    TDH's own Celebration 5 ESB Fett Helmet (Updated 07/11/2010)

    [FONT=Tahoma]With Celebration V just around the corner... I was recently asked by the Administration to help donate a Boba Fett Empire Strikes Back paint job and display for The Dented Helmet table that will be CV. I was more than happy to lend a hand for the board that has given me so much.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Tahoma]I thought it would be best to share a progress thread, as I'm on a one month time crunch, I figured this thread will help me complete the project as well. This will only be a half Mannequin display at CV, so the upper torso is all that will be completed.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Tahoma]Fettpride has graciously donated a Premium format MR Prototype Fett helmet... the best of the best IMO...Thanks FP. Darthmiller will be completing the armor, and starting a separate thread, and the Administration will be donating purchased pieces to complete this project...[/FONT]

    [FONT=Tahoma]Recieved the FP Premium format helmet last week, and attached the ears... next up the visor install.[/FONT]

    So will this be topical, layered or a combo? Either way the work that you two do always turns out amazing!!!

    Combo of both... would love to complete it all layered, but I only have a month.. ugh.
    I think the results will be the same... with more control on exact details.

    This has been forever in the making (mostly because I have dropped the ball) but I just want to take the opportunity to openly thank Alex, Chris, and Jason for really stepping up and helping us out with this project! I am really looking forward to seeing it come to life!

    Been a tad busy painting in the last 24hours..

    I managed to get the back base colors down. I used the layered method on the back, took some time, but I think it came out great...just need the detail work, I'll save that for the end though...sorry for the bad pics.
