Color of the masking tape damage - Special Edition helmet


New Hunter
What color are you guys using for the masking tape damage weathering under the kill stripes on the SE ROTJ helmet? I am currently wrapping up my paint job on my bucket and can't seem to find a solid answer for what people are using. I am currently using Humbrol paints for the entire helmet. Thanks for your input.

It looks like the masking tape used for the killstripes pulled off some paint off the dome, and they fixed it painting over it with the same green as used on the dome.



So you could either mimick that on your helmet by scratching away some paint to reveal the silver layer, or paint a “tape pull” with silver and then paint over that with your dome green, thinned down to be translucent. That’s what I did and I’m quite pleased with it.
