    What were you using to add the Humbrol Maskol? The details are so fine on some of the damage.

    The Maskol was applied with a silicone brush, but the fine scratches through to silver were scratched in with a self propelling pencil nib. This includes a lot of the fine edge detail on the major silver damage...

    Ah right, Thanks for the info. I am trying to get my head round all of this layering as I am going to be painting a ROTJ helmet in the next couple of months. This is the hardest way as far as I can see but it turns out the best. Thing is tho am a noob at painting!

    I too have been tooling away.... there are a TON of layers. Have you tried scratching away paint for effect?
