    Like the title says. I'm a little out of the loop on who's doing good work nowadays.

    Feel free to post here or PM if that makes you more comfortable.

    Thanks,

    Are you talking about the 1/4 scale helmet?
    I've done 2 of them. One for me, and one for someone else. It really adds to the appearance of the PF figure!
    Here's a before and after of my conversion.



    PM me if you'd like more info.

    No, this would be a full-sized Natty helmet, aka MSH 1 (or is it 2?). Thanks, though.

    Good luck with those first two! lol

    Jason, Alex, and Garrett (TerminalFettler) are fantastic artists, nice guys to boot, and are hard to beat, but really don't do commission work anymore. Try the other ones listed in previous posts or (my personal ESB bucket painter) superjedi.

    So you can keep up to date with the modern standards off helmeting,
    and be able to say this is the clossest thing to a real fett helmet a Fettmn can have;
    were as the natty is an awsome helmet , but its not up to date with todays trends,


    That is why you , Want to do that

    (im doing a helmnet acrhive with one off each helmet ever made , and i need a natty not to mention a FPH and a MSH2 )

    I also have an original unpainted MSH1 that I'm not sure what to do with. Think I'll have to look into commissioning someone as well.....I definitely don't want to screw this helmet up!

    As you can see I'm in the early stages of putting my ESB costume together, but I've been collecting parts for a long time.

    My thoughts exactly. Every so often, I am tempted to try and do the helmet myself. But then clear-headed rational thought intercedes, and I leave it alone.

    PM Sent Squirk. I had retired from painting buckets a few years ago but have gotten the itch to pick it up again.

    I actually have an MSH2 helmet from the first run FP did after he got the mold from Natty. I'm not willing to part with it yet as it's my only bucket, but I"ve been seriously tempted to get one of the GMH helmets and would be willing to sell it once I had a troopable bucket.
