Just found this web page the other day and to say theres a bounty's worth of reading is an undertstatement! I have been using the search engine but wanted to double check some things:
First, a DP95 is pretty much the best CHEAP helmet? I got one in Dec 95. Stripped and repainted it, but After seeing Mobius' in another thread, THATS how I want mine to look!!
Second, The best way to paint the armor is to give it a good base of Rub and Buff chrome? Where do I find it? It works on the vynil DP helmet?(can't afford a Mystery at this time).
Speaking of metal base coats, has anyone trid a metal paint called Alcad?
And finally, I would like to do a Jango helmet just to put it next to my BF. Would one of the current off the shelf helmets do-just to display one(repainted of course)?
Built my BF armor in 99, using info from the Build Your Own Boba Fett page. Made from mostly vacformed styrene. Jumpsuit made by a woman I work with(she's so cool, she made it for free using a pattern for work coveralls) Don't have the build to wear it. will try to attach a picture. Have a mannequin to display it on and want to restore it using the info at this site.
