Well, in the light of my last work on a member's BKBT, an ominous cloud was casted over my very own, leaving me a feeling of unsatisfaction with the work I did several years ago.
Seeing what I created made me realize that I can really redo my very first prop, and the way I should have done it the first time.
Biggest issue, would be the silver. Over time, and handling, it has worn off, and you can visibly see the primer that was previously hidden.
Next thing, the ear pieces, working on them previously, over sanding the lines and angles, left them soft and rounded. Im going to work on getting some new pieces, but may have to just re-work what I have.
The visor itself is not how I would like it. Honestly, its the next biggest problem I have; it's not flush by any means. Going to fix it this time around.
Overall, Im going to be redoing the entire bucket. Some knicks and markings from my previous lack of experience with a dremel left marks on the surface, which I will now fill with bondo and restore it's original smooth form.
Notice on this one that the RF stalk is not perfectly lined up to where it needs to be in regards to where it meets the resin RF box
All the dark blemishes on the surface you see is where the Rubb and buff actually wore away. Its like this all over the helmet
