    Repainting my MS bucket a progress thread

    Hey kids,

    I picked up this bucket a couple of months ago fully painted, unfortunately I wasn't happy with the paint job (Ms did not paint this) so I started the laborious task of sanding and repainting. I've hit more than my fair share snags (stupid masking fluid) but I think it's coming along well. Here is what the helmet looked like originally.

    Now here is what I have painted so far

    And just for kicks here is my costume so far.

    I have no idea when I'll have the chance to finish this (I have a ton of writing to do) so I would appreciate any pointers or kind words.

    Your painting looks good so far.

    Just a couple things I noticed.
    ESB Helmet
    ESB EE-3 Blaster
    ESB Gloves
    ROTJ Gauntlets
    ROTJ Side Pouches
    Jango Girth Belt
    Jango Ammo Belt

    Cool stuff, especially for a custom Mando.

    If you're going for a movie look, it'll still look cool, but you're mixing movie parts. You may already know this, but just in case, I thought I'd point it out for you.

    Good luck.

    Thanks ( I did know I was mixing and matching, I just liked certain pieces from ROTJ more)
