    I'm with you on that one, I'll be very carefull not to take away any of the existing shape...just tidy it up.

    I hope that any imperfections except for the obvious air bubble are left unmodified. We've seen it time and time again when people "clean up" original pieces only to find out they were supposed to be like that.
    If any of this is ever made available, i'd love to get a set.

    I have now finished cleaning up the RF housing and Stalk. The picture below shows how it now looks when held in position on the helmet.

    I will now need to make moulds of all the pieces so I can make a copy with aluminium embedded resin, I'm told that this is the way the movie versions were done.
