LadyK has graciously allowed us to invade her house for a helmet paint work date.

I have assembled and primered the helmets white. Final fitting of the lens and earcups is still required, as well as adding the black trim and mike.

Boxes are ready to go.

We need a date to make this paint work day happen. I am NOT available on the 26/27th of May or June 1 (airbrush clinic day).

May 4 is a big troop.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
I have prepainted the helmets semi gloss Rustoleum2x white. I would highly suggest that you figure out your paint scheme now.

http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11481

Rustoleum sprays will work best over Rustoleum white I put on.

I just applied a can of Krylon Short Cuts. its less agreessive and just barely covered one helmet. Barely.

Bring a roll of 3/4" blue painters tape. You will use a LOT of tape! I have newsprint as well on a roll

Plan to spend the day working on this. Paint may dry in 20 minutes but that does not mean its ready for tape in 20 minutes. Factor in cure time for each layer of paint.

Sabeaux has the whole bag of decals that DarthHair sent. The bag is enough decals for everyone to do their helmets with. These might or might not be used as you prefer.

Please suggest a date for when we can do this.

The only free days coming up I have are April 26th and 27th. I'll be at a troop in Kenner next Saturday. Majority of May is booked with 5/4 free comic book day, 17-19th in Dallas and 24-26 in Houston. The only free weekend after that I'll have is June 1st. I won't have anything open until after June 8th.

So if any objections I recommend either the 26th or 27th

I will possibly be in Houston on the 27th of April but that is not set in stone.

I am not available the second Saturday of any month, just a heads up.
The rest of April is completely full for me.

April is just too slammed up fot me. Cyphacon next week and moving the following weekend. The second weekend of every month is bad for me as well.

I just found out I have to work on the 27th due to coworker going on vacation..... The only free day I'll have in April is Friday the 26th. May 10th and 11th my schedule is clear. Dewka, Is there a chance I can pick up my chest box from you?

D'on sure you can swing by and pick it up.

so, if Im reading this right, April is NOT looking good? Seems the majority cannot make it on the 27th.

Open to further dates?

Did y'all ever settle on a work date? I have a helmet kit I need to work on, and I'd love to do it with everyone else.

Even though my X-Wing Pilot helmet is done, I do have a TIE Pilot helmet I would like to put together with everyone. I will be available on 6/15, 6/22 and 6/29. Any of those dates good to have a helmet build Karen?
