thanks for the compliments everyone, yeah I thought the helmet looked a little big too, but when its painted and on with the suit, it looks and feels oh so right(I could just have a big melon though:lol:)

I know the helmet is nice and wide in true ESB fashion. How is it front to back? I wear glasses and I'm just barely ok with the DP95 but I don;t want to feel like I'm driving from the back seat either. :lol:

yeah my face sits about 1-2 inches away from the actual visor, so its kinda different to get used to, but a good different! my face was practically smashed in the DP 96 I had, and now it doesn't fog up on me either(y)
-and yeah it does look alot like an ESB shape to me(got me thinkin;))


Active Hunter
That came out great! You did an excellent job on painting it..congrats!(y)

Would it be okay, if I send this link to Jezz Hill of
He might like to feature your painting skills :)

Great job on the painting! The detail is great! I have a Don Post and it will most likely be years before I upgrade, but I think you did a very good job. Thanks for posting the pics. :D

thanks y'all, fett-texas ranger- if you search ROTJ helmet color scheme(or something to that effect), I think it lists Lynn TXP's paints that he used for his, they are great colors, and I found em' all at Fred Meyer and Home Depot(spray paints). Good luck!
Late as usual but hey....

Sweet job on a sweet helmet.

I am eye balling the MLC's myself.

I voted fro the ROTJ paint job on the latest pole.

if (we're all ESB fans >= 90) {
score = 'Sweet';
} else if (we're all ESB fans >= 80) {
score = 'Super-Cool';
} else if (we're all ESB fans >= 70) {
score = 'Wicked-Bad';
} else if (we're all ESB fans >= 80) {
score = 'Boss';
} else {
score = 'It's all good!!!';
System.out.println("Score = " + score);

Did not delcare a variable - sorry :):):):)

Either way, great job on the bucket.
