Back again! :p
I'm starting another ESB helmet build this weekend. Actually it's a ROTJ SE, but I count it as an ESB. It's just got some extra character.
This is an FPH2 kit from Wasted Fett. It's the standard kit with resin ears, but my customer sent me a Bobamaker RF and stalk.

So far I've done the prep and installed some hardware on the ears. The main ear pieces got small machine screws epoxied in, and the upper RF ear got some rare Earth magnets.

Everything is in primer as of about an hour ago.

I airbrushed the Concrete color on the rear panels. Once it dries I'll begin stenciling and masking for the dark green.

Back panels are moving along. I got everything stenciled and masked and airbrushed the dark green.
These are the major shapes. I'll go back in with a fine brush to tweak the details and add the finer marks.

Thanks, Don. :)

Weekends are great for making progress. I laid in the damage shapes on the back of the dome.

Then I worked on all of the SE damage.

Now I'm continuing to work my way around the dome.

I got the dent finished. :) This is my favorite part of the helmet to paint.

From here I would normally move up to the crown of the dome and paint that big scrape. But I decided to deviate a bit and start some of the SE damage on the front of the dome.

There'll be a lot more by the time I'm done!
