Did you just sand all the paint of or what?
This seriously started out as a Hasbro Fett helmet? Wow!
Yeah i sanded the whole dome andd took of the kill stripes and silver battle damage as you can see the colour of the dome was green to start, and then gave the out side a qwick spray with flat white , unfortinantly my camera was not working when i began this prodject so i could not document the first steps.
So you've narrowed the horizontal eye part to give it the right squint. What else did you cut or trim?
I remade every peice that you see, the dome is the only original peice i trimed the back to get the right hight and length, the whole mandibles the side burns even cut out the key slot and the surounding frame, im making the ears and range finder stork at the moment and filling the gaps with epoxy ill add some pics to night

Here are all the parts that i hav removed from the original and then replaced If you havent seen the hasbro B.F in person you might not relise how over sized the ears and the key slots are and the obvious massive vizor the small lower cheaks and the back plate half an inch to long so out of the $95 That the lid cost me im only using about $25 worth the rest is going in the bin.
Any way im starting to paint to day still cant deside witch version to do but am leaning towards ESB.
Ok ive pulled the right ear of done a whole lot of work all over this , Iv e added the flat peices for were the ears are to bee placed iveconter sunk stong magnets in all the flat peices and the earss and the range finder atachstalk housing then filled over them all so it will all hold together nicly with out glueing or skrewing them in placeIalso have put a few hours of work in redoing the dent. nxt another sand and 1 more coat of primer then to a=start painting i have desided to go for the pre pro style the one were he has the yellow and brick red gaunts.
I cant wait to paint this up.
Can any one help me out , I need to find some refrence pics onthe pre pro helmet the one wth the yellow gauntlets ive been looking and no luck.

It is a link ;-)
you paid $95 for the hasbro helmet? please say you are kidding. Target has these for 30 bucks!
he is in the land of Oz so things are expensive there...............the price you pay for being that far away from everyone else.
Not the targets in Australia! and i also paid that for the hasbro clone trooper , I know its a rip, you can getm on ebay around the $30 mark as well.
I am an impulse buyer if i see it and have the money in my poket any thing fett il buy

Does any one know if there are refrence shots of the sandy helmet if been goyng through the gallery and im not having any luck,
Check under "".
There's 2 pics on page 5 of the "Pre-Pro3" page.
There are a few more floating around also. One is from a promo shoot and two or three more of it all busted up sitting on a dusty shelf in the LFL Archives with a couple others.
BTW, I've always had a softspot for the Sandy even with all of it's wicked fuggliness.
Thanks mate i did find them it would be hard tomake an acurate paint job frm those pics, I not 100% on witch way to go but i may even do the good old E,S,B .
its to hard to decide. grrrrrr so many posibilities
Right, it's hard to see where the actual paintjob ends and the wear and tear begins. It's definately the black sheep, odd man out of the original six helmets.
Can any one tell me the name of the krylon colors that is for most used on the real rotj helmet color dome and cheeks
