    What types of tips are you looking for exactly? Painting? Construction? Sculpting?

    I would go for a DP 95 as a good start

    The greens on the helmet should be a bit darker with more grey in it than the Fett helmets

    A nice popcicle orange will work great for the mandible areas.

    Be sure to fill in the dent really well and the helmet should have about 6 kill stripes instead of the Fett numbers.

    Check out http://members.shaw.ca/Jodo_Kast/ if you want some pics or to read the first 3 chapters of my Jodo Kast fan fiction.

    We used a camo green found at Home Depot for the base coat and a charcoal color for the cheeks. Pumpkin orange was used on the visor area I believe. After weathering I sprayed the whole thing with Testors Dullcote. Hope that helps!
