    When that lid is finished I doubt very much that anyone would suspect it was cardboard without inspecting it very closely. Stunning.

    That is amazing. I can't believe you made a hollow rf stalk out of cardboard

    You know, something just occurred to me (as random things always do when I'm up at 2 or later in the morning screwing around on my comp)...Boba must go through a LOT of helmet visors. I mean, you see all the damage and scuffing to his helmet, especially the red trim...

    Great work to man.

    The pics pretty much say it all. Both layered as well as topical techniques have been used. Many thanks and kudos to Count Dookie for the paint schemes!! :thumbup

    I ain´t in the 10%, but thanks dude!

    More pics:


    Here I added the white label on the left ear. Since I am using cardboard type materials mostly, I figured that the easiest way to get the label onto the ear was the following. I printed out the label (Count D template!) on plain white paper (cardboard family!) and cut it out with a pair of scisors and glued it onto the ear. And it worked pretty well! Also added the light gray area's on the ear:



    And some of the dark gray details too:









    Better visible without camera flash:



    On top some Caboose (actually my own mix of reds and greens):






    *Phew*... still got a looooong way to go.
    The paint job is far from being movie (or AoSW) acurate but hey, who's lookin'!?

    To be continued... 8)

    I have not checked this thread in awhile, but glad I cam back. Wow!! I cannot believe its cardboard. Not only the helmet itself, but especially the ears, rf, etc. This thing is simply fantastic

    This all might just be photoshopped.... LOL
    Dankjewel gast!


    On with the paint pics!

    I applied some more dark gray to the mandibles (no camera flash):



    Camera flash set to on:



    Also dark gray on the lower cheeks:






    And finally, some dayligt shots! But even now the colours look different from the real deal (in-person):






    I put the lid on a self made standard, so it's free floating now:



    More gray...
    When that's about done, I will put on the PPR Maroon.



    Did some work on the "cat-scratch"; after this dries I will put more detail in it:



    And on the left side added the silver damage between the kill stripes:






    Next up should be some serious work on the back section:




    More to come.... Stay tuned! 8)

    Re: First post, first WOF bukcet build - cardboard!

    Wow... I mean... just wow... I just posted the beginning of my bucket and now I want to abandon it in order to follow in your cardboard making footsteps... I kneel at your craft making feet sir, for you are a master.

    What was it you said you used, polypaste or some such for the filling out process?

    A master I am not (yet ), for there is still much to learn. But don't let this ol' thread be a threat to your own skills. Just go ahead and do that bucket man! Scratch buckets are always fun to do and see. Good luck dude!

    Thanks and I would be honoured if you incorporated my ideas into your creation! Let's see what you can do bro!

    On with the show....

    A few pics only. Some minor detail added to the gray and silver scratches on the dome:









    And a small deviation from my project... just a short one, really

    As I was jogging (during my lunch break) along a river close to where I work, I saw something which reminded me of a certain part of the Fett cap:



    In close-up:



    Just thought it was sort of freaky. Even the colour surrounding the lid was POG-ish.

    Anyways, to top off this session, I masked the back part of the helmet with the good old Winsor & Newton fluid.




    Back soon!8)

    Latest update:

    After masking the back I put on the greenish blue paint which resulted in this:



    Then all I had to do was wait for a couple of minutes and peel off the mask:







    So now the bucket looks like this in 360 view:




    Up next: details on the back section!
