    Well, i'm thinking of getting a MH and was wondering if anyone wanted to show theirs off? Boba's & Jango's. Also, i have a question, i'm a complete novice with using bondo (Haven't used it at all) and was wondering if i should still get one? I would love to make it either a Boba or a Jango and need some advice. I know these kits need a bit of work.

    Really appreciate any help. Now show me your buckets! lol

    btw Neil - u prob worked this out already, closest thing to bondo I can find is Isopon 38 at Halfords.
    I've already used some on a E-11 blaster and some armour to cover seam lines. 2 bits of advice I got abt using bondo/isopon was

    (1) less is more
    (2) it dries quick (5-15 min kinda quick)

    sands easier than Milliput to a very nice finish; but I think Isopon is meant to be a little nasty - have a face mask and gloves ready. I also had some white spirit handy when I was using it with my E-11 to loosely "sculpt" stuff into it. Never used the stuff before, quickly got used to it. Now that I have discovered it, wondering why I havent used it more in the past to repair my car! rofl!!

    soz got nothing on a MH. Although being on this side of the Atlantic - I have been staring far to long at a bobamaker lid.

    Cheers for that Nate think i'll have to give that ago if i get an MH, not used bondo or anything like that before though so will be completely new to me. I know what you mean about Bobamaker, very impressive work.

    Darrell, you know i love your MH, lol.

    The more i think about it, the more this kit sounds like it might be a bit much for my skills. Not used bondo, fiberglass or anything like it before so would be worried about messing it up.

    Heres mine complete. This was my first bucket dont worry about messing up you can fix it with bondo and filler... the only thing you really ahve to do with the new casts is sand the mandablies down prior to paint.

    Gbeef, that is amazing! One of the best paint jobs i've seen! Very well done. Is it all MH? By that, i mean is all of it, apart from the RF stalk, an MH?

    How tough are these MH's aswell? I want mine for display but don't want it breaking on me.

    Gbeef -- how did you escape security once you smashed the glass case and ran off with the AOSW helmet?

    Yeah the bucket is MH i got this one directly from fang himself.... im still on the look out for a FPH... id love to get my gubby hands on another helmet when i have time.

    The stalk is BKBK and the RF i made it.. kinda getto but i needed a hollow RF that could fit a tilt switch. ASOW had some for sale but i think i missed out.

    DOHH!!!..
