    MSH2 ESB Paint Up

    Since I have acquired my all time favorite Boba helmet sculpt, a MSH2, I've decided to post one last paint up thread. The base colors have been applied using the colors off of my 'airbrushed challenged' list including the new Valspar brand updates. The killstripes are Valspar Gloss Mustard Seed and the visor, mandible, keyslot areas are the Valspar Merlot. I've also just started painting the damage and spent the better part of yesterday and today working on the 'catscratch'.

    Looks great so far! The MSH2 is one of the "larger" buckets, right?
    Even after all the time I've been here, I still get confused with some of the abbreviations. :o

    I've always said to the local guys here, that if I ever had someone paint my own bucket, I would go with AFFO$....so this should be good.

    Love the color change on the mandible...

    Sorry for the delay guys. I've been working day and night (Recently promoted to Dept. Manager at Lowe's (Seasonal Dept.), and this is my departments BUSY season. They don't call it the 'Hundred Days of Hell' for nothing. I'll try to make some progress on it soon.

    I've resurrected this thread from the dead since I've gotten the itch to start painting helmets again. Here's a few more progress pics.

    Technically it is. But after I get all of the scratches painted, I mask them off with liquid mask and put down another layer of the base colors so that it is actually 'on top' of the painted damage.

    Re: MSH2 ESB Paint Up

    Slapped a little more paint on the back of the helmet. Got the 'Fjords of Norway' (As Steve the Swede usmsh2-back-right-2-jpged to call them) finished...and a headache. Does anyone else find themselves clenching their teeth as they paint the back panels on an ESB bucket?msh2-back-both-sides-jpg

    Maybe that's why there are so many dental tools used on the Fett costume!

    That looks really nice! I don't think I have the nerves to paint an accurate ESB helmet myself.
