    *****Tim's MSH2 ESB Paint Job***** FINALLYQuality pics: 1/22

    Well i finally got the pictures developed. I took alot of pictures in different light setting to give you guys a good idea how the colors can really vary. Everything on the bucket is done now minus the ears.











    All the colors where done w/ the ones Lee listed, i painted

    it in layers (1 white primer, 3 layers chrome spray paint, 3

    layers Panzer Olive Green) All the silver scratches where

    done w/ a paint silver pen made by *pentel* its kinda of

    expensive 6 bucks, but well worth it. Sorry for the crudeness

    of the pictures, i took them w/ my buddies digital camer

    which wasnt very good. Im almost done w/ the dome, i started

    the kill stripes last night and i should be completely done

    w/ the dome this afternoon and hopefully get some good

    pictures up of all the detail. Once again sorry for bad

    picture quality.
    *****************UPDATE*********************


    I still have a small amount of weathering to do around and above ths stripes but the jist of its done. When the rest of my paints arrive ill finish the base coats on everything else.
    ********UPDATE 3**********
    NO FLASH

    NO FLASH

    FLASH

    FLASH

    Well ive got the "bulk" of the painting done, minus the ears, back of the helmet which i just started today, and the RF. The Mandibles color i had to mix a bit, i used the BoxCar Red that RS stated but it seemed waayyyy to brown, even in the different light it didnt look right. So i took a few dropps of just regular old testers red paint and mixed that in an air-brushed it on. For the back of the helmet, i also didnt care for the Euro 1 Dark green out of the can. The color seem way to close to the same color as the cheeks and dome, so i added some testors blue to it and mixed to the desired color and air brushed on. Unfortuantly these pics where taken w/ a really really bright flash so the colors are realllly distorted. Also for the left ear piece i didnt care for the out of bottle color that was recommended (RLM dark green) I was planning on just mixing a color to get the desired green but i found a random bottle of testors green sitting around that looks pretty close. I sprayed it on and it was perfect, . Ill try and get some better pics that show the "TRUE" colors of the helmet.Ive been working on this for about 2 weeks on and off, but probable for a grand total of 4 or 5 solid days. Once im finshed w/ the back and my visor arrives ill get some quality pics up......BTW i havnt fixed the kill stripes yet, their still to wide.

    Questions, Suggestions......Thanks

    You wanted suggestions well...

    No offense but here's my suggestion: get some better pictures if you can. Seriously...I personally can't tell much of anything from those pics. If you want some constructive criticizm regarding your paint job then you really need to give us a better view. Sorry man, but about the only thing you can tell from those pics is that its definitely a Fett helmet.

    Well, Tim don't have a digi cam, so the best we could do, was sit the helmet on the scanner...and throw a towel over it. We got a few good close ups of the Scratch and Dent.



    You can see both very clearly right there. It looks amazing so far. All the details are crisp and clean and give a real sheer damage look to the bucket. Keep it up Timmy.

    Re: *****Tim's MSH2 ESB Paint Job*****UPDATE 2 (quality pics)

    It looks very promising, Tim!

    One nitpick:
    The killmarks looks a bit thick. Yes, no?

    With the new quality helmets floating around and peoples paint-skills the quality on Fett helmets are very high these days!

    keep us posted

    Re: *****Tim's MSH2 ESB Paint Job*****UPDATE 2 (quality pics)

    Yeh, the back kill marks are kinda thick. i put too many layers on them I think. Ill probable sand them down and bit and see how it looks. All those pictures where taking w/ flash as well so that may have somer weird effect on the way they look. That being said, ill see what i can do about the stripes and finish the dome up. Thanks for your input guys!

    I'm glad to see group members showing the progress on their Fetts. I'm new to this costume as I normally do the whole Stormtrooper thing, but all of your conversations are really helping me in my ESB Fett that I'm working on. Thanks!

    From what I can tell, the back of the helmet looks pretty sweet! Too bad you don't have a nice camera to show off all that talent
