    I'm doing a little research on the RF side of the helmet, I've looked at all the stencils for the helmet but can't seem to find any references to the right side of the helmet on the RF ear piece. Are there stencils or pics or something?

    ESB or ROTJ?

    Tried looking in the reference galleries? I think that most of what can be documented is there.

    Yeah ESB...I've been looking at all the ref pics. Looks like just a couple of decals and slight weathering?

    That's why I thought that name had come up, lmao...thanks guys I'll find him.

    Here are some pics of my current paint job....most of the credit goes to it's previous owner (you know who you are ) so it's hard to keep up with the awesome detail that is already been done.

    I think my "cat scratch" is too big and messed up?

    You can also paint the "decals" yourself. The one on the right ear is a bit more work than the left one though But as everybody stated. terminal fettler + Lucksy31 are saviors for anyone painting a helmet for their first time. Ive gotten great help from both.

    Another question, is there a pics or templates of how the circuit board is painted or is it just put up under the lid?

    As far as I can see from the ref pics Ive looked at it is mostly the same red as the trim/mandibles, like its been sitting there while painting it.
