Hello All, So after a long winter of waiting, I have decided to convert my Esb to a Rotj. I have always had a problem with my Esb paint up, and since it was a first attempt I always knew i might convert it. I started my Fett as a SE build-up (unknown to me at the time). When i first started i had no clue which helmet went with what. My visor installation has always bugged me, due to warping when left out in the sun.
OK so here goes, my first attempt at an ROTJ helmet!
First this is a comparison of my first ESB to my (almost) finished ROTJ
The visor cutout shape, and the angle of the manibles has always bothered me. For this paintup i wanted to make sure they were more accurate. This is a line up of the real rotj helmet,vs mine.
I have a Asok cc budget, which the mandibles appear to be alittle too round. So in this build i did a quick fix to change this.
First i added bondo behind the area being removed. Dremeled the area, re-bondoed and painted!
