    Sep 15, 2008, 10:07 AM - My Latest ROTJ Special Ed Bucket #1

    Hey guys. I figured that since I've been working on this project for about a month off and on I should probably start a progress thread.

    Here's my latest and hopefully LAST ESB/Special Ed bucket that I paint. They look great but they are a pain in the rear to do.

    I'm going completely layered with this paint job and using masking fluid to help with that. Also, I'm using a combination of rattlecan colors found in a couple of threads here as well as some of the Pollyscale/Testors bottles.

    Here's the first step. Silver/Aluminum paint with the damage masked off:

    I made some major progress over the past week painting up the back, top and lower cheeks. I still need to go back in and add the detailed bits to the top and lower cheeks as well as some weathering... then it's on to the kill stripes and ear pieces.

    Here's the link to the album where you can see all the progress photos and layers:

    I darkened the gray around the scratches and began in with the heavy weathering in and around the dent and the kill stripes. This thing is really starting to pop now!
