    3rd times a charm

    dsc03985-jpgdsc03989-jpgdsc03988-jpgthis is my most recent lid ive been makeing ive used 1 of my previous lids actualy the buck i made for my last lid and cut it all up back to singel peices then cut them down heated and bent them then reatached then and the same with the ears i basicly just trimed them in parts and added to them in other all ear peices are seperate i added the micro cut out and imm going to make the mounting system the same as the real ears also thats a real borden conector im going to cut them up so i can turn it around as per to get the corect look, thats the same paint in direct sun light and in the shade it realy makes a big diffrents, my batteris are dead in my cam so i couldnt take comparisons of this lid with my previous 2 but it imo is alot closer than ive gotten before/
    Any way id like to know what you guys think its hard to judge youre own build each time i think ive nailed it then i see all the things not right and remake another 1

    It look's nice, But in the first pic the bottom of the visor is a bit bent inwards, is it supposed to be bent like that?

    If a range finder was attached to the helmet would it be able go up and down? and how much would the shipping be if it was shipped to shanghai and/or the u.s?

    Re: 3rd times a charm

    I'm quite interested, So can you hold onto it for as long as possible? I'm still trying to figure out a way to tell my parents that I'm part of this community, If I do it the right way I might be able to get their permission to get the helmet, So if you can hold onto it until I tell them, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Re: 3rd times a charm

    I have a question or two, You know that bump looking thing on the right cheek? What is it? And what are the arrows on the dome for?

    Re: 3rd times a charm

    the bump i asume you mean the borden conector thats just a part of the boba style helmet its actualy a peice from a dental drill ans the arows are on both boba and jango helmets its realy just a desing to fill up some blank space realy all these parts are as they apear on the real boba helmet

    the toy boba is a hasbro and is there for reference

    Re: 3rd times a charm

    Array -- you are also only 14, and the helmet is made for an adult. You still have more growing to do

    Re: 3rd times a charm

    bud i hate to say this but where the dome meets the ring its not enough of a difference...it looks more like an indentation than a separate peice

  25. #25

    Re: 3rd times a charm

    The last one i did it was way to far out there,
    Im really just working from photos here but in my defence i realy think those pics make it look less prominent i used a trim of plastic thats about 1.5 mls thick so it should stik out enough.(i hope) and theres no indent so i guess thats an optical ilusion
