    Thanks, guys! Got a pretty good update today. . .

    I finished up the cheeks and have laid down the red. :D

    But I know you're not really here for the words. You want pics! Always with the pics. . . lol
    Here are a couple of front angles.

    The red reads a little vibrant in these shots. Once the helmet is complete I'll put up my usual gallery of shots using my lightbox,
    so things will look more like they do by eye.

    Here's the rear.

    I'll begin the damage on the red areas tomorrow.

    Thanks, guys! I kind of forgot to take pics during the final stages, lol. But the helmet is done now. :D
    Here's a gallery of final pics.

    It was excellent to do another PP1! I've always been a Pre-Pro fan and it's very satisfying to have another one out in the wild. Thanks to everyone who followed along, and to Tennantlim for trusting me with his helmet! Hope you enjoy having it in your collection.

    This is going to be my second Fett helmet, with a third one in the works, and what a beauty it is! Thank you so much for the constant updates and for producing such an amazing looking helmet. I look forward to receiving it soon!

    In all seriousness, the combination of Nino's remarkably sharp casts and Eric's crazy awesome paintwork makes this helmet an absolutely priceless addition to my budding collection.

    Thanks! My set up is actually incredibly simple; black paper background, a large reflector and sunlight. I shoot with a Nikon D800E and 50mm f/1.8, then processed through Lightroom.

    Beautiful collection!

    Can't wait to see the set up once you get your ROTJ!

    Wow ... you are really on a Bucket spree Tennant! Love Eric's work and your photography is pretty impressive, I can't believe it's just with black paper background, thought it would have been a lightbox kind of set up. Looking forward to see your new ROTJ bucket!

    Thanks guys. You should see Eric's collection. That was the motivating factor for me to start on mine.
