Looks really super Ruffkin! Only thing I can see, (Please forgive me for being critical, ) I'm pretty shure the ROTJ cheek accents are charcoal green instead of black, and the back of the helmet is a darker bluish green. besides that, Your bucket looks amazing. You got a really nice weathering effect going there! Great job man!
Thanks for the comments and critics(thats what I want)
Yes the RF stalk is aluminum and it is fiberglass. BobaFettish, it is a MSH but slightly modified to look closer to the ROTJ helmet. I sanded the area the ears go on to reduce the flare a bit and tried to take out the ESB wink(hope it worked)
As far as the colors, I was working off of the MOTM pics and tried to match it close. I believe the back is just a darker green for the Jedi helmet, I may be wrong though. As far as the cheeks they seem to vary in color in the pictures and my helmet does that in different lighting. the green from the cheeks reflects onto the weathered black and creates a new color. Overall I am happy with it.
Great paint job man. Work of art. I have a question. What do you use to make it chalky and faded like that? In those side pics, the back looks cloudy, and faded. It makes it look older and duller. I like that.
For the back I painted the base green on, then painted the silver battle damage,did some scrapes with a sharp object, and then misted part of it with a flat gray using an airbrush.
I am going to try to get some better close up pics to show all the detail.
Thanks for the compliments
