Key slots have been filed out.  Tedious, but another character building exercise on this one.

In other news, ordered my flighsuit, neckseal, and vest from arkady.  Also picked up some other odds and ends that you'll see pictures of soon enough. 

**EDIT**

A new toy showed up in the mail today. :)





This will help me figure out how much I'm going to spend on this build!    :laugh:

In all honestly, I'm debating on whether I should take it apart and use the correct greeblies or just hold onto it. Sort of a neat little device.

Ok, Finally got this paint job underway.

Primed!


Going to start with the back panels as that's where other people start lol.


Got the basic shape of the RLM 73 traced out using rafalfett's stencil's from TDH.


Masked.  Love the humbrol masking fluid.


Left Panel


Right Panel

I misted on the green and went back after the initial coat to darken some areas around the border of the damage to make it appear uneven.  I was pretty happy with the results.

Skip ahead a few steps





Couple things left to do here before I start airbrushing on some of the main colors.

I also got my flak vest, flightsuit, leather belt and pouches, girthbelt, etc...

ESB EE-3 from Stormrider

Held together by gravity here, but you get the idea.  Waiting on some electronics from Raestin's workshop before I dive into the blasters.

Really well done! Those back panels are a nightmare, but you pulled them off very nicely.

Nice build Mi'ix! Be sure to assemble that SR kit correctly/ accurately. EE-3s are tricky little girls.

It's spelled "Canon", not "Cannon".

Had some time this evening after Trick-or-treaters to add the black to the inner cheeks and do the green on the dome and lower cheeks. Looks a bit odd in these pictures, but I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

Can't quite decide if I'll airbrush the red or start adding some of the damage to the cheeks/dome topically.

We have red!  Well, mainly insignia red mixed with black until I was happy with it.







Also, ear caps! 

The middle part of the yellow cap has since been painted the metal color.  I wanted to get all the major airbrushing out of the way for this one before I start the topical stuff on the cheeks and dome!

Finished the back of the dome last night.  I think instead of continuing work around the rest of the dome, I'll need to put the kill stripes on there since I have to fit some silver damage into the stripes.  We'll see. More airbrushing for me!

It's time for killstripes! 

Masked off, which took a little bit.


Added the reefer yellow.


I then misted very carefully insignia red over the yellow until I had the desired fade.


Peeled off!


Now I can start on the silver and gray damage on this side of the helmet. :)

A long weekend means some more time to work on Boba!


Dent and scrape.  Pre adhesive marks and thumb print.


Mixture for the adhesive mark.  Base of white mixed with Panzer Olive Grun.


Adhesive marks on!


Cat scratch with some of the other damage added to the other side of the dome.  Still have to do the grease stains and finger print, but we're getting there.  I was actually thinking of moving on to the ears because I've put those off long enough.
