    Jun 23, 2007, 11:36 AM - My ESB...Almost there!! #1

    Well here it is so far..LMK what you think, i will update the pics as i get it finished.

    I know its not the best, but its my 1st paint job..lol.

    I still have a lot more painting to do, I STILL have to cut and add the T-visor and i still have to dirty it up...

    I'll most likley be giving it to my bro cause i'm not happy with it.. I'll buy another one and start on an new ESB. (movie accurate..i hope)

    And here is the link to my original thread with the mods I did to it! http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=19598


    On to the pics....


    i did a new mod to my 2 piece RF ear..i'll post it once i get my camera back.

    I think you have done some really nice work, especially for a first time paint job, I hope that I can do as well.

    It's been a while...

    Just have to paint the ears, add window on RF, MQ board in back and weather a bit more, then my brother gets this helmet...he's gonna buy me the new FP helmet, once it becomes available.

    LMK what you think.. be nice it's my first paint job.

    *EDIT
    i still have to add the thumb print, crack and putty on mandible, and paint on ear "decals" as well.

    Thx guys...

    Well, all those year coloring Starwars coloring books as a kid helped.

    it's "Okay", but I decided I wanted to do a "movie' damaged helmet after I added damage from display Ref pictures. 20+ yrs of damage looks cool but I want to try a more cannon look.

    It's good practice though..

    Well, just when i thought i was almost done...

    I wasn't too happy with the shape of resin ear cap that came w/the helmet.

    so I decided to make a new one. done free hand and not using WOF plans..I like a challenge.


    Almost there!

    Eleven pieces if plastic and putty later...

    That paint job looks fantastic. You handled the scratches really well. nice job on the ear cap rebuild, too.
