Hey hey hey! I only got home give me a chance guys haha Drivers ed went late :/
Anyways here it is
now you gotta paint it your colors and give it life...
LIVE I TELL YOU LIVE!!!!
haha i want to so bad! is there anything u guys think i should clean up a bit? i put a bit more spot puddy were it was obvious there was cardboard but thats it
And i gotta do that wet sand thingy u told me about
I think it's excellent the way it is. just finish the filling on the cardboard, then prime and wet sand. The bumps are "character", you've seen my black bucket, it's bumpy, but I actually like it.
alright wet sand tomorrow then
Ill get the first layer on before saturday, im leaving for the weekend
dude i'm sooooooooooooo jealous!!
thanks bro, that means a lot
it's looking good vod =)
Real interested to see the finished end of this. It sounds like it's gonna be sick.
thanks all of you guys! It means so much to me
oh btw, im trying to work on my keyslot but i have no idea what to make it out of.. help?
you can cut the rectangle shape, then use a pvc pipe cut in half.
hmmm i'll have to try that
Make sure the pipe you use has the right diameter so it matches the concave of the helmet.
Cut the PVC pipe out, draw the shape on one, dremel it and then stick it to the back
I cut out the pvc pipe and the outer part, i also cut out the wood pieces for my belt pockets in IA today (there was a substitute in )
AAAAHGHHGHG!!!! I have so many things i want to say right now!!!! AGGGHHGH
I cut out the back of my helmet for the keyslot.... Well lets just say i rushed it and didnt take my time making it centred, Its way out of line!!! AAGGHHHH
pics r coming
and heres one of the wood blocks i cut today
That photo doesn't look so bad... glue your keyslot in with a large cardboard border and just fill in until it's straight.
Yeah, just build a border around it and DONT RUSH!!! Take your time...breathe...
its coming along Quite Nicely, next time you get sick Don't Tell prudii No matter what happens, Tell Zuka he doesn't have rusty tools bloody tools though but not rusty tools
oh yeah i forgot to mention, I at least use general anesthesia during surgery
Levi, stop being so hard on your self, you are doing an excellent job, here this may cheer you up:
HAHA thanks bro!
Man you miss a lot when your gone fore weeks! I had to wade through THREE PAGES of reading on this thread before I could comment! Man have you made progress Lev'ika: Congrats!
And Adonian what's with show me up on the saber makin' huh?
I mean man! I get on here to show my lightsaber build progress to Alpha and then the world and what do I ind, you've gone and made a kick shebs saber of your own! What is this world coming to?
I've always been good with sabers, I just want to do too many things at once like A'den does.
Here's an almost complete version of the snow saber.
Lev'ika it looks fine to me ner vod. Keep ur chin up!
some pics on the way... a few on my bucket progress and some pics of the trip
I did a bunch of sanding by hand to fix up the cheeks, they werent up to my likeing
also fixed the keyslot, just cut some off of the other side and gorilla glued it
and for you interest... Im the one in the leather jacket (and please, i am fully aware that i need a haircut )
Everyone in the photo is family, except for the guy leaning on the counter... yes i have 3 brothers :/
Looking Sexy Vod, and not in the gay way XD
I have 3 half brothers, which they all can buy alcohol
WOW :o just realized!! THAT MAN HAS A PURSE
Girls are Hot, only hot tho
not really, as much as i make sexist jokes, theyre just jokes! Usually theyre the ones who outsmart us This is probably a traitor move against guys but its true :/ at least it is in my case (im an idiot) once we get married theyre probably gonna control us anyways haha
and dude, obviously girls are smart cause look how many girls there are on this site! I think the smartest people in the world are the ones who decide that star wars is the way to go
Oya, vod. Absolutely right. My girl's the best thing that's ever happened to me. She keeps me out of trouble, and handles all the bills and complicated aspects of our life. All I have to do is go to work and make money, and cook her dinner. Pretty good deal if you ask me.
And are you standing in front of a pirate ship in that pic? Cause that would be pretty epic. (I read the sign, but it had to be asked)
sure am it was some replica boat thingy ill shoot a few more pics up with me on it
Score. Pirate Mando's rock.
Ok here they are
*please excuse my brothers strange look *
LoL, Alpha, nice jacket. All you need it a motorcycle and some claws coming out of your forearm and BAM! Wolverine. He's from Canada, ya know.
Awesome, Al'ika. That's not the ship in the West Edmonton Mall is it?
lmao looks like u're havin' fun ner vod
Looking good Levi'ka!
And I like the details on that saber Adonian!
hey Saber u need to check my art thread and respond to the instructions at the bottom of page 5
batters or banter?
I'm pretty sure he does both. Wolverine is my fav. Always has been, probably always will be. If you're looking for wearable claws, I'd say your best bet is to go with making your own. If you're looking for display, I'd go with the Pantera claws...
naw... I personally like Iron Man a lot... but my all time favorite is War Machine! (both Marvel btw) I will admit tho that I do love the X-Men too tho, NOT a spiderman fan tho... I like his villains better, or at least I like the Green Goblin better! lol
you back at home yet vod?
Been back since Tuesday bro, and Kal.. watch spectacular spider man. Itll get you hooked
Truely wasnt a spidey fan until i got hooked on that show! Ultimate spidey fan now
yeah my nephews love that show! I don't do a whole lot of TV anymore tho so... I'm really more of a comic book kinda guy lol
The funny thing is that spidey is for all ages! That show has even captured interest in my "gentle giant" friend whos a year older than me we're kinda star wars/marvel nuts
lol yeah me 2... I actually do like the new X-men show that's on TV now.
Its definatly good! But spidey passed that and left it in the dust. The fact that the spectacular spiderman continues a story rather than throwing out random storys really interests me. And they definatly did amazing on the love triangle (Gwen's definatly the best ) Im sure when Gwen just randomly kissed Peter in todays episode every young kid who was watching it was like "EEEEEWWWWWW" But more of the audience is over the age of 12
Ok guys, Kal reminded me we havnt come up with our clan name yet! *DOH* slipped my mind good thing we got Kal around get us back on track HAHA
So guys lets choose this name! What are your guys's opinions?
he he yeah that's my job I guess...lmao well, I kinda like something like Basilisk or Besuulik Clan... I like the animal names (I know they're droids/fighters but the literature indicates that they have personalities and act like pets). I also like the idea of something that would show our diversity... I mean we have a group of CW vets and those who weren't around yet/died before then, we consist of every specialty from scout/TAC to medic to dar'jetti (no longer Jedi), with a wide variety of personalities from the comic genius of Lev'ika to the no nonsense Kal Waco and even the morbid humor of Pac'ika. We have a wide range of sizes/ages. As a group we are as diverse as the mando'ade themselves. What do you guys think?
Love it, what you other guys think?
Nex Addo maybe, means Death bringer in latin well so said a translator
@Shuk, Sadly I'm single, and have been for a year or so I don't know the excellence of women
@Alpha, Levi Ner'vod, I can outsmart women and cops and practically everyone(i have escape plans for every bit of the school, including the Gymnasium, people say its stupid then i say "There is a chance a mass murderer will kill everyone within sight, I'd like to be safe instead of dead"
But knowing me I'd sneak behind the mother****er and snap his neck, so its so i can kill him, not be safe
@Everyone, My favourite Marvel superhero is Iron man, before the movie, it was spiderman.

I gotta say that the spiderman movies disapointed me... Toby Miquire (?sp) was definatly not the best choice to play the role of Peter/Spiderman.
I was an Iron Man fan over spidey until this new series the spectacular spiderman caught my attention! The show is definatly living up the the name spectacular!!
yeah the movies weren't the best in the world... could've had a better star and leading lady (no offense to Kirsten Dunst).
Personally i like a Hero who uses a buffed up suit
Its definatly ture though, personally i think Kirsten didnt have the right qualitys for Mary Jane. They definatly didnt do a very good job on hiring actors for that matter
hey alph how to you get the / in the 0 ( the slash in the 0) in your name?
On the computer.. no idea just copied it from wookieepedia LOL sorry bro
I need help guys (and girls ) Well im getting tired of looking at my helmet! pretty much because of the not painted factor!
But before i can paint i need to clean up the edges in the cheek areas. I've been sanding it everyday and not much progress... whats the best way to clean up a helmet?
take a pic and circle it in paint so I can see what your havin a problem with.
this might take a little bit... ive got the pics but the uploading process on my overloaded mac might take a little bit
i gtg guys sorry, ill be back in a few hours so ill get it up then
Do you ever sleep?
yeah he sleeps during class! lmao jk jk
haha!!! I know a few people like that...
definatly described me week right there
Ok pics pics so we can help you.
Oh and how are you overloading your Mac? You must be running a ton of programs.
almost done uploading on to photobucket, sorry for the time this is taking
cue Jeopardy music while we wait.
Alright here they are, no circles tho... but theyre close up so you can see what i mean
you can fill those holes with spot filler using your finger since it's hard to use the shaper to push it in.
To cut down the high areas, I used a sponge sanding block, it conformes to the curves really good.
I also used a sanding wheel on my dremmel to lower some of the wavy areas, it took a long time, about 30-45 minutes per cheek of small changes.
remember, your first bucket is still (well most people's anyway) gonna be a little "off", but that's ok, don't give up, you've come a LONG WAY BRO, you WILL SUCCEED.
I was gonna post a pic of my slow, but working on it... Mini bucket, but I didn't take a pic of the cheeks before I got them smooth, but they were wavy, like the dune sea on tatooine, but now they are smooth.
Which also reminds me... I need to work on the mini so I can start the Dark Jedi.
Here's a pic of the sanding blocks I use.

Yeah, I need to buy some card stock (expensive) to print the templates (only the needed parts not the extra junk), but my last paycheck only had 2 working days on it, and this thursday will be the same, so mortgage is not being paid by me this month, at least I can borrow from the old man once in a while. But anyway, I'll work on the bucket after Xmas, and I'll get it done fast.
No need to brag about a hair cut. Almost everyone in my family has long hair. I guess it is one of those gifts of looking like a rock star. LOL! Three brothers is a lot. I have two sisters who are older then me. So in a way I am the youngest in my family when it comes to brothers and sisters. And then I have two brother-in-laws. Then there is my nephew Jasen who is kind of like my lil' brother because he has been living with me since he was born so yeah....
But great work on the armor vod. You are actually getting there. Keep it up!
@Ad'ika: yeah ner vod I know the feelin... take ur time!
@CC: that's a big family! 3 girls, 2 boys and a nephew all living in the same house... craziness ensues! lol
lol yeah mine's just a single piece that wraps around the calf, just below the knee and has molle mounted grenade pouches
I'll probly be an explosive medic so I need a lot of straps ALOT
