    Sep 14, 2008, 8:47 PM - My bucket...finally #1

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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)

    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!!!
