    New ROTJ bucket - WIP

    Here's my progress so far on my MS3 #16. I was almost done and learned that tape hates me! It's my first attempt at painting a prop, so I know it's not screen accurate, but I'm pretty happy. Great helmet to work with MS!









    Obviously, I'm hoping to get a "Snifftacular", or a Seeker face, but I'm not sure I've earned it yet.

    I think you have managed to nail a specially hard helmet to paint. This one looks very good!! Good job

    Looks great... I'm painting a ROTJ myself, and its not nearly as easy as I thought it'd be. You're doing an awesome job.
