Repainting my MS bucket a progress thread

Hey kids,

I picked up this bucket a couple of months ago fully painted, unfortunately I wasn't happy with the paint job (Ms did not paint this) so I started the laborious task of sanding and repainting. I've hit more than my fair share snags (stupid masking fluid:angry) but I think it's coming along well. Here is what the helmet looked like originally.

Now here is what I have painted so far

And just for kicks here is my costume so far.

I have no idea when I'll have the chance to finish this (I have a ton of writing to do) so I would appreciate any pointers or kind words.

Your painting looks good so far. :)

Just a couple things I noticed.
ESB Helmet
ESB EE-3 Blaster
ESB Gloves
ROTJ Gauntlets
ROTJ Side Pouches
Jango Girth Belt
Jango Ammo Belt

Cool stuff, especially for a custom Mando.

If you're going for a movie look, it'll still look cool, but you're mixing movie parts. You may already know this, but just in case, I thought I'd point it out for you.

Good luck.

Thanks:cheers ( I did know I was mixing and matching, I just liked certain pieces from ROTJ more):)
