    8) The visor looks great... The whole thing looks great... :thumbup

    you could adjust the colour of the visor depenting on the day. (lighter for the night, darker for a real sunny day..)

    That would indeed make a nice gift for let's say, my birthday?!?!?


    UPDATE:

    Doesn't look like a lot of progress, but the details on the back are driving me LOOOOOOONEY!!! Here's a few shots before I hit the sack:









    I don't know how some of you guys do the paint job so quick and accurate. That is truely awesome to me!
    For now, my eyes and myself desperately need to have a rest!

    Laterrrr!

    All I can say is that the helmet looks incredible! The shape of the dome is dead on. The paintwork speaks for itself.

    Buy me time and I will make you an army of those! Sorry dude, this ol' bucket is taking up all of my spare time. Cool idea for a cossie, what is it called?


    UPDATE:

    I think I finished the back section. Holy pepperoni! All the intricate detail drove me insane (I probably wasn't to far away from that to begin with ) and all that late night painting almost made me go blind. But it's done! Well... except for the weathering/tone wash. But that shouldn't be as difficult as the paintjob.
    Anyways, here's a load of pictures I took during the day. Enjoy!

















    Triangles all rusty 'n' dusty; inspired by SpideyFett's paintjob for JB:






















































    Proof it's really cardboard:



    Checking the time on the Old Church:



    Last one for today:









    Next up is to start some work on the dome. Should be tricky enough... the shape being round and all. Hard to pinpoint the damage. But what the hey. I've come this far!

    Back soon!

    Hmmm..... but whom would be interested in this ol' bucket?


    UPDATE:

    It's been a little while but here are some progress shots from my latest crafting.
    Before painting up the dome, I decided it was time to think about the MQ-1 circuit board. I figured, since I comitted to cardboard for this project, I have to stick to that. And so I did (once again).
    First off, I printed out the very helpful template by W:thumbupF. The detail on the MQ-1 panel is also quite challengeing. But once it is placed behind the key slots, not much of that is going to show so I guessed I could cut myself some slack and make it less detailed. Here's what I came up with, see for yourself:


    First I drew out the main board and started on the CPU with all the connectors:



    Next the resistor units and the board slits:



    More detail; daylight shot:



    Here's where I put on the connectors between the upper and lower part of the circuit board; and also punched some holes and slits and finished the lower part (I like the details on the screw):






    And finally a comparison shot of the final piece:





    That should be good enough to install behind the keyslots. After I seal, primer and paint it up ofcourse!

    Let me know what you think.

    Greetings from Delft,
    Peter

    Peter, I'm glad you started this project, I'm happy you're sharing your progress with us, and I'm just really impressed with your talent and execution.

    That MQ-1 board comparison picture is a wonderful example of how the free flow of information, tips and encouragement here can yield great results, and be an inspiration to others.

    that misspelled "bukcet" in the title I would be happy



    UPDATE:

    To be able to install the board behind the keyslots, I built a box type of thingy to fit around it. Here's what I mean, look:



    Next I primered and painted the MQ-1 board:






    To be glued on the inside of the helmet. Now you see it..... :



    .....and now you don't:



    Rear view:















    That's it, for now.
    Please forgive me for sort of "over-posting" with pics, but I assume that images say more than words

    Thanks for looking and
    until next time.

    Hello Antman! Since you kindly replied to my thread, I am returning the favor. You are a great artist and have the most impressive Boba-lid in my opinion. I have a small question: In the WOF templates, what is the long piece that says "Inner Surface" on it used for? Do you think it is necessary? Thank you!

    It's been a while since the last update of this thread, but finally here is some news. Be it not so good, or......... see for yourself.



    I've been wanting to finish the paint job on this cardboard build but somehow I got stuck due to lack of proper reference material (CD templates) and time. And in the mean time I decided to start a second build, which also kind of put this one in second place. Still I felt obligated to finish this, as I owe it to many of you out there following my progress. So one day I said to myself "Just work with what you can find on TDH and put in some personal touches." First I had to clear my mind and took the CAT-CAT for a walk around the block:



    Unsuspecting anything I just let CAT do his business...



    But what light through yonder alley breaks? Surprise! My very own unaltered clone gave me a scare!



    He put on the unfinished helmet and snuck upon good old pops:



    Hah! Trying to scare the old man huh? Well..... it worked a litlle bit... all good fun....



    .....'till DISASTER struck!!! He accidentally tripped and fell, with the helmet on!!



    ***!



    Oh NO!!



    As if it couldn't get any worse, he just kept spinning and rolling.....D'OOOOOOH!!!!



    I dare not look how this ends!



    All that hard work. building and painting.... crimony! Praying that the damage will not be critical!



    Huh?! What's that I feel with my feet?



    Oh no...oh no....OH NOOOO!!!



    BOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! WHY ME!!!??!!
    (notice that my kid is also in agony)



    Sniff.... hey.....wait a second........huh?.....



    No.....it can't be.....



    Look at this!! Goodness gracious!



    It's damaged, but unbelievably in all the right places! It is a MIRACLE!!!!



    YEAH! Fortune be with us!!! Good job son!!!



    Hugs and kisses!! WOOHOOOOO!!!!



    A thourough examination of the helmet damage revealed that the newly added scratches are exactly placed in the correct area's. Sort of. This is incredible. This saves me a lot of paintwork!



    So here it finally is, my interpretation and tribute to the WOF templates, the Count Dookie paint schemes and all of TDH's freely shared information on the Boba Fett helmet, "enriched" with a few of my personal touches.




    Eventhough it is not screen accurate (dislocated dent, a bit too small of a dome, etc.), I am proud to have built this first lid. And I enjoyed sharing the progress here on TDH! Thank you all for your wonderfull comments and constructive criticism!
