    slave1pilot's MS2 ROTJ helmet is finished

    thought I'd post up in here since my progress thread gets a little too long to read through
    The first one is outside in the Sunlight
    the second inside the garage with a flash (I gotta get a darker visor)

    ya, a darker visor would make a world of difference on it. Great job on your helm.

    Looking very good. What paints did you use on it?

    Looks great outdoors. But if I were figuratively in your shoes, I'd get a darker visor so the camera flash doesn't show your face. Well, that's just me, but I always like my face to be hidden.

    I'm just going to double up the visor I have. I still have a couple of those left

    What paints did you use on it?

    I used a mix of paints recommended by the people on the boards & my own experience
    The base Silver is "Krylon Dull Aluminum"
    The back of the helmet is "Colorplace Kelly Green" enamel rattle-can from Wal-Mart
    The dome & lower cheeks is "Polly Scale Panzer Olive Green" acrylic with an airbrush
    The mandibles are "Floquil Caboose" enamel airbrushed on, with "Floquil PRR Maroon" accents brushed next tothe scratches
    The upper Cheeks are my own mix of colors. I used "Floquil Brunswick Green", "Floquil Light Blue",& a touch of "Polly Scale US Medium Green"
    I know, the Brunswick green & Light Blue are enamels & the US Med Green is acrylic, but it worked.
    Th Kill Stripes are "Colorplace Orange" enamel rattle-can from Wal-Mart
    The weathering is "Floquil Grimy Black" airbrushed on & Cheap Wal-mart Acrylic Black craft paint mixed with Windshield Washer Fluid

    I did all the paint in layers, adding clearcoats here & there to help seal it in. The scratches are all real or masked off before paint
    The whole process took about 12-15 hours using the online reference pics as a guide
    all the way, no SE here buddy!
