Mar 18, 2007, 9:47 PM - My First Helmet!
Here's some shots of the helmet I'm working on. Honestly, I wasn't really satisfied with it since the inside was filled with spiky fiberglass. Plus, the details were pretty blobby to say the least.
Also, the thing is DAMN heavy. Maybe, I'll just use this as a display helmet on my mannequin. But so far, I've been able to sand, putty, etc this thing to the way I want it. No way to fix the weight though. Still alot of work to do on this though (more sanding, plus the mandibles are kinda too thick).
Anyhow, here's some pics:

Thanks guys. I think I may have the gray marks on the dome a bit too dark. I'll post some pics of it when I get home from work.

Well, I've got just about the main part of the helmet all painted. All I need to work on is the back bottom of the helmet plus the ears and rangefinder (still waiting to get those from Sgt Fang).
I plan on taking higher res pics of it in the future, but here's how it looks so far (along with my new buddy, Masterpiece Megatron). I like it. Not exactly screen accurate but enough to look good for me.
