Been awhile - What exactly do I have here?

Bought many moons ago, but I can't remember any of my Boba history. Took a break from my proping for a few years to pursue a couple other hobbies, but getting back in. Anything worth having (working with) or just historical curiosity? Many thanks in advance for any info! (y)

Here are the helmet pics:

That's an original fettpride helmet, not the premium but the standard one, which is based on a MR standard Fett helmet. It's not the best helmet, but it's a really good base.

The paints are Humbrol. Not the best paints (nowadays Archive-X are better) but you can paint a good helmet with those. Some numbers may have been updated since then, you would have to check the last terminalfettler paint threads.

Thanks!

Who is the best vendor for Archive-X paints?

That paint is expensive because it was matched to the old 1976 Floquil line. You can still paint an amazing helmet with Tamiya paints, as well as Humbrol, Vallejo, PollyScale/Testors.

Since what I have is MR derived and MR was from the PP3, would mine be best for a PP3 paint up or does it matter?

Also I can't seem to find the current Humbrol paint numbers to see if I need to buy more. Anyone able to point me to a link? I'll be using Archive X paints for another helmet and my Falcon kit down the road.
