I've been looking for a while and working a bit on my Fett as well ... I finally got my hands on a digital camera so I thought I'd post a few pics .... Yes .. it's a warped Don Post, but it's all I can afford right now :)

Really excellent work on both.

What kind of paints did you use?

Thanks ..
I actually painted this one a few years ago, but still have the spray cans around. I used Krylon colors mostly, with mists of different ones to generate the colors I was looking for. Then added the 'damage' by hand with blacks, greys and silvers .... I'll see if I can find the actual colors.

Also ... there are lights (blinking LED's) in the rangefinder and a fan in the helmet which are turned off/on by a bank on two switches (top of inside helmet pic).

I agree, excellent job!
The toggle switches are on the right ear (top of pic), what is that on the left ear (bottom of inside pic)? It looks more like a switch or dial than a fan...
Hella padding, dude. It actually looks comfy. What did you use?

It's a little 12V micro fan from Radio Shack - runs off the 9V battery okay.

The padding is just foam blocks (packing from a box of hard disks) cutup and covered in material which I got at the local fabric store. I cut out material pieces a little bigger than the foam and hotglued the sides over the foam and then hotglued the pads to the inside of the helmet.
