    Nov 9, 2010, 10:03 AM - First build. #1

    Thought id share a few pics with you guys of my very first build, this is gonna be a xmas present for my nephew. Its a bit of a practice run before I attempt to do my girlfriend her Mirta Gev.
    Anyway, its trash can armour and a Jango 1pc Helmet.
    And I have never attempted to make anything before in my life!!!!
    2 coats of primer and 2 coats of silver.

    2 coats of red and the masking fluid removed, gonna re mask and then the black coats.

    Need to remove the masking fluid from the shoulder then a clear coat and they are done.
    Helmet needs taping up and masking and then a black coat.
    I'm pretty pleased with how its going as I have never made anything before in my life.

    Fluid removed, just gotta dirty them up and a sealant of clearcoat and sorted.

    Wrong links, Use the img tag line.

    But all you have to do is remove the width and high portion of the img tag line.

    Usually happens when you copy it from a post on another forum that auto sizes the images.

    I like it, it looks very nice.

    honestly when a bucket is all one color it doesn't look right at all and imo looks like poor planning.

    The colour scheme was chosen by my nephew who the armour is for.

    White is kinda a cliche but with mine, i have had white in mind long before many even joined the forums, it just goes well with black suit and vest.

    Here's the finished lid, I messed up the visor so the red trim at the bottom is only temporary until I can get another visor.
    Also the super glue has somehow discoloured the visor also, must be the fumes as no glue touched that part of the visor at all.

    It would look more realistic if you dull coated the gloss black with all the damage would it still be glossy? probably not

    Yeah it's just a Hasbro. My Nephew is only 12 and the scale looks ok for him with it being small.
