    My bucket...finally

    Hi everybody,

    I just finished my helmet today and wanted to see what ya'll thought about it. I tried to do everything right, but if you notice anything out of place, missing, or just plain wrong, just say so, and I'll see what I can do about it!

    This is my first bucket build, and I used Alan's WOF templates (thank you SO much for those, Alan!!!:thumbup). It's made out of fiberglass with a little bit of sintra here and there.

    Here are the pictures






    Now all I have to do is finish my armour...

    Love the colors! Seriously, i wanted to do gold and black but now I can't. =( The scratches crack me up...they look good, don't get me wrong, but I want to know the story behind that fight. Was is a kitten? Girl-Mando had enough of your drunk self at the bar? Com'on, lemme know.

    looks like a horrible dish washing accident, a fork slipped out of his soapy hands. Wow is he lucky he was wearing his helmet... Just kidding ;-)

    Love the Led Head Lights, thought about doing that on my bucket, but couldn't decide how I wanted to do it. Light it up, let us see it!

    Re: My bucket...finally

    I was thinking of blinking LED's in my key holes anyone think that'd be ok or overkill? I wanna go Black and dark purple for colors scheme so the LED's would be UV.
    Or Red and Blue.

    Re: My bucket...finally

    Thanks everybody for the great response!!!

    I'm still working on getting pictures of the lit up EL wire and LEDs, so I'll see what I can do.

    If you keep looking for another post from me, you'll all see what the scratches are from; I'm working on the weapon right now! And yes, I'll think up a story for it! I do love the idea of a dishwashing accident...sounds like something I would do...

    Also, Adonian, the bottom LED on my bucket is a UV, and probably would go better with the blue than the purple you mentioned...I'll try and get some pics on here ASAP.

    Re: My bucket...finally

    OH YEAH! That looks great, I'm gonna use red EL on my visor, and hopefully superbright LED lights like yours if you don't mind. I should have my right ear cap on mine tomorrow, but I dont know if I wanna do a standard RF, maybe something custom. Lemme know on mine. (by the way, I linked from my bucket to yours to show it off, I really like it)

    Very nice bucket, can't wait to see what you do with the armor.

    Re: My bucket...finally

    looks good but you should whether the gold some where the visor is make it a bit more dirty to sync more with the rest of the bucket

    i like the side lights that is a nice touch and cool how you can somewhat light the visor up

    Sorry for being really slow at responding everybody...

    Anyways,

    Everybody- Thanks for your kind words!

    Andonian- Thanks for all the encouragement!!! Can't wait to see your finished progress!

    Royal- I'd put the armour at 94% finished. It should be done before Christmas.

    Punhulk- The gold is weathered pretty heavily...I really don't want to dull it overly much...

    Thanks again everyone!!!
