    Minutefett ESB Restored paint up

    Just received my MinuteFett ESB helmet. Lovely kit, I went for the metal ears too. this’ll be my second paint job and will form part of my ESB build so will be looking for 501 clearance. My first one was on a 3D printed helmet in prep for this one and you can see that HERE.

    The right Humbrol for the dome & cheeks?

    I’m curious… Terminal Fettler’s superb “One Last ESB paint job” thread lists Humbrol green #78 in the updated colours list at the start of the thread, which is what I used here: However, it was pointed out to me that it’s not right and since looking, I have to agree that it doesn’t look...

    Wax paper, graphite paper?

    I’m having a hard time with the templates, specifically transferring them on to the helmet. What kind of transfer paper do you use?

    ESB Jetpack Build/Paint up

    Just finished my jetpack build yesterday. I still need to get a micro dental file for it but other than that I'd say this is finished, I might add some more light weathering as well. Little edit, I made the jetpack a little lighter and added more rust stains to the thrusters

    Need Some Help with Helmet Paint

    I'm a bit new to this, but I've recently started work on a Boba Fett Helmet build and started looking at the paint stencils. I've found they don't quite line up with my pepakura files. Is this common or something I should be worried about? All help is appreciated

    Big Games First ESB Fett wip

    Hey there everyone! This will be my first thread detailing my build for an ESB Fett. I’m sure it’s gonna be a slow build as I work in the film industry which consistently requires long hours and sometimes weekends. On top of that my wife who supports me doing this but will also want my attention...
