    I have built the helmet the kit up and have painted the entire thing. I am not painting over an existing scheme, however my intention was to make it look like that was the case. Or do you think the green/green and burgundy just does not work?

    Its your custom, but IMO, it just dosnt "flow" with the rest of the colors. I get what your saying, but thats how I feel.

    I would agree with Chris. I'd say continue the Blue Orange/Yellow skeem on the lower cheeks or contiune the burnt orange color from the back of the Helm onto the cheeks. The Green there just seems to clash with everything.

    Maybe paint over the green and have it weathered so you can still see it under the top layer. Might still give you the painted over effect your looking for.

    Yes. I would say keep the green and red since you like it, but paint over it with the other colors. Then stratch away some portions so that you can see the original colors underneath.

    Yeah, the colour scheme looks like you're repainting a Boba helmet, but aren't quite finished yet.

    IMHO, make the cheeks the same color as the lower back of the helmet.

    i agree with the rest , i think orange flat cheeks would work. just my op. But what ever you like bro , is your mando.

    I hope I didn't come off like I didn't like what you were saying Bro, I was just explaining it was painted from scratch.

    Thanks for all the comments guys, seems to be a strong consensus here Which I suppose is good, the bucket was meant to look like a miss match affair, maybe it worked too well

    I think I will wait till the rest of the costume is together, in a week or so with any luck, and post photos of it complete. The armour is mostly green so that may help, although a repaint is not out of the question. Also the dome needs to be weathered in which will tone the bright colours down a little.

    Cheers for all you comments guys, watch this space.
