So I started a thread about 2 years ago on a helmet that was going to become an ESB that I got from DVH which is now 7CS but I got so caught up in everything goin on in my life that the helmet took the back burner for as the title says 2 years roughly lol. Now I have managed to free up some time and get back to painting. only thing is one thing changed. Father watching season 2 of The Mandalorian and loving the simple but fresh helmet I’ve decided to ease my way back into it with a simpler helmet haha. So here’s my progress so far. It was primed and painted white for my wedding so it did have a slight head start from 2 years ago haha and basically took the helmet apart and painted the silver base layer.
Now here’s where I need some trained eyes since I’m partially color blind I’m having a hard time figuring out if the fresh colors are fresh ESB or ROTJ, Or is it a mix? Any help before I move on would be appreciated. I’m thinking more on the ESB line but the green looks a bit darker and the back panel is really throwing me for a loop.

Altered some of the masking I already did and did a little more today! The more I look at my pictures I saved to attempt to replicate it off of I see minor details I should change. Basically all that’s left is the back and the top which is a pain in the neck to find any decent pics of the top.

Got a few coats of grey on now for a coat of green to give the damage some depth before the complete paint over for the fresh paint job! Had some issues with the masking fluid tho. But since it’s getting painted over at the end o well.
