    Custom details

    I'm making a custom black/red helmet and was wondering if anyone had any ideas for cool little details.

    I did one a while ago as a test that had silver claw marks down the front of it like a huge animal scratched the crap out of it. And I left the rest of the helmet pretty much unscratched.

    Have you looked at Rodann's custom? He did some really neat things to his.

    I think the thread is in the armor section.

    My pleasure, like I said I just did it as a test and I thought it was cool looking. I am glad you like the idea.

    for filling in the dent, I know bondo works but does the suff you put on the wall to fill in a whole work?

    I used burnished-on stencils on mine. Just like they did with the ROTJ pack. You can design your own letter/symbol combinations. And it's darned cheap. Some plug ports in the earpieces might look cool, too. Maybe the rangefinder on the LEFT side.

    Anyone consider a RED tinted visor? Not dark blackish red, like the green, but red gel color. That would look SWEET on a black bucket.

    Thanks for the kind words, FT.

    Sean, stop complainin'! It wouldn't be "The Dented Helmet" without a dent. And what if they're all clones? They'd all bump their heads in the same place, wouldn't they?

    Predatormv, do you have a pic of your custom bucket? I'd love to see it! Also, did you go through & make the full custom?

    What about a version of the helmet crest that the clone troopers have or would that be too extreme?
