    The bucket is -close- to being done. Obviously the RF is not installed. The inside lacks the proper trimmings. but the outside is just about where I want it.

    Installing the visor, in a word, sucked. It's going to look sloppy under a microscope. I'd do it all over if my patience weren't wearing thin.

    anyway, here it is so far:

    looks great, maybe you can put some blood stains on the helmet, that would be even more cool.

    I was toying with the idea of putting a bloody hand print on it, but I don't know how well it would show up... Since you've suggested it though, I may do some experimenting with a semi-transluscent crimson paint on a black surface.

    maybe I can make a quick paint of where it would look cool...
    hold on a sec.

    I hope you can download paint, because I don't have it on the laptop.
  11. Dec 30, 2004, 11:16 PM - Re: *UPDATE #3 - Mandalorian Imperial Mercenary. HELMET PROGRESS #36

    turns out I do, I found it...

    anyways here's an extremly quick conception of areas that may look cool with some blood scenes, bare with me.

    the dots towards the bottom are just possible places to put little splatters especially towards the bottom of the visor.

    sweet.

    I think stage blood is the way to go with this, should it be implemented. That way if it comes out looking like i did a face-plant in a jello mold i can wipe it off. It will also look more life-like than paint.

    cheers!

    Christov that bucket is looking sweet! You have the coloring just right! I was a bit skeptical, but all I can say is....you definately pulled it off. I can't wait to see more. (Also glad you didn't loose any digits while trimming up the vinyl monster)

    Keep it up!

    I'm looking forward to the finished version with blood stains, it'll look AMAZING!

    If I ever decide to make a custom bucket, I'm def doing blood stains.

    'few more days. The blood thing I'll worry about last, there are bigger fish to fry... like the fact that i still don't have a solid concept of the jet pack. expect more pics within the next 5-7.

    Cheers!
  19. Jan 2, 2005, 12:41 PM - Re: *UPDATE #3 - Mandalorian Imperial Mercenary. HELMET PROGRESS #44

    if you try a google search, there's tons of tutorials on cardboard jet packs...

    Awesome.. that gash across the helmet had got to hurt!!

    anyways.. instead of blood, have you considered just having mud and grime running down the helmet?

    Another excellent idea. probably a more plausable one as well.


    Here's the Jet Pack. I knew I'd kept those old Whey protien cans around for something. its nearly completed except some detail drybrushing, etc. I'm also considering adding some more plastic contour to the outside of the frame so its not so flat, but at this point I'm unsure what shapes to use and how complex this needs to get before I call it "done". not all of the parts are permanently plastic-welded together yet, so speak now or forever hold your peace.

    Cheers!

    Lookin' sweet my Dark Fett Man!

    Are you going to be at C3? It will be easy to find each other. Here is the story...

    Christov - "Hey, anyone seen a big white mando commando?"

    John - "Hey, anyone seen a totally black and grey Imperial Fett? Wow, you look good.....DOH, OW"

    Chris to Christov - "Oh, you are looking for John...he is over there getting beat up by Mirax's husband!"

    Mirax - "Honey, stop beating up John, he is just giving me my Darth Maul bumper vinyl for my car!"

    John - "OW! Where is my possie? HEEELLLPPP!

    GEO - "Hey, John is getting whipped, let's help! CENO, SLAVEFIVE, KINDREDJEDI...back me up!

    CENO - "Sure, but I am busy with all these hotties, and I am the only single guy here."

    SLAVEFIVE - "John, I am coming! Quick, give me your credit card so I can close out the room first!"

    KINDREDJEDI - "I have to be careful, my Sintra armor may shatter! Besides, John is 250 lbs. of pure, powerful, super-focused...lethergy"

    Mirax - "Sorry John, every nerd in a helmet hits on me..."

    John - "bu..bu..but all I, I w..w.ww..wanted to do is g..give you your sticker."

    Mirax - "John, stop whining."

    THE END
