    Actualy I have no idea why he would tape a flashlight and a walky talky where the paint would be removed, i'm assuming the outside part of the helmet?

    I'm honestly confused.

    really? this reply is totally sarcasm free. i honestly did not find it to be so when i first joined. people only started being friendly and helpful to me once i already had a complete fett and didn't really *need* the help anymore :-/

    He is just saying that you could come up with a cool helmet idea by adding different things other than the standard stalk and RF, kinda like the marine helmets from alien, or the starship trooper helms.Maybe a camera on the side or a built in light(not taped ,but made to look like it is part of it.I really dig customs, and would really like to see and idea like this.
    My god give him some slack, as he sounds young, and is just trying to come up with a cool custom idea.
    Not everyone is anal when it comes to a costume.
    Keep truckin along with your ideas sponge, hell you may one day create a helmet that people will slobber over.

    Mr. Sponge, a flashlight on the bucket sounds good, and the walkie talkie for communication too. You are going to need to really secure the visor so that a BB doesn't come through and hit your eyes. I would suggest getting a walkie talkie with an external headset. That way you can talk and be heard , but you don't have another piece of equipment strapped to your helmet making your head a bigger target. Again, be careful with BB's. Doctor's can't replace eyes yet, so take care of the only 2 you've got.

    Oh, summing else, wot you say to us Yanks may need translation if it resembles Cockney rhyming slang. Apples and pairs.

    Just a reminder for the Brits-
