So, since I am starting my first Boba build after nearly completing my custom Mando, I've decided to take the same route I did then: practice on my kid's stuff before trying mine. I bought him an upgraded helmet compared to the one I made him and am going to try to paint it ESB style. I've got a DVH coming my way for me. First, the helmet. As you can see it's incredibly accurate IMG_20180908_112150 by MMcFett posted Nov 5, 2018 at 8:00 PM It was a fairly cheap find at the thrift store, which will do well enough for my purposes. Needed a little touch up so I filled in some holes from a bad cast. IMG_20181027_131812 by MMcFett posted Nov 5, 2018 at 7:59 PM Next I put some primer and Rub n Buff for the base layer. I'm going to try a layered paint approach. IMG_20181105_101159 by MMcFett posted Nov 5, 2018 at 7:59 PM I set in a T visor just so you can see the shape of the helmet when it's not warped.

Had some issues getting the transfer paper I got from Hobby Lobby to work with the stencils, so I just had to free hand this.

The main thing is to see what my skill level is and figure out the colors and techniques using hopefully all stuff I can get from the local Hobby Lobby.
