    May 16, 2009, 12:36 AM - woodmans helmet paintjob #1

    looking for some feedback on my paintjob, what do you think? I wish I had made
    the killstripes bigger but no way i'm repainting them i'm afraid i'd mess up the whole
    dome. the ear decal is hand painted and the visor is shot i'm gonna put in a
    new one. this is for my SE Fett.

    Pretty sweet man! Youve already said it with the kill stripes but they dont look too bad just a little on the small side. Could you try making them bigger with a finer tip brush or stencil?

    That's some good work you got there. I especially like the weathering, well done.

    I think it looks great! Ditto on the stripes, but I haven't even started my costume yet so I can't say too much. I'm really interested in everyone's photos to use for examples.

    I'm trying to get all the patterns together before I start any part in particular. If anyone has some tips for this policeman who wants to be Boba, send them on over! zahina@comcast.net

    That's really nice. I really want to start a helmet, but still researching everything. What did you use to start it?

    What's up Wood? Hey, nice work on that helmet! ESB is not an easy scheme to paint, but you did a great job, man! Keep us posted if you decide to tackle the kill stripes. What type of helmet is that?

    hey guys! Thanks alot for the props! It's a bradleyfett I think, I mean I forgot who it came from but it was 3 vacu-formed pieces so after i got it together I slushed 3
    layers of alumilite resin to give it some weight. I had to put the dent in too. today I
    sewed ,sewed is that even a word, anyway I made some little pillow like padding
    things for the inside. Big News I decided to tackle the killstripes. I taped off the bottom
    and resprayed the green top, then printed count dookies paint template a little bigger
    than scale,took the x-acto knife and carefully cut out the stripes to make it a spray template,blah blah. anyway this time I also misted some pumpkin orange on the ones toward the back so it would be a closer match and I like the outcome. I also had to repaint the rest of the dome but no big deal only it led me to redo most of the rest also.
    Sorry I cant post the photos righjt now because my camera is in my wifes purse in the bedroom and if I try to dig it out she'll kill me! I'll post pics of everything in the morning.
    woody!
