    Yeah i sanded the whole dome andd took of the kill stripes and silver battle damage as you can see the colour of the dome was green to start, and then gave the out side a qwick spray with flat white , unfortinantly my camera was not working when i began this prodject so i could not document the first steps.

    So you've narrowed the horizontal eye part to give it the right squint. What else did you cut or trim?

ID:	46899 If you havent seen the hasbro B.F in person you might not relise how over sized the ears and the key slots are and the obvious massive vizor the small lower cheaks and the back plate half an inch to long so out of the $95 That the lid cost me im only using about $25 worth the rest is going in the bin.
    Any way im starting to paint to day still cant deside witch version to do but am leaning towards ESB.

    Check under "".
    There's 2 pics on page 5 of the "Pre-Pro3" page.

    There are a few more floating around also. One is from a promo shoot and two or three more of it all busted up sitting on a dusty shelf in the LFL Archives with a couple others.

    BTW, I've always had a softspot for the Sandy even with all of it's wicked fuggliness.

    Right, it's hard to see where the actual paintjob ends and the wear and tear begins. It's definately the black sheep, odd man out of the original six helmets.
