Superb Ryan. Now doesn't that feel like a step up from ROTJ. It's ok to say it brother....

Lol, inside he knows it but will never admit it in public.

Shame on both of you guys, lol!
Remember, fellas, I never said I DON'T love the ESB (or PP1, PP2 or PP3, for that matter), I just prefer the RotJ. Trying to turn the FPH2 into an RotJ just won't work, for several reasons. Mostly is the wavy brow. For example, BobaMaker's wonderful helmet is patterned after the ESB lid, and even though I've seen several quality paint-ups in the RotJ colors, it just...doesn't look right. If I would've painted this with the RotJ scheme, I would've eventually hated myself, first for trying to make the FPH2 into something it's not, and second for wasting an FPH2!
Anyways, I got the main colors of the ears laid down last night. I still have a ton of detail work to do on them, but I think they've turned out nice, so far. I used several Polly Scale colors on them, and I gotta say, I really do like working with acrylics (I had a poor initial experience with them). I also got myself a bottle of Reefer Gray, and I'm looking forward to hitting a few parts on the back of the helmet with it (over the Lark Dark Gray) to see if if blends better with my custom green.
I also noticed that just by having the Olivgrun on the left ear, the green of the dome and cheeks seems to look a bit greener overall. That made me pretty happy.
Anyways, enough ranting. I took a few more rotten pics this morning on my way out the door (I'm really getting good at terrible pics). I really feel positive about how this whole project is shaping up. Still lots to do, but thanks for looking!

Well, have to pat yourself on the back , even for ****** phone pics she came out nicely. Just remember the ESB is the path to the darkside. Once you find yourself ordering a blue flight suit your in too deep.
On another note:
Now you have something to look forward to with the FP ROTJ future release!

Would it be bad manners to resurrect this thread and ask for some more quality pics of this OUTSTANDING paintup?? I'd like to use them as a reference for when I restart my helmet build. Thanks!
