    ok I got basic colours on it.
    takes 24 hours to drie so I had to lay in about a thousand acrobatic postures to get it all on... and then to think that none of these colours are definitive...

    well here it is... also have to straiten the edges a bit and stuf...

    got a good feelin' about this... so far...

    look for bobamaker here on the board, he is a member..
    now...

    this was kind of a pain, but with several washes it's now kind of ok...
    add the killstripes...somehow (yeah I know the TK-409 temps and to spray em on... problem is not decent spray can can be found here...)

    I'll figure something out.

    then after the killstripes it's on to some black, grey and brown misting...

    Just curious, do you mean 'No decent spray cans in general' Or 'No decent spray cans with respect to a certain color you are looking for' The reason I ask, is that you can just use regular 'Orange' for the RotJ kill stripes. It's what I used on this bucket and it turned out nicely.

    added the killstripes shrinking and slightly altering TK-409's temps (thnx Chris )

    and printed them on sticker paper, just put that on, tape of the rest of the helmet and sprayed Tamiya light orange on it and then some red I had laying around... they're brilliant... no... not in the word of being good, but brilliant means Shiny... super shiny...

    but the mist dulled them down

    here it is...

    now on to some washes... and some scratches...
