Fantasitc work R_Boba . .I've been looking forward to seeing your finished helmet! You've almost convinced me to do a ROTJ myself, but I'l resist the temptation for now, or buy another bucket lol.
It must have been a real labour of love to apply all that weathering. He certainly looks like he's been round the galaxy a few times .. but that used look is what characterizes Star Wars and you have captured that feeling perfectly with your bucket.
I really like your costume display too. Is your suit complete or do you still have a few things to finish?
Great work and a real inspiration.
