    Daaaang, that's amazing. I'm so jealous. When I was younger I used to tell my Dad that I wanted to drive around in a chromed out car then he went on about blinding people on sunny days into car accidents & police tickets so that was the end of that conversation. Dreams...shot...down...but the dreams were only in a coma, they're coming back!

    Oh yeah, I love the helmet even more.

    thats very cool...i like the helmt too..very shiney...i think ill keep the rub and buff method too though...

    i dont know man..i just watched the video and it seems pretty easy to do...may be worth the 115 bucks...have you tried doing any weathering over the final product? pictures..?

    I'm still active here. I check in from time to time, but my Fett costume is on the backburner for a while while I work on other things. I didn't do any weathering on the helmet because I couldn't bring myself to mar what was then my best chrome finish to date.

    Since then I've done these guys:



    Then turned them into this:




    I work as a commercial mariner, so I spend 4-6 months per year at sea doing my navigator job. The rest of the time I'm on vacation and tinkering in my shop. If you'd like to know more about any of this insanity, check out my myspace profile at http://www.myspace.com/protagonist4hire. I keep project logs and travel journals in my blog there and try to make it all interesting reading.

    Those are older style Mk6 Space Marine helmets from Warhammer 40,000. This is the beginning my Halloween costume (and a couple of local friends) for 2008. I also have the rifle built up to go with it:



    I'll be starting the other parts after I finish this year's Halloween project. By the time I finish this character, I will go from being my normal 5'8" barefoot to just under seven feet tall in the full rig. Here's another variant of the same sort of character with a different color scheme:

    I'm suddenly needing cash for other projects and thinking about listing my super shiny Jango bucket on ebay. Would anybody be interested, or am I wasting my time?

    i think tinkering is a bit of an understatement! And to think, I was proud of myself to put a stormtrooper helmet together a few years back! Hope you're still costuming, though this will have appeared to taken alot of your spare time. Wish I had an uncle as cool when I was a kid. Very nice!
