    Jun 11, 2006, 1:12 AM - Custom Helmet #1

    I finished my first attempt at my mando helmet today, and I think it came out well enough to share.






    I'm planning on ordering the T-Visor sometime this week, along with giving a coat of clear coat, but aside from that its pretty much done unless I think of something.

    Why don't you try carving in some real damage where you have the 3 slash marks then reaply the silver.

    I've always liked forest green and black together .
    Looks great so far, I'd say go for a little orange/red accents on the weathering for a rusting effect, 'specially on the slashes.

    Looks cool so far, but yeah, some carved battle damage would be good. And when are we gonna see some custom Mando buckets "without" the dent????

    Mine's got no dent.


    Katarn! Looks good! I agree on the deep scratches. Take a dremel tool or a hobby knife and whittle out those scrapes. Like the color scheme as well.

    Just a dremel, and one of the fiber re-inforced cut off wheels.

    Nice.

    Good color shades. Perhaps a bit of weathering in the scratched areas? It still looks a bit on the painted side, but definetely a good start. (I'd ditch the dent, but thats just me ).

    Ah, understandable. I know how that is. My custom is on the back burner until after October.
