    I custom sized the templates with much trial and error, skewing, and such to get the Raf templates to fit the panels perfectly. I am going for a pretty much dead-on look for the FPH2. I'm allowing myself a little leeway on the Budget bucket though.

    Necronaut's Necro-thread back from the dead!



    My ASOK Budget (the one I was doing as an AOSW paint job) got a really bad warp and crack in the middle of both cheeks from the steel bracing bar I epoxied. Funny thing is that I epoxied it in to prevent the cheeks from warping in or cracking!?

    Wow! Your paint job looks great and almost all those small details are in the right place and shape. There are 2 areas that have missing details:

    Thanks for pointing those out! I did see that I missed them once I uncrossed my poor eyes.

    Excellent! That right rear panel is a killer.

    Done the panels!



    This is what I think is an old Budget Fett helmet, possibly made by ASOK years ago. Its got a cold cast finish. It takes all of the AOSW ESB helmet scratches really well! I'll do the rust stains and ink stains on the helmet as finishing for the helmet once its got all its paint.


    My FPH2 helmet. I'm going for the screen used ESB look.

    Next, I'm going to follow Ponte's layered paint-up recipe for the rest of the helmet. I'll be airbrushing the rest of the helmet in Model Master Acryl LichtBrau RLM 76, to create the base gray. After that, lots of printing and modifying existing Raf templates to mask off the base gray in prep for Humbrol 11 silver.
    And don't mind the purple spot in the middle right of the pics, they're bad pixels or something on my camera.
