Larson Protector WIP
« on: Aug 29, 2020, 06:44 PM »
Hello! Been painting up a helmet for awhile now so thought I start doing the rest of it too! I’ll try my best to post here so any mistakes I make can be corrected. Anyone interested in seeing it as it happens I do post more frequently on my Instagram account Vutycfett.

Helmet

For the helmet I took a lot of inspiration from the Pre-Pro #1 and 2 Boba Fett helmet. It’s also a 3D printed helmet from MakerBak3D.
Here is how I got the helmet.


Following is me masking and painting.
I first started by painting the whole helmet silver.



Next I started with the back panels first. I layered majority of the back. I did silver then a grey and then green as the last layer.






Next I started with the top of the dome with a similar layering of colors.






Next I did the checks!



After the checks I did the mandibles. I did a tropical approach on this to practice instead of layering.




Around this time I also completed the ears!



Now I am just working on adding some killstipes and then some ears like the Pre-Pro helmet.

I always love to see some pre-production love on these kits.

Added some slight weathering to the helmet! Now maybe just a clear coat to seal it all up.

Looking good, my man!

Looks like you got some 3D print lines in your keyslot area there. 

Make sure you get that smoothed out before you clear coat!

Definitely can do that! I didn’t originally cause I liked how it looked. Would I be required to do that for it to pass approval?

Yeah, that is something that needs to be smoothed out.

Easy peasy though. It's a flat surface and one you can easily tape off to stop paint from getting on the rest of your helmet.
