    Alright, I feel this is back on track. Got a new can of ocean blue, and just fixed up and painted it on, and I feel it's going to dry well. Will try to post pics later!

    Bam! Came out as I wanted it to!

    Just gotta tape off everything but the ear sections, and then clear coat it. Lighting was bad, so I had to take a few with flash, which clearly shows the seperations



    The crack line is pretty non-existant at this point.



    Without flash



    This thing is pretty glossy right now in person!

    Finished up the blue tonight. Just got to do the silver, pin stripes, and then the RF/stalk assembly, visor, some light weathering, and then it's good to go!

    LOL My bad bro. Dont worry! I may actually start on it soon! I fear that Ive taken more then I can handle! :run:

    Thankfully, I got a nice place to store all my current projects- my roomate's old room!




    Yea yea, it's on an ironing board. My old roomate broke it, so it's permanantly in the open position. It was an asthetic choice to stick it in the empty room so no one will see it, so, now it's holding up the helmets!

    Hmm...would of never thunk that I'd be doing all this back in 02', was hard enough for me to just get one jango helmet in my house!

    Re: SoulAssassin's ILM FP CC Jango Build!

    Got it clearcoated today, (was out all day yesterday) and taped it off and is ready for the rub and buff. However, a small crack appeared on the lower left corner of the keyslots. It is very shallow, exactly like the one that was along the upper visor portion. Going to use JB weld again before I go ahead with painting it.

    I also started working on the RF box as well. Went to the MC studio to sand these down, the casting had about a 1/4" thick layer of extra resin on the top that needed to go, and they have this really effective sanding belt that is the right size for small objects. However, I ended up looking like Scar Face when he smashes his face into the large pile of you know what lol.



    Going to figure how I want to do the ear and RF. I am thinking about using screws or Goop to attach the ear, but put a tap on the bottom of the stalk, so that I can put a bolt through the inside, so it can be removable. Just ideas at this point.

    Thanks KaanE, I was thinking of something similar. That method you posted appears to make the whole ear removable? Its a good idea, and I'll consider it, but I'd like to see about just making the RF stalk come off, rather then the whole assembly itself. But we'll see!

    Just finished rub and buffing it. Here's a teaser for now. Oh man, the flash of the camera ruined the look of the finish

    Re: SoulAssassin's ILM FP CC Jango Build!

    Alright, almost there! It's the home stretch, really. Just need to attach the visor, RF ear, and then finish up the RF box. Once everything else is finished, I'll be weathering it.

    I did this just before adding the pin-stripes, I measured the distance from one part of the ear cap to the hole, and in relation to where it sits on the helmet, used the measurements to mark and drill the hole. It lined up perfectly.



    I put in another RF stalk for asthetic purpouses for the pic. (hope you dont mind TheDentedOne :P )

    Re: SoulAssassin's ILM FP CC Jango Build!

    Alright, I can say that the helmet itself (not the RF) is completed, minus the keyslot screening. I just installed the visor in tonight, and I gotta say, that it was probably the most difficult visor installation I have ever done. It's in as best as I could put it, most of the issues being the large amount of bondo hindering the visor's placement. Had to grind it as best as I could, even broke a needle file in half :mad: One more thing that I am pretty upset about is that the crack which, despite using both bondo AND JB weld to cover, once again, appeared. Not as in full force like when I recieved the helmet, but its there now. Im just really ticked about it, especially since the JB weld didnt even work...

    Also, I weathered the helmet. I really tried to do a *light* weathering as requested, and I hope this is what was expected. Other then that, I just need to finish the RF ear and RF/stalk. Im starting to think about possibly using rare earth metal magnets to hold the stalk in place, but Im not sure yet. I'll most likely try to get a tap put into it so I can just use a bolt. So here are pics!





    Used the flash to try to show the weathering better
