    I really like ALL of the colors so far, and how they've come together. Looking forward to a complete, full view shot!!

    You got the decals already.

    When you mentioned the Mythosaur skull, I looked it up to see what variations turned up and I found this:

    It's a fan-made design, but I thought it was kinda cool.

    I thought of something that would make your t-visor really stand out. Remember I said something about a pink t-visor? Well how about Pink window film for your BM Visor

    QUESTION... Can anyone tell me how you install the BobaMaker visor, I am having trouble keeping the bolts down. I'm using super glue and they are just popping off.

    THANKS!!!

    Thats awesome! But after thinking about it I don't know if it would look good on the visor I have. But we'll see... after the helmet is done, maybe that will be what it's missing.

    Use an industrial epoxy. It WILL hold it down and not pop off. I had the same trouble with my visor and the bolts popping off but I fixed it by applying industrial epoxy.

    Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics)

    I put it on with some Devcon Plastic welder so hopefully that holds. thanks!

    Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics)

    i screw mine directly into the helmet. they will NEVER come off.

    Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics)

    JB weld or JB Quik works wonders too, its a two part glue and it holds really really well. So if that doesnt work, just use the stuff i mentioned. Take care and good luck.

    Great progress so far!!!

    go to ace hardware and find one of the old guys that have been working there since the dawn of time and ask for chicago screws (they're two part screws, one part screw the other a shank the screw threads into). then stop off in plumbing and get some plumbers putty (i find mine at walmart). when you get home figure out where all the anchor points are going through the visor, i.e. drill some holes through the visor (make them a kinda long, so you have a little room for adjusting. then mark the spot on the inside of the helmet, put a small ball of the putty on each of the spots then set the shank into the putty.

    disclaimer: i used just the putty to hold the visor into my sgt fang helmet, but i plan on using this described technique when i get around to doing my ms3. i have no idea how well it will work with the dp material. but i did use it to hold snaps to sintra tabs and it holds incredibly well to that. (then i gooped the snap-tab to the inside of the armor)

    Thanks, but it's not mine. :o I just found it by looking looking up "Mythosaur" pics on google!

    Re: My Fem Mando Progress (pics)

    I always just hot glue the visors in

    That being said, there are a couple of things that can bite you. If the inside of the helmet isn't nice and smooth, it won't sit right.

    If the visor is shaped a bit differently than the helmet, you may get some gaps. I've never really been worried about those myself. I don't think the originals were installed perfectly either. A minor gap will just let more air in, which is a Good Thing.

    Thanks a lot. The inside of the DP is really bumpy and weird so hopefully it sits right. im gonna try the plastic welder again too.
