    Hey guys,
    Finally decided to start a W.I.P thread for my boba helmet- it's....hideous to say the least right now, I've still got alot of sanding to do ha ha. What I intend to do with this helmet is set it to when boba has freshly painted his own armor. It's in one of the books when anakin is helping him repair Slave I- It is just before episode 3... I can't remember as I haven't read the book for a few years now. I shall be filling in the dent- the Jango dent is BS in my opinion- boba's dent is original. I'll be filling the dent and any imperfections I accidently did when using the dremel *awkwardly rubs back of neck*. SO anyway... here are some shots of how ugly it is now... not for the faint of heart- look away now if you can't sleep easily...

    Lighting is **** in my room at night and had to use windows phone [​IMG]

    I have yet to see this done but I be watching to see how this turns out for sure. You have a bit of work ahead of you

    That depends how good a painter Boba is.

    He might suck at it.

    It's just dark red mandibles, mist green dome and cheeks- a black/blue shade for the secondary cheeks, and a brunswick green for the back plate and a dark red for the keyslots- still working out for ears

    EDIT: Just finished sanding the bondo on the dent- nice and smooth now :) just gotta sand the drill holes on the mandibles
