this will be my first paintjob on a ESB boba and I will go the layered technique.
I have recently seen Terminal Fettlers thread and I was very impressed.
Now Iīll go the same way to get my bucket finished.
First steps have been working out fine so far. I hope you all will enjoy the progress as I plan to take down pics of all steps.
Any comments and tips are welcome!
Step 01: Primed helmet with light grey and using masking fluid to set off those little grey parts inside the silver. I tinted the masking fluid blue to better see what is done.
Step 02: The silver is sprayed on.
Step 03: The masking fluid has been peeled off to show the small light grey scratches.
Not much to see until now, but tomorrow Iīll put on the stencils for the silver scratches step by step.
@Terminal Fettler: I would especially appreciate some comments from you, as you have done such an incedible layered paintjob.
More to come very soon.
PS: BTW I use RAL Colors, european used Paints for cars. I hope they will work out fine in color, trying to get as close to the originals as possible. Weathering the helmet will do a lot to the colors afterwards ...
