    Mar 6, 2009, 1:47 PM - OOPS!! #1

    Well, I don't know what to say.
    Except that this gives me more incentive to start on my newly acquired FPH.
    Apparently I didn't have the head on my mannequin secured tightly enough and over a period of the last few months the head slowly started to come loose, and eventually just broke off all together. When I woke up I noticed that the helmet was on the floor but didn't really think much of it considering I was still half-asleep. Then I picked it up and noticed that visor was falling out when I noted the giant crack on the left brow of the mandible. The good news is with a little Gorilla glue I can make his look like the helmet displayed at C4 and the AoSW!!

    Oh, ok ... just re-read it Whew. But wow man, I am sorry to see that !!! If it's FG, I can fix it for you without damaging the paint job anymore. Just LMK. The same thing happened to me in 2003. Only the whole cheek came off

    Really?? You'd do that? You think maybe you set the visor back in place for me too? For some reason I have the hardest time getting it set into place. I've probably set and re-set it about 5 times and it always pops back out. Grrrrr....

    Ouch! Though I would much rather take that break on the mandable, instead of the dome. It will be easier to repair without noticing it
