Kainrath’s Black Series Helmet Modification

Decided to try modifying my Black Series Boba Fett helmet…
I neglected to take a before picture of the helmet before I started working on it.

So beautiful! Astounding job getting everything weathered and realistic, and the silver looks so much like real metal.  :like:

Definitely looks sweet. I just hope you don’t plan on applying for approval with that helmet. It will get kicked back because you didn’t fill in the dent in the dome.

That's beautiful work.

But Tramp is right about the dent. The rebreather looks a bit tall, as well, more than 2/3rds.

The weathering is great, but the others are correct, if you are looking to get approved with this helmet the dent would need to be filled in and the rebreather is too tall and is in violation of the new helmet visor ruling, 2/3s of the vertical area of the T-visor needs to be visible.
you did a great job with the paint, with good attention to detail.
