    @Mandalorian Guard Asok makes the helmet, and i make them beautiful.

    @Fett 4 Real how do you mean "stained?" are there some spots that are lighter and some darker? if you have a macro lens option on your camera could you take a pic (or just a really high rez camera, then crop a section out with the detail you're talking about) for me to see, then i'll give it my best guess.

    Fett 4 Real, I had a spot that had a little variation in the cold cast but when I polished it with aluminum polish the spots became almost invisible. Have you put down any polish?

    Don't paint it! Use Rub'n'Buff like they did on the real suit when the had a mar. If you need some rub'n'buff, PM me with your address and I will mail you some.

    @fett 4 real how bad is the ding that got down into the regular resin? and where is it? i've gotten a couple of those while working on these helmets but they're always in places that are easily covered with weathering.

    Just You Ya can't go by the ones that they are turned to the side. In one, the left looks bigger in one the right does. You would have to put them back to back to tell if there is a size dif. Cause the side shots make it look bigger due to the visor area.

    Nice job, especially on the painting and weathering! Is this a scratch built helmet or did you purchase it online?

    the helmets are made by asok, a member on these boards, and i take them from the raw state, as seen in the first post and turn them into works of jango art like in my last post. there are a few other threads of helmets i've done for other members here in the jango section.

    *edit*
    asok with the ninja post.
