I currently have a Jango and ESB build in work, Sleepalot is finishing my Cruzer Jango armor and gauntlets plus he will be doing the paints on my Animefan ESB lid. My RDK ESB V3 armor is getting done by Darthvoorhees, so while these parts are out getting done by real artists, I decided to do a custom Mando helmet for fun and as a skill building exercise. I aquired a cheap bucket for this exercise and you can tell it is a cheap bucket, so it will be a fun-ish challenge.
"Gator" helmet next to a Animefan helmet.
So holding this thing up to the light is like looking at a planetarium. It is very thin and full of air, and pretty fragile. The vertical part of the visor opening popped out on its own.
Surface needs a lot of work.
I used 3M Glazing and Spot Putty.
Cold out in the garage, so why not sand in the sink to keep dust non existent.
Did this 3x times to get to get the pin holes filled and to smooth out the top of the helmet.
Lots of work to go!
