oh, don't get me wrong. I'm not down on myself over this at all. I'm happy with the result (mostly) but I can't imagine putting this much time in it again! I will probably scratch build more helmets but I probably won't do a boba paint job ever again just due to pure time and the fact that my arm, shoulders and back hurt from doing it lol! I'm satisfied enough to stay away from this particular paint job for a very long time! I say that, but I'm sure the pain will fade and I'll get it in my head to do another eventually......Don't say that, no one is going to get it right first time. My own first, and so far only, attempt at this was pretty mediocre overall. The only part I was really all that happy with was the back panels and, frankly, I made a right pig's ear of the dent, the killstripes were overcooked... the list goes on. Those top guys are good because they've had a lot of practice. Superjedi, who is one of the most consistent, has done over 20 ESB helmets.
