Well it woulda been done had i not just painted my ROTJ lid, gaunts, armor, jetpack, and weathered everything else, and repainted an ESB lid...which i kinda want to repaint again
@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?
I got rid of it mostly got a mouse and sanded the **** out of it more tonight! there is one spot there was a bubble of the regular resin in guess im gonna need to touch it up with silver paint
edit found that u use bonda platic metal! Will look for it and these look better than the actual helmet as far as shinyness goes

No idea what rub and buff is brother...but I read saint nastys other thread and im gonna grab some bondo plastic metal for it....its a tiny bubble on the right side of the helmet maybe 1/8 inch on the seam where the visor area meets the dome....helmets a little better now, using the mouse is working need to get the cheeks and back panels done with 800 now
this is rub 'n buff: http://www.amazon.com/Rub-N-Buff-Fin.../dp/B00081G2HG
and here's a video with the basics of using rub 'n buff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rItYKAEbt90
hey bud with that krylon small can how do you manage to get it smooth? This stuff is spraying pretty dusty and not laying smooth at all kinda irritating
they look super good!
So i guess its cause i used rustoleum primer...reading a little i found that krylon over rustoleum doesnt work well cruzer said something about a super light coat then go back a day later with the real paint to get the right effect....gonna go find the rub n buff today as well i think
@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.
Is it me or do the two lids look different in size?
ok, here we go, got them all finished painted. but enough introduction, let's just get to the pics. squirk's helmet is on the right, tk2280 on the left
A tear, just ran down my face
See post #26.
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.
asok with the ninja post.
