    The helmet cracked 3-4 cm along the wavy brow, leaving a hole about one cm wide. I found the main four pieces that broke off and glued them back in place, added filler around the rest and in between the worst cracks, and sanded it smooth, trying not to mess up too much of the paint outside the damage. Then I repainted the damaged area, looking at photos and trying to match the original colours as closely as I could.

    The cracks in the corners were really not that visible, the fiber glass holds it together really well. (BM makes one sturdy helmet!) I settled with brushing some "Tamiya weathering master" into the thin cracks. In a way I was lucky and it could have been a lot worse.

    Wow, sorry to hear about the accident. That's one beautiful display you have there. Hopefully you can piece it all back together just fine.

    Woh!!! That is an amazing display!! That is heartbreaking that your mannequin fell over....I freaked when my helmet fell two feet and barely chipped. I can't even imagine what you are feeling!!!

    Thanks for cheering me up! Unless you know exactly where the helmet cracked, it's difficult to spot the repaired area. It still bothers me, but I can live with it. Fett is still alive.

    The praise should be going to BM, his work is outstanding.

    Buddy, your Fett looks great, may I ask, did BM do the paint job also or did you do it yourself?

    BM did the paintjob on all his own parts, except the shin tools.

    The stand is just the way it came with the mannequin (You can see it in the pic of the naked mannequin further up). I just made a print out on glossy photo paper of the Star Wars logo and 'Boba Fett' in yellow text on a black background. Nothing fancy, but looks OK I think.
