    Nov 23, 2010, 1:23 PM - FP Budget Repaint by F4R (for Booboo Fett) ROTJ style #1

    OK so Im going to document the repainting of Terrys helmet here...
    Terry has an amazing Fett as most probably already know...and he had gotten this helmet painted last year sometime and looking at it along with the rest of his gear I couldnt see letting him walk around FULL ROTJ with the helmet in the condition it was in...look at the pics and see for yourself...the red was off the kill stripes were off the back of the helmet was off and the damage while close was all topically applied with what seems to be paint marker...I bugged my buddy Terry for a few days and showed him what my MS3 looks like and he agreed he was wanting to get it repainted...so he shipped it over to me and Ive started last night and its about ready to be silver today...
    Its a Fettpride Budget helmet so the ears are apart of the helmet they wont be coming off lol





    Visor out


    Paint coming off


    Paint is gone...


    Heres what is should look like when done or close to it at least...

    Cool. So where do you actually do your paintings? is that a garage or a bedroom?

    Dont know if it was terry or not but someone used a coat hanger to hold the bottom of the visor close to the helmet if you look in the first pic u can see it...It works, but you cant remove the visor easily

    Hey 4Real, I can't remember but does yours have all the little overspray and topical weathering on it, too?
    My memories from CV are all jumbled up.

    Will you put it on BooBoos?
