    JD bucket build

    Just wanted to share pics of my JD bucket build. Most of the work was done last year, however the week before San Diego ComicCon I revisited this project to get the helmet ready for my son to use with his suit.

    Just an f.y.i., I did shoot the helmet with a coat of professional primer before applying the dark grey paint. I just forgot to take a pic.

    For the red and grey I used the Dupli-Color automotive line of paints and they are great. The dry time is super quick (quicker than Krylon), it cures very hard (harder than Krylon is seems), and there are an endless choice of colors since they're all made to match the various auto maker colors out there. There's no question I would definitely use this brand if I ever do another dented variant helmet.

    Enjoy,
    Cruzer

    Haha, that's great JoNich. I bet there are others out there that have baby pics sporting Mando gear...this should be started in a separate thread. Something like "Dented variants in diapers"

    Looks like your kid's ready for his first JD kid bucket I also know that T-Bone makes a kid bucket too, but out of resin.

    Great pic!
