    Oct 12, 2008, 9:41 PM - some new pics of my old bucket.... #1

    I had hte camera downstairs and though "Hey, I want soem new shots of my bucket"

    befoe, it had no weathering.. now, I scraped some of the black paint off of it to show the navy blue underneath..... Meant to use black originally, but I grabbed the wrong can of Krylon





    the "cuts" are actually carved in with an old knife I found in the garage.

    the base helmet is actually a Rubies latex helmet.... I shaped the bottom with a coat hanger and installed some bike helmet padding inside.
    I tossed the "visor" made of saran wrap and put black mesh in place of a T-visor to aid in breathability.
    the RF was hand-painted, and hte small green spot on the screen is a really small print-out of the RF screencap in "Star Wars: Bounty Hunter"

    ever since I got my mando armor wearable back in May of '06, I wanted to get some decent shots.... ta-dah

    I want to eventually revisit my mando and rebuild it with sintra like it should've been originally... no more linoleum

    Grab yourself a t-visor.com standard visor for your rubies bucket and cut out all that plastic on the visor area. Painting isn't bad at all, I like the claw marks. =)

    I agree with NovallTalon Get you a better t-visor. IT WILL MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE! plus hyperventilating is half the fun!

    Yup,

    Get rid of the visor for a real one, and get rid of that awful black electrical tape on top of the bucket.

    the lectric tape is to hide where the masking tape messed up over the kill stripes.... there's was a bit too much green/yellow showing, and I didn't want top remask it for another paint, so I cheated

    I'll get a new visor and remove the tape soon
