    Dec 20, 2004, 10:16 PM - Noob Bucket (fixed link) #1

    this is my first helmet and it was made from a rubies. It wasnt until I was almost done with the helmet that someone told me about this site, but if not for everyones tips and ideas that thing would have been dumpster-bound, anyways the info here has been invaluable. It's acutally not completly done, I have the 9 little rectangles to put on the right ear and i have to finish the inside, Im spraying the inside with truckbed liner and then im installing a hard hat liner and a few pads on the sides to keep it from moving around. thx all, tell me wht you think, and be honest, I want to hear some helpful tips for my next one, which wont be a rubies of course.

    yeah man, looks good! The only thing for next time I would suggest is to dull the shine on the paint, by lightly sanding it, to just make the colors more matte, so the silver scratches pop a little more. Awesome work though!

    Same as Sithlord...Looks good, but a little too shiny. Could be the camera flash though. Mine looks shiny when I take pictures of it, but it doesn't in person.

    Great first time effort!
