    My ESB Helmet... So Far. It's a love/hate thing...

    Here are some updated pics of my helmet progress. So far, I don't know if I love it, or hate it! I still have a lot to do, but at least so far it looks like Fett.

    I'm looking for input on this. Please let me know your honest opinions....Thx!

    Nice ...it's coming out great...
    One Suggestion....the Gray Scrathes on the Helmet (green) are MUCH darker than the Scrathes on the Mandibles (Red).....or maybe it's the flash...either way looks sweet bro.

    Thanks Alex! (Steve and FPA too)

    I noticed the gray scratches on the helmet and the mandibles. I used the same color for both, as per Lee's color guide. I'm not sure now if he used 2 differant shades of gray.
    Maybe I should use the reefer gray for the dome scratches?

    That looks great! So many helmets being painted at one time and it makes the process alot more enjoyable seeing the progress by those who have been posting lately.

    Keep posting pics please

    Thanks Evan! I completely missed the SP Lark gray! Thats why it looks off a bit. I have the color, so I will correct it.

    i don't know if you can hear this but it's look fine and i echo Spidey's comments on the difference of gray tone between mandible scratches and bucket scratches.

    that first part is a joke because the "ears" are off the helmet.

    sorry i'm lame
