    First Helmet Paint Job

    Hey All,

    I just put some of the finishing touches on my ESB Fett Helmet so I thought I'd let you guys have a look at it. This is the first Fett helmet I've ever painted, and is actually (after a few years of painting Warhammer and stuff) the very first 1:1 scale anything I've ever painted

    The helmet is a Sgt. Fang Mystery Helmet (Recommended!!!!!). Everything is topically done, and hand painted (no decals). I used about $10 worth of dollar store paint and brushes (this was a budget costume... :P).

    It's 99% done... I am going to rebuild the (now resin) rangefinder out of matboard to take a bit of weight off that side of the helmet, and I'm not extraordinarily happy with some of the weathering... but here it is!

    Thanks for your feedback!

    EDIT: Sorry for the shoddy iPhone photos... every camera battery in the house is dead.

    Awesome paint job, bro! I very much like how you did the weathering on the entire bucket. It's a little different but it looks authentic like that helmet has seen some major action in battle.

    Looks great for just using dollar store paint. Nice work!

    Looks like a bit of a custom take on an ESB but it's a great paint job none-the-less.
