You're doing a fantastic job! Count me in as one of the guys that have been too scared to tackle a helmet paintjob myself. Maybe one of these days I'll finally give it a go!

You just gotta go for it! Originally I was going to be super strict while doing the paint up of the helmet and that just ended up becoming stressful and taking the fun out of it which at that point why do it lol do I decided to look at some visual references but for the most paint free hand it just like they would have done with the original helmet and it gives it kinda my own spin on it and makes it my own which makes it even that much more special to me! All in all I’d say give it a shot you would be surprised how easy it can be if you take your time and just have fun with it!

I know this isn’t really concerning my WIP but my oldest friend who I grew up with watching Star Wars with practicing all the moves with lightsabers with got inspired by my build and is deciding to do an ESB Darth Vader build he’s already got his anovos helmet cape and chest armor and is well on his way to becoming the dark lord himself!! Definitely going to be a fun build for him!

Ya after out talk I did my research and measured everything and kinda mocked it up so I should be all set as soon as amazon sends it over
You are doing such a good job, I didn’t want you to ruin it with a decal. You would have probably regretted it after the fact. You will be much happier with the results of painting it after being masked off.

You’re definitely right about that! Especially how hard I worked on this lol I knocked all that out in 8 days and it was not easy hahaha

Small update I got some nice chrome paint and used it on my borden pierce (I may have spelled that wrong lol) but I thought it gave it a nice touch seeing as the piece was casted with the helmet.

"Borden" was spelled correctly, but "Pierce" was not (I believe you meant "Piece") - Hahaha! :p Also I do believe it is technically called a "Borden Connector".

Looks pretty sweet though. Had you not said anything, I woulda swore that was metal. What kind of chrome paint is that? (y)
