    Wow, looking really great!
    I'm still fascinated by the waterslide decals you made. Had you considered trying to print
    them in color? At least the gray portions, or would that be too fiddly to mess with.

    Re: ESB Paintup for anakin1322

    I did an experiment with doing them in color. The only problem was that you had to print them on white decal paper which is a tad bit thicker than the clear and you had to cut out EVERY nook and cranny of negative space or you would have white decal paper showing. With the clear you can leave the negative spaces empty and the paint of the helmet shows through. Plus the black stencil gives you a good shadow to paint over without any of the helmets base colors bleeding through...If that makes any sense.

    Finished up the greys on the mandibles this evening. Getting a little bleary eyed, so I'll start on the maroon scratches tomorrow. It's starting to look like a Fett helmet...

    Right Mandible and Brow Strip detail with PRR Maroon applied..."IT'S A TOTAL CHAOTIC MESS!!!!" Just like it's supposed to be. I love this side of the ESB Helmet with the paint almost completely stripped from the mandible and brow. Fett must lead with the right side of his face when he fights!

    Here's the right mandible and brow detail, plus a few shots of the back as I get started on that...

    Re: ESB Paintup for anakin1322

    Man, this is gonna be an amazing helmet!

    On the left mandible (the wearer's left), that little beige teardrop. . . did you put that on there
    to form the outline of the contrasting red mark?

    Superjedi- Yeah, that teardrop is actually more red than beige. The lighting in my room does a funky number on the colors. But, I'm gonna drop another red in the middle of it.

    Oh OK, I can kind of see it now.
    I usually have a mother of a time getting that hair thin outline around that mark!

    She's done, Jeff. I'm installing the visor right now and boxing her up. She will ship out first thing in the morning.
