    Ugh, even though I know what you're striving for it PAINS me to see those pics F4R.

    When it ever comes for me to get a second GMH for an ESB (after first getting my unaltered display one) I may have to send it to you to do all the filling and re-scratching.
    I don't think I could bring myself to do it.

    Re: What Ive been up to...

    Oh BTW got my needle files at sears last night instead of borrowing from work, and got the keyslots and visor area sorted, need to install some bolts into the visor area later so I can have it nice and rigid while painting it up. Thinking about painting the inside thoughts opinions? The Jedi helmet looks to have white while the PP3 has black so Im not sure what I want to do really with the ESB, Jedi I may go white but Chris's FG resin looks so nice the way it is. Pics later of the trimmed helmet

    OH DEAR GOD WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!!!!!!!

    Looks good bro can't wait to see you work your magic on the GMH. Once I receive my MR from Chris the next lid I get will be the GMH for a ROTJ paint paint up.

    Re: What Ive been up to...

    So any opinions on the interior? Colorwise? For ESB my ROTJ Im doin white as the screen used apears to be white in the behind the scenes pics

    Re: What Ive been up to...

    From what i can make out the inside of the ESB seams to be like either a dusting of blue green almostr like over spray or mabey it is a tinted gel coat,
    its strange that the all seem to have difrent colours on the in side, and that the dents were added at difrent times,
    Im trying to do a "screen acuraste ESB , im planning on doing the interior last ,
    ive seen a 2 good atemps at doing the interor screen acurate,
    takes alot of diging for parts matching the real one ,
    Are you going for the whole thing bateri pac, foam and all the rest
