    R. S. helmet progress ** Update Today 10/01

    Yep that's 6 helmets at once with 7th on the way. I am officially certfied a lunatic for tackling this the good part is 6 of these are going to be ESB! and I'll be making a 2nd attempt on a JEDI helmet. You know who you are but your helmet is getting ready for the green after I let the water dry on the back two helmets I just received. I take great pics too haha Brak's loves good pics like this.

    Take Care

    Holy crap, and I was just about to contact you about one... I think I'll let you enjoy your "retirement"... for now.

    Whoo hoo! Cool pic, RS!

    I love those production line photos! You're going to have to crank that photo up to 1200 dpi to make Braks happy

    Sheesh, that's quite an undertaking! All I can say is, the recipients will be more than pleased when they receive them.

    Although it will likely be not possible, it would be cool to see the painted buckets all lined up for a family portrait. Regardless, have a good time painting, looks like fun to me.

    Nope, I don't envy you one bit... Have fun doing them though!

    It would be cool to see them all done in row like the one LFL archives pic though.

    I did 4 recently and those weren't too bad except a few slow downs. We have had rough weather the past week in Florida making it bad to paint in so that has created mild delays.

    What would be really cool, but may add extra time to your progress, would be to show the progression of your painting, having each of the 6 helmets portray a different step and level of completion

    Re: Who is more foolish the fool? or.....**Update pics**

    I have two more on the table they couldn't fit in pic. This may prove something as well but if you look the helms they look a bit different but they aren't they are all MSH2's. Also the paint thrown was put on exactly the same time too and see diff hues?

    You should post that at RPF to PROVE that camera angles can GREATLY affect the way a helmet looks.

    Awesome work, as always.

    Cool!!! Yeah I've been working on my bucket too, and it is just crazy how much of a difference angle makes when taking pics!! I don't know if its just the shape of the bucket or how the flash hits the thing in a certain way. The cheeks especially seem to really act weird. I took a pic, then moved about 2 inches & took another one, & the the cheecks appear to be a totally different color!!! Light blue instead of green! Do you think it may have anything to do w/ the panzer color itself?? The red doesnt seem to change that much depending on angle, but the green sure does! Anyway, the buckets are looking super Lee!
