Hey thanks, but I wouldn't be half as far along without your help.

So I have a lot of vacation to burn before the end of the year, so thought I'd work on my helmet today.

Here's the pic of the final paint job with clear coat, before weathering.







To be honest, I was kind of afraid to start the weathering, just in case I botched it. But I went ahead with Darth Hair's method of water, acrylic paint, and dish soap in a cup. Paint it on, then blot it off pretty quick. Also hitting it with a quick swath of black spraypaint over the soapy water leaves a pretty cool effect.





So far, looks awesome I think. Going to let this dry, clear coat it, and then give it another go.

While decidedly not movie-accurate, I whipped this up real quick too. With Halloween coming up next week, I really wanted to be able to carry that resin cast lightsaber on my belt.

The lightsaber is no graflex for sure, but I won't mind banging it around.



With a quick test fit, I'm pretty happy with the length:

Finished my weathering today, and decided to actually charge up my SLR to take some better pics.

Thanks everybody! It made for an easy 1st place trophy at our company Halloween costume party.




I'm definitely bit by the bug though. Been hard at work on my TK since my kit arrived just before Christmas.

Now that I've been on 5 or so troops, thought I'd add a couple pictures with the finished product. Thanks again to everyone who helped me make this happen!
