    I made this paint job with only paint cans. Is not the best finish, and does not compare with professional paint jobs, but being my first time, I think is not bad.

    Sorry low quality images.

    That's a great paintjob ... if you allow me, let me assist you with an improved version of your picture to show us all :)

    Thanks for all the comments.
    I will install lenses and other accessories to take pictures in daylight.

    I don't know, I bought it from a friend, he told me that he bought on Ebay. Many people have told me it's a SPFX.

    Thats turned out amazing! I got a ROTJ kit and it just came in last week. How did you set the dome? every helmet I've dealt with already has the mounting system or mounting ring on the dome.
