Hey guysI just wanted to add couple of the screenshots of the helmet i have been working on and off last few months. I still need to add a weathering pass, add straps, cut the bubble lenses to fit better on the interior...oh yes and the petal foam, then do a decent photoshoot. I might need to do some structure changes so i will update the post with new pics
I hope you like guys so far. BTW everything is hand painted. I also would like to thanks Paul for his imputs and such a great kit :salut

Cheers

Thanks guys... I currently reworked the face mask position to make it look more accurate. I will post pics by the end of the week. I pushed in backwards the mask to create a gap between the cap and back forehead and the mask face so the brow looks kind floating. In order to do that I had to remove one of the blue stripe on the left side since the ear-cap was taking that space. I hope also by then i will get the weather pass on it

Hey Carsten the display where the helmet is on is an old SDS suit :rolleyes

Cheers

A

Ok guys, after months with no time to finish this helmet I finally got some time to re-position the face-plate, so consequently I had to remove and repaint the blue stripes on the left side. Now that I feel more comfortable I will be adding a light weathering pass. In the meantime some new pictures with the progress.

Cheers

Amazing! Just Amazing!
I'm so lucky that TM has almost completed my full ANH armour with the same Hero helmet.
Can't wait to display it in my movie room on my bendy Mannequin.
I would love to wear it but i am "far to short to be a Stormtrooper"
