    Jul 18, 2005, 2:32 PM - FrankFett's Finished Helmet #1

    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!

    (P.S. the lighting made some of the silver really shine!)

    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!

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