    I used crazy glue like marrow sun and very small screws. I was able to find screws just for this purpose at hobby lobby.
    I'm still undecided what type of glue I should use. My Foam is paint finish
    but when I install the foam into my MS helmet it looks a bit tight. I guess
    that's the way it should be since I didn't apply the glue yet. It seems like
    I might have to use a stronger type of glue to keep the foam down.

    Are most of you using Krazy Glue?....& does it really work? Any suggestions
    will be really appreciated.

    Not to change the subject or anything but I'm also changing my faceshield
    to Green instead of smoked. What type of glue did most of you used to install or replace the faceshield.
    Thanks!

    yeah, crazy glue worked for me really well. I used screws so I could take it out If I wanted to.

    I forgot to ask you MC,
    Screws? I'm just trying to picture it. I don't want to ruin my MS
    Helmet....by drilling holes?

    Unless you bought a set under another name on the board I don't recall selling you a set of these foam pieces?! Maybe New years was too hard on my brain

    there are those with an amazing interior

    there are those with basic interiors

    there are those that have stunning exteriors so the interior is often disregarded.

    and then there are those, with no helmet.


    this is extremely cool, i commend you

    Re: Let's see your MS bucket interiors!!!

    I'm about to start my interior installation and was wondering if there is any cleaning of the foam that is necessary for paint to stick?

    I'm going to be using the same Polly scale/Floquil paints I painted the bucket with which are all acrylic.

    Thanks guys,
    Steve

    Well the parts are pretty clean out of the mold, but with anything that is to be painted I quick wipe to remove the dust isn't a bad idea.
    Remember guys, you must use acrylic paints, enamel paint will crack too easy with any flexing.
    Also you should be able to use KRYLON spray paint. I'm not going to guarantee that, try it on a small spot first, but the pieces being sent out have been prepainted with krylon.

    Does stay still on your head? I mean I am considering ordering that part with teh kit, but if its uncomfortable and makes the helmet move around on your head, I don't want it. Lol.

    Its comfortable but it does slide around. My suggestion is to get it with this part and try it out.If you dont like it you can remove it.

    Fantastic installation DM

    I'm working on mine now....I've got some real cool custom ideas that I'm incorporating into the overall final design. I'm combining my own ideas with MS's kit.....I can't wait to get it done and show off my work here....it's taking a while though.....lots of work

    I'm proably not going to go that route. I figure guys will be using hardhat liners still or they can custom fit there own foam piece or sponge for their forehead. If I made something it might not fit everyones heads the same.

    That's cool DL44! Looks good.
    Does anyone have pictures of the inside of Boba's helmet? I don't have any, or know how to paint the interiors to look correct. Thanks.

    the actual screen used Boba fett helmet doesnt have an interiour. the interiour came from the Riddle mini helmet & Marrow Sun was kind enough to make a life sized replica of that interiour. i dont know of any interiour riddle helmet pictures on the board right now

    Thanks, BFS1. I have the MS interiors, but I've never seen the Riddell interiors. Also I thought possibly one of the Star Wars books out there might have had a cross section or something like I've seen for the Stormtrooper helmet. If anyone has pics of the mini helmet interior or something from a Star Wars book that would be cool.

    The mini helmet interiors are essentially the same thing.
