    Well, I haven't done it yet, but I was considering using the lab-metal in the silver parts and maybe some leather blackened in the from piece, just to make it interesting. I'll let you know if it sticks to plastic well.

    I have the Kylo Ren helmet I am planing to improve. Sorry, didn't mean to intrude on a Fett thread.

    I did a custom paint scheme, dent filling on mine and replaced the RF stalk with a longer one I 3D printed.

    Thanks. It was pretty simple with rattle cans and blackwash. I really need to invest in an airbrush and practice. I want to one day attempt an ESB and ROTJ paint job.

    Would you happen to know where I could find the 3d file for the stalk or if it is your file would you be able to make it public? I've been having a hard time finding a longer stalk and that would really make life easier.
    Thanks

    The file was made public over on the Mandalorian Mercs Forums. A member in my area made the file for all to use. Follow the link to the thread. You may have to make a forum account there if you don't already have one.

    Mines is started, I want to join up with the Mandalorian Mercs so I'm going a custom Manadlorian.
    First three are colors on, I modified the dent so it looks more like a gouge with a different shape, and not looking like a Boba dent.

    Are you using spray can or airbrush?

    I used spray can's. I used grey primer which was fine, I used Krylon Fusion paint for plastics for the white which was fine. Then I used Rustolieum for the grey and I got a little bit of it on the face part and it stayed sticky like it wasn't drying. I stripped that off. I then try a different brand for my light blue for the back and face and it too stayed sticky. I had to strip that off.
    The paint reacted with the helmet material which I wasn't expecting.

    My helmet is done on the outside.
    I got to put a couple more coats of clear on it, but it is done.
    I detailed it with a few things, the new RF stock is made from cut down 1/8" aluminum flat stock. I have to do some work on the inside and I make a chin cup for it.

    Kill stripes added. Just need to change/add a couple minor things and finish the ear caps and rangefinder

    I'm also planning on making the Borden connector another hidden Mickey.

    Used rustoleum spray paints and liquid latex from a Halloween store. Still trying to figure out the spraying technique before I tackle a ESB fett paint job on my scratch build.

    The ears were fabricated with plastic/fiberglass/bondo. Inside was reinforced with bondo as well.
