    Meh.
    Got a nice shiny box with a nice shiny set of Bobamaker shoulder and knee armour and a visor.



    The curve of the visor seemed JUST wrong for the bucket - Luckily, a few minutes in the oven at 250*C pretty much completely flattened and flopsified the visor, so it now fits slightly better.
    Still got gaps of a mm or two in some areas, though.

    I think I'll use some 20part epoxy goo to fill them - I just hope it's strong enough to hold the two pieces together! The visor's held in place currently by some pieces of Milliput.


    And now I go to attach the pics that were the main reason for me starting this thread, I find that my camera's gone wonky and recorded the pics as black and purple "noise".
    Meh. I better go try to find out why...

    If anyone has any suggestions for remedying my gap problem in the meantime, feel free to post

    When you say gaps is this blemishes in the helmet? Would sanding the affected area not be suffice? I had the same problem when installing a BM visor into my MS lid, the curve was spot on but needed a slight bit of sanding to make a true fit.

    Not blemishes in the helmet, really... - The visor doesn't sit flush with the mandibles - Not at all points, anyway.
    It's hard against it at the temples, and chin, but at the bridge of the "nose", there's a few milimetres of space between the helmet and the visor.
