Sep 16, 2002, 3:07 AM - Journeymanprotector's Second Helmet
*edit: It's not entirely finished but this is what it will look like in the end. I may give it a dullcoat to keep the shine down a little. If anything was wrong with my first suit it's that it was too shiny. The helmet's not entirely accurate but I like to think of the suit as a post-rotj suit, so who knows what it looks like Translation: you can't say anything! lol. So, here she is.

Just a few shots of my new wip Fett helmet. She's a 97, but actually I'm very impressed with the shape and quality. Surprising I know...
It's nothing like Motorfish's or that showoff Fettpride's work, but it's all a poor old farmboy like me can do lol...
The base is a 1933 Sage from Rustoleum.
The Grey is acrylic 'Graphite' from Americana
The Rust is acrylic 'Russet' from Americana
The weathering was actually all done with an x-acto blade, revealing different layers. I'm not done, I do plan to get in there with some pewter or lead or something.
Thanks for looking,

Looking good! The grey looks kinda blue though.
Nice weathering.You're right though the shape isn't bad for a '97

Nice piece you got there. Your "final" is going to be a fiberglass?
