    Nov 6, 2009, 7:40 PM - A Sazzy Secret Santa Gift! #1

    Hi guys,

    Me again...

    I have a story to tell on this cold winter's eve, when working out what secret santa gift to get, I struck up upon the idea of using one of my old test buckets to make a helmet for my gift recipient, knowing he likes Star Wars.

    Now, this bucket was knackered and needed a lot of filling, including reconstructing the triangles on both ears, this was done with car body filler and to be honest, I'm even surprised by the job done.







    Anyhoo, with a bit of spritzing, I have gotten this:











    I have ordered a few green visors of t'internet and I have the stalk ready to paint and fit.

    It won't be a wearable visor, but hopefully it will be a great display gift!

    And we're done, by no means perfect, but good enough to give away as a cheap present.

    Thanks Bro,

    It's not perfect, as you know from your test bucket, there are dents and dinks and the tusk area isn't flush, but I'm sure the guy's going to like it.

    I'll also confess, it was a bit of a test for me, to see how well a Jango style helmet would come out
