    This is one of Darth Hair's kit. I hope I do it justice.

    Those are nice helmets. I need to get one.

    Tell us your paint choices! I have done Biggs, Wedge and Gold leader but I am too chicken to try Luke. I am never satisfied with my choices.

    Nicely done so far!

    Where can I get one of those and how much is it? Never heard of Darth Hair's!

    Very nice. I have always wanted to give this helmet a shot.

    Just about ready to start weathering. Before starting this project I never notice there was a black outline around the rebel symbol.
    The decal supplied by Darth Hair does not have that out line.
    Where can I get the right decal?

    You should have received two sets. a set of red ones and a slightly larger set of black ones.
    it's a two layer effect. Look at his videos on youtube for a tutorial on putting them on.

    Awesome. Did you find the larger black rebel symbols to do a double layer? or did you get these from somewhere else?

    Trent, I just emailed Darth Hair I did not have the black decals and the next day he mailed me few.

    Thanks Mugatu.
