    May 3, 2006, 12:51 PM - My helmet WIP !!! #1

    Today I recieved the helmet from Bobamaker.



    I will start working on the helmet coming weekend. I hope it doesn´t take to long to finish it. I plan to use the padding of a old biker helmet for the inside. The Rangefinder will be moveable, but not electical yet. ( I can update that anytime later ) A voicechanger will be added too, as soon as I find a good sounding one over here.

    Altough I am doing a all ROTJ suit, I will do a ESB paintjob on the helmet, its just more appealing to me

    If you get it within a week how long total did you have to wait after ordering? Just curious for a roundabout timeline so that I will know when to order. Thanks in advance!!!

    Well, I couldn´t wait until weekend and already started painting the first parts of the helmet.
    Since I suck with the airbrush, I have to use the hand method. The mentioned colors are not available over here so I have to improvise and mix my own colors.
    So far, I applied the first coat of burgundy red to the visor, trim, keyholes and circuit board, ( its the same color as I used on the gauntlets ), "off-black" to the cheeks, some leave-green to the left ear and cinnamon brown to the RF-ear. At last I also covered the RFstalk with some carbumper chrome.
    Even if I will have to do a second coat, it looks pretty good already.
    Pics comes next time.

    Finished first coating the helmet today. As mentioned above, the first coat looks crappy. The second one brings out the color perfectly, as can be seen with the rest of my currrently finished armor or as you see with the already second coated RF ear and circuit board

    Finished everything with basic color. Now the fun of weathering can begin

    Your making great progress on your bucket, looks great so far. With all the scars and dirt on there it will look great im sure, the BM is a wonderful helmet.

    Can you possibly upload some detailed pics of the BM deluxe RF as im interested in buying one.

    Keep us updated on your progress too.

    Here some requested pics of DAZ´s Deluxe RF. Altough he did a great paintjob on it, I will repaint it with my own colors and to match it with my own style of chipping.

    that bucket is looking really good man, great job so far.

    My progress of today :

    I repainted and weather the RF, weathered the RFstalk, completly finished the top of the RF ear and started weatering on the left cheek

  25. May 7, 2006, 11:39 AM - Re: My helmet WIP !!! #25

    wow . .at the rate you going this bucket will be finished in no time.

    The weathering looks super so far and I love the RF ear cap. Is the black&white U decal painted on? It looks really nice.

    Keep up the good work .. oh and thanks for the pic of the rangefinder, I think I might order a esb one :-)
