out a ruler and I'm stumped.

    ...looks great! Raising the bar again, huh? :thumbup

    UPDATE *** JULY 18th ***

    Well I never had a chance to get any work done on the weekend but I had a few hours today. Today was both positive and negative. I made some pretty huge errors today and I've had to apply some fresh POG in places and I'll have to redo the weathering in many places . There was a major catastrophy with one of my paints. Anyways at this point the visor is in as well the MQ-1 and the RF post and 3 piece RF. The color is a bit wonky in some of the shots but enjoy and more to come in the next few days after I'm totally done weathering and installing the interior.
