    mystery helmet re-paint COMPLETE! update 6/11

    Hey all, here are a few pics of my recently re-painted mystery helmet. The only thing I have left to do is add padding on the inside to make it wearable. I'm still up in the air about whether I want to mist it with black and grey to dirty it up (didn't boba ever clean his stuff?) Also included in the photo album is my Jango helmet which started it's life as a fiberglass DP 95 recast.

    Looks very good, Will you be blackening in the screen on the key holes?
    Cheers,

    Re: mystery helmet re-paint, what do ya think?

    The dome and the lower cheeks were painted with the testors panzer olivegrun 1943 . The upper cheeks are floquil weathered black. The back of the helmet is a custom mix of the olivegrun and testors sea blue. The visor area red was also custom mixed, but I doubt I'd be able to replicate it. Left ear is rustoleum satin sage (the old standby before Lee gave us the panzer olivegrun). And the right ear and back scratches are testors panzer dunkelgelb 1943. I'm thinking of painting that screen material in the back with my red visor concoction.

    I like the masking techinique myself. Once you get those details done it's going to look sweet. Keep us posted.

    Hope you don't mind me hi-jacking the thread, but I figured I'd save the mods the trouble of merging. Here's a link to pics of my mystery helmet:

    It looks great!! I would weather it some more by paint misting or chalk dust, it is toooo clean.

    Looks good other wise.

    I have to say to both of you...GREAT JOB! I mean, for being just novices...it's a great job! I love them, and you already started with the first most important piece of equipment of all. Wait until you get to the Jet Pack! :evil
