Merry Christmas all! For Fett, there are no breaks, even for holidays. ;)
Work on the dome continues with the cat scratch region, and the area around the turn signals. I also filled the dent with silver and I'll work on the detailing tomorrow.

The dent and streak are finished. The dent is my favorite detail on the ESB helmet. Gives it a lot of character.

Next I'll be working on the big scrape on the top of the dome.

Soon!

I've gotten a good amount of work done between last night and today. I finished up the big scrape across the top of the dome...

... and finished the killstripes. Here are a few angles to show the color shift.

Next is to add the little chips and damage between and around the stripes.

Thanks!
I finished up the remaining detail on the left side of the dome.

Once that was done, I blocked in the dark color on the outer cheeks.

Thanks! The outer cheeks are hand brushed, as I think they were on the original.

Detailing continues with the right cheek. The left cheek has more detail and will take a little longer to do.

Woof! ;)

Ok, so this is my last update in 2018!
I got the left cheek done this evening. I always liked the damage patterns on this area. They look sort of angular to me.

The next update will show the helmet with some red on it.

Happy New Year, everyone. Be safe, have fun, and see you in 2019!

Yeah, once the red is on, it really starts to take on that Fett look.

I got the keyslot area finished today. I'll move up to the red band next.

And the left section is finished. This will look a little different after I add the white thumbprints at the end.

I installed rare earth magnets in the ear cap. This makes it really easy to access the RF stalk bolt.

Two magnets are more than strong enough for the ear cap.

I wouldn’t know about easy access to the range finder!

The red reallt makes it pop my favorite part of your paint ups!
