    Jul 15, 2006, 4:43 PM - MY MSH2.. It has Begun. #1

    Well, as the title says I’m finally at a place with my own Fett where I can start the painting process on my Fettpride MSH2 helmet.
    Many have asked me what my Fett looks like….and well after MANY upgrades this is it, not much I know.

    I acquired the rare MSH2 from the man himself, Fettpride, almost two years ago. After painting many side jobs, which I like to call “Practice” (thanks Guys), I have completed the first part of the painting process…the part everyone hates, the PREP work .

    My goal was to try and make a functional helmet that I could take apart when needed, and replace and upgrade things at a later date.
    I also want to create the EXACT Replica of the AOSW exhibit pics…..with all the cracks and scratches…..seeing as how I will only wear this Fett maybe once or twice…it’s basically going on a mannequin once complete.

    **So before I go any further... I want an HONEST Critique from you guys and gals…..I want to hear things that you think I need to add or change to be an Exact copy of the AOSW exhibit.

    I’ve included pics of some of the things that came with the helmet, and things that I added or built-in in trying to incorporate a workable helmet. (things we’ve all seen before)……It’s the details I’m interested in.

    SO PLEASE BE HARSH!!!

    (special thanks to EVAN4218 for providing the correct drill bits I needed to make a clean helmet, thanks bro )

    Now the Pics!!

    Awesome man! I can't wait to see how things turn out. I wish FP would make a couple more of those bad boys! The cash is just burning a hole in my pocket for an MSH2!!!!

    I'm rather curious about how you have the visor bolted in...my visor is removable because I use duct tape to hold it in, lol don't know why I decided duct tape, but mainly did that because I didn't wanna permanently put the home made visor in incase I bought BM visor or something along those lines...plus don't know if they are meant to fit in a MLC

    I'll see about posting pics....but I used a Tee Nut. You can find it at Home Depot...Size is 6-32X 1/4"...and be sure to get the corresponding screws..they're made by Crown Bolt.

    This type of "tee nut" allowed me to NOT DRILL through the helmet...
    I bonded the tee nut to the helmet with 3M Scotch Brand Welding two part mix. It's better than JB Weld...

    Again I will post pics..

    It looks like crap Spidey, total crap. Send it to me so I can dispose of it proper, in return I will send you a badly recasted mystery helmet from ebay.

    Just kidding, it looks great. Are you going to put the crack on the left (if your wearing it) side of the visor?
