    Hey all!

    I've got an RS Boba Fett helmet coming from RS (hopefully soon) and am curious if there are any recommendations for airbrush kits including compressor. I plan on going water based as well.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Trevor

    You should check this out:
    Www.thedentedhelmet.com
    In the Helmet section, you'll find a wide variety of tutorials, tools, techniques, and templates. Get yourself the cheapest single action airbrush with a big glass reservoir. Badger makes one for about $30 USD. It's the same kind that was used on set. As well, get yourself some Humbrol Maskol, a liquid frisked or masking fluid. You can apply it using a rubber tipped 'colour shaper' brush. Not all the details can be airbrushed on, so a couple fine tipped paintbrushes will be handy. Finally, depending on the level of detail you want to get, you may want to trace the templates right onto the helmet, so pick up some Saral transfer paper.

    Sorry, I have no recommendation on the compressor.
