The right mandible is done! Yahoo!
This means that all painting is finished on the helmet itself. I'll work on the ears next, and then final weathering.
I'm including my usual collage that shows how I build the detail working topically.
It's a really nice kit. The helmet shell is strong without being too thick, and the resin parts like the ears are cleanly cast with only minimal cleanup required.
This is the first Viva Fett cast I've worked with, and will soon be doing a second.
I wouldn't have any issues recommending it if someone wanted to get one.
Ok, confession time! I actually was further ahead on this helmet before SW Celebration than I had shown.
Now that I'm back into my normal routine, let's get caught up on photos.
Here are the ears in various stages of work.
All of the final weathering and assembly is finished as well, and I'll put up some pics of the completed helmet later today!
