I' still waiting for the petal foam and the mics,,,,hopefully I'll get them this coming week :wink: I have added the neck trim but this one is a temp one until I find out a more accurate one. So far these are my latest pics, previous to the weathering pass that I'm currently working on it.

Cheers

Thanks Leo, I'm glad you like it. It means a lot coming from you. Thanks to all of you guys seriosly. I'm very close to get done with this helmet and i just got another one :cheers .
I got the foam petal shape added, weathering pass in and I'm waiting for a better trim neck and a second hovi mix since one of them got crushed in the mail, i also may replace the mesh of the mics. So this are the lates pics I got. By next week I will have it fully done and I will take final pics.

Cheers

Hey... what did you use to make that weathering and how did you apply it?

The weathering looks really cool and I quite like the look with the missing mic tip, looks more realistic.

Thanks guys, I'm glad you like the weathering :salut . Actually it is very easy to do, I usually used different small pieces of neck trim. I sharpen them with a knife to get different stroke. I also used charcoal in some areas as well. If you want to to avoid the weathering to fade away you always can apply a coat of 3M protector spray for charcoal and paints. I hope this help guys.
Regarding the missing hovi mix, I'm waiting for new ones very soon, the last pair I got one of them was crushed in the mail :cry

Cheers

OK guys, this is it. I'm finally done with the background ROTJ stormtrooper and from now on I'll focus on get done the HERO one.
I recieved my tips from Vaj and they are first class tips, maybe the most accurate out there, they may need a more dense mesh but they are awesome. I also add slightly more weathering and took fianl pics, I hope you like them :salut .

Cheers
