First up, the helmet:









Donut is a TK-560 kit, helmet is a Costumebase. After I assembled the donut, I spray painted it silver, let it dry for 2 days, then gave it a coat of Moss Green. After 30 minutes drying, I lighty "sand-paper" with a pot scubbing foam brick to get the silver undercoat to show through scratches. Couple spots I just attached and peeled small bits of tape (ala wax-removal style, course the donut didn't scream...)

Off to a good start! What I did to the Costumebay clothes was get the dark green (forget the name) floral paint from Michaels and spray over the yellow and white parts. It will improve it tremendously. You don't need the yellow-
Check my pics, they were once costumebay...
There's also a lighter shade of floral spray green at Michaels too, you can go over your bright green as well.

These paints will overall darken the overall garment much more in tune to the Endor Commandos-

Pretty much what I've done, except I concentrated more on the large amount of white fabric between the colors. I'm thinking if this weekend is sunny enough I'm gonna hit the yellows with more green.

that's what happens when you have too many 4 day weekends and not enough LEGOs to play with....

Should have the bandolier finished this weekend. Here's some WIPs:
















And I got my Bunker Buster finished. And it just fits inside a army surplus canteen cover.
