    Tutorial on Painting the helmet?

    Hey Folks,

    Got my DP96 in the mail yesterday, and thankfully it fits quite well. While this isn't going to be the Fett Helmet I ultimately wind up using, I wanted to start out with the DP96 until I can afford the higher grade helmets.

    With that being said... does anyone have any good links for tutorials on how exactly to paint he helmet?

    Any help would be apprecaited

    Dion,

    Whats up man? Met you at Empire Fan Fest. I was the Jango there (I think you had a tusken rig on?).

    I used to be a member of the NER, but have since moved out of NYC.

    Shoot me a PM and I'll try to help out. I think Ed mentioned to me that you were thinking of doing a Boba.

    Here's another thread with great info.

    http://tdh.prop-planet.com/viewtopic...c=6556&forum=2

    Its for ESB color scheme but the principles contained in that thread apply to painting in general. I'm using it to great success.

    My bucket as it stands today:

    I WHOLE heartedly endorse Lynn's spray paint choices. I used maybe 85% of them for my ROTJ and I am really excited at how it came out.

    That dude would be me.

    Jez have put up both my Fett tutorials on he's site. The ROTJ helmet have been put to shame by all the new ones made after but I still stand behind the ESB one to a 100%!

    The can both be find here: http://www.starwarshelmets.com/
    Check under the link "Tutorials" and you'll find both of them.

    I hope they help!

    Steve.
