Discussion on ESB Paintjob within the Boba Fett Helmet forum, part of the Star Wars Original Trilogy Bounty Hunters category; Hey friends this my last project, I hope you like
man that looks great so far. I would try to get some clearer lines between the different colors as I see it where the black and the red on the mandibles meet.
I like the subtle darker weathering on the helmet!
I guess there should be some more grey on the mandibles ...
good job bro!
Thanks for your comment bro.I will try it.Keep it cool.
Looking pretty good so far! Question: what red are you using? Or I guess I should say what color list are you using? The red looks very bright, but that could be a trick of the camera.
p.s. Ankara-Turkey? Too cool! we really are quite the global community!
As for the color (red) Bushmaster, try some steelwool #000 and rub on it. It takes out the shinyness and makes the red come out slightly darker.

That paint job looks awesome!
I may have missed it but whats a good way to paint on the kill stripes and what color were they in ROTJ. Thanks.
I used masking tape.Its best way to do it.And the color is humbrol 82.Thanks buddy!!!
Helmet is almost finished.But i need a visor.I found some t-visors on ebay but i dont know which size is fits to this helmet?
You've done an incredible job on it. The weathering you've done is beautiful. Can't wait to see it completely finished.
wow, i love it. weathering looks fantastic. i dont know if its the t visor, the mirror, or camera angle, but the mandibles look a bit wider than it should be, as if the t visor is pushing on it out. but other than that, looks very nice
oh and what helmet is it by the way?
Its about t-visor its a little big.Im not glued it yet, this is only a try.I need to cut it.
And i dont know what is this helmet.I was bought it from ebay.
Ohhh me want..
Hi guys, does anybody has the PMS colors for the ESB helmet?
