    FrankFett's Finished Helmet

    Ok guys, here it is, my first attempt at an ESB semi-accurate Fett helmet. I did all of the painting this weekend, and you guys were right, definetely takes some time and patience! So tell me what you think, but don't be too hard on me! Remember I'm new at this! Here are some progression photos, sorry for the bad quality, only camera I could come up with!

    Thats your 1st atempt at a ESB bucket??? Wow!!! Looks like you've got the knack That looks way better than my first atempt...In fact, I had to do 3 of them before I got one that looked that good. Some advice: You may want to use a scuff pad on it to dull it down a tad more, and maybe do a black wash on it. Lookin good man

    Looks great. I hope my bucket turns out as nice as yours. Post more pics, once you get the visor installed.

    Could've fooled me! That looks awesome. It is a little too shiny, but that's an easy fix. The first pic looks like mine. I can't believe you did this in one weekend, WOW!

    good job, same advice, black wash to dull it, might wanna redo some silver spots after the black wash or misting... or both...

    Very, very nice. I especially like that "grazed, indirect shot" look of the dent!

    Took your guys' advice and black misted it. When I get a decent camera to take photos I will post again, those pictures truly do not do it justice! Thanks for all the helpful critisicm!
