    FINAL UPDATE: September 15, 2013

    53 days later. . .

    The helmet is complete! I got all the final detailing and assembly done over the
    last few days. Not much more to say about this project, so I'll just put up a few selected final photos.



    After all this time, and having done so many ESB helmets, I still really enjoy the process of
    getting a kit from its raw state to a completed bucket.



    My hobby time is my "Zen meditation" time, and I just get in the zone when I'm working on a helmet.
    Many people might find detail painting tedious, but I enjoy seeing how each helmet progresses, just
    as (hopefully) you guys do!



    It always seems that there's something new I get to do when I work on one of these kits. In this case,
    Steve had sent a real MQ-1 calculator that he asked me to disassemble to use the circuit board. Until
    this project I had never even seen one up close, let alone take one apart. So that was very cool!

    Here's the rundown of parts for Steve's ESB helmet:
    --fiberglass GMH casting #22 (FP)
    --machined aluminum ear & RF stalk kit (MojoFett)
    --authentic Casio MQ-1 calculator circuit board
    --machined brass Borden connector replica (MojoFett)
    --3M dark green polycarbonate face shield
    --3-piece range finder topper kit (TerminalFettler)

    Steve, it was a lot of fun doing this helmet. Thanks for entrusting it to me, and I hope you get
    tons of enjoyment out of it! I never really asked if this is for costuming or display, but if you
    wear it for trooping, I expect to see some pics of you in action!

    Thanks to everyone who followed along,
    Eric

    Stellar work Eric! You really have fine tuned your skills, that every one of these helmets look as though they have come of some sort of crazy awesome production line! Fantastic as always, and I have no doubt you are one of the finest painters on these boards. Bravo my friend!

    Steve , i am totally excited for you on seeing your helmet progress and quite frankly very jealous , enjoy it every moment you can
    Eric you are a devil ,because you kill with each passing paintjob you complete. So now i'm sad because i don't own this helmet and this thread has pretty much ended.

    Eric,
    The helmet looks perfect and I cannot wait to see it together with my other boba pieces! This will definitely be the centerpiece of my costume. If anyone has a chance to have a commission done by Eric you will not regret it. Amazing progress threads as well as awesome communication.

    Hey guys, thanks! This one is getting boxed up this afternoon for a trip to its new home.
    I always get a little misty sending a helmet off once it's done. *sniff*

    Actually, I have my next helmet in my hobby room right now!
    New thread will probably begin sometime this week. Stay tuned!

    Thanks again, guys. The helmet was shipped out on Monday afternoon.
    Hopefully Steve is satisfied once he has it in hand!
