    Hey All, I know there are a lot of guides and walkthroughs out there, and have been researching - but what are your thoughts on physical battle damage as part of pre-paining prep? I've seen some great examples, but thoughts on the subject? The link below has quite a bit of physical damage, but I like it:

    Hey man, good morning.

    I used this thread, as AFFo$ is a baaaad man, and he didn't pinpoint much damage that her personally inflicted into the casting/helmet itself.

    As far as following along with some of the WIP threads I would recommend following some of the painters who have done several paint ups. I have done a ROTJ but I would hate to be the reference for someone.

    There is some of the physical damage that is needed, like the damage on the back panels and near the visor. Think of which spots will be focused on more and those are the places where the physical damage is more critical.

    I used the pictures of the FPH2 in Rubio95's review, as did Nid, as a guide, but mainly tried to stick with what I could pull from the screen captures. I didn't go as far as using the MoM pictures as I'm shooting for screen ROTJ. Here's an example:

    As dv8r stated, this thread http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/r...tj+fph2+review is a good reference tool for the physical damage.

    Yes add the damage before you even put the silver on....or primer for that matter...theres a TON of physical damage on the helmet, you can see all of it in Celebration pics, MOM pics, Heilman pics, in the gallery...mostly its hard to put down damage if you don't have your stencils scaled out already so start with getting that all worked out...then add the damage in the locations as necessary and then prep and paint.

    Thanks all, a follow-up question, but is it ok to lay fibreglass with resin inside a non-glass helmet?
