    Mojo's Albino project

    Hiya boys and girls...
    I'm after some advice from all comers? new and old....
    I've decided to transform my current lid into the Albino Prepro helmet and I'm torn between cannon or a twist on cannon?

    O.k here it is...
    At this moment in time I have it primed with white primer (obviously) to get the feel etc...
    Now the cannon shows it to have white ears (apart) from the 'V' section section that meets on the right ear? what I'm thinking is this, to paint the ears completely white 'but' with some weathering to reveal silver/chrome beneath? not too dissimilar to ESB.
    Now the interesting part? I'd like to give the lid the ESB dent damage? I don't want to reveal any greys... just to show the dent and trailing scratch... I mean that kind of head shot must leave some sort of damage?

    Pics...

    You won't believe how much wet-sanding I did! I'm still undecided on cannon vs my idea?

    Hey Gav,

    Wow mate that looks nice. Just a little more sanding and you are there buddy. As for the weathering, i would weather the dent and leave the rest in perfect high gloss. Just the silver around the dent would look really really good.

    can't wait to see this finished, its going to look awsome

    Re: Mojo's Albino project

    I'd also recommend go canon! I'd be very interested to see how this project turns out ... I don't see it done very often.

    Re: Mojo's Albino project

    Thanks guys... Looks like the general consensus is erm.... cannon

    As stated I've only the base coat down and have noticed a couple of small areas that I need to wetsand further?
    This has been a great lid to work with tho as the cast was/is very crisp indeed... cheers TF
    Now cannon does or does not have the circuit board in the rear? i have a couple that are already white... saves on some painting there!

    From all the fan made replicas ive seen done on this and in the action figure book, the ears are silver not white, it looks much better with silver ears in my opinion, it also has the painted arrows too,

    It's 'not' quite finished yet Paul...
    It's only in the primer phase..a couple of wet sands then I'm getting the paint that we have discussed.. cheers

    Cheers bro... means allot!
    More to come, been working on my V3 today..
    Also found (advised) on a great white paint for the final coats!

    Re: Mojo's Albino project

    What paint are you going with Gav? With all the trooper helmets Ive painted over the years I've found that Halford's appliance gloss white is a great option, really excited to see this project underway love the white pre pro fett
