I don't think I've ever seen this discussed, and I'm not sure how to proceed with my bucket...
1) At what point do you guys attach your ears to your bucket? It seems like the helmet is painted by itself, and I assume the ears are added after (fully painted, I assume).
2) How tightly do the ears mate to the helmet? Should there be visible seams, or do you putty in the seams to make the ears look to e part of the helmet?
3) Do you sand the backs of the ears completely flat, as well as the mating section on the helmet?
If you could post closeups illustrating the answers to these questions, I'd really appreciate it!
