    Here's what I've been up to over the summer. I turned this:

    I dremeled out the dent, altered the range finder and right ear piece, and my awesome girlfriend sculpted a borden dental connector for the cheek. The visor is a t-visor.com. I painted it with the layered method using Stormtrooperguy's rattlecan list. I still have to do some more topical weathering to do and I've yet to paint the arrows on the forehead. Then I'll seal it down with some matte coat.

    It's not the greatest bucket in the world but I'm certainly proud of it

    Awesome job!!! This is going to be my next project. I'm going to try my hand at converting the Jango deluxe bucket.

    Thanks for all of the positive comments! I really enjoyed modding this helmet. It's fun and rewarding turning a hunk o' junk into something more. I think next I'll tackle the 2 Rubies 2-piece or the Hasbro toy helmet.
