    My vision is bad enough, I don't want to mess with the lens. I like to think my helmet has the "windshield wiper" effect from Republic Commandos.

    As for the weathering, it is weathered but it's subtle, it just gets washed out by the flash. Jun and Jonich have seen it on my webcam so they've had the best view of it aside from seeing it in person. Jun, Jonich, can I get a witness?

    I can definetly see the wash out of the weathering at the pics you posted on HVM. It looks fantastic dude.

    Just curious, but why is the base wide like that?

    Looks a little too flared out still. RF should be at less of an angle. Almost vertical.
    Could use a couple paint washes to give it that gritty look.
    I understand that it's a work in progress.
    Looking pretty good so far.

    I agree that, by it's self, it does have a bit more flair than most but on my frame I think it looks fine.

    After trying on as much as I could today I realized that I can't use the flightsuit I have, it's too small and restricts my movement.

    Using the toothbrush bristles flick technique on the mandibles or upper cheeks would add some lifelike dimension too. There's a thread about it here at TDH somewhere. Great job.

    I was thinking of doing that with some shade of green for Geonosian blood/fluids.

    After playing RepCom again I must correct myself and say Geonosian blood is orange.

    Maybe it depends on which ones you kill.
