    Feb 6, 2009, 10:04 AM - 501st Clone Helmet Build-up #1

    I was sent a Clone helmet by a friend who wanted it built and painted up in the style of the 501st troopers, here I will be documenting the whole process and perhaps it will be helpful for anyone else doing a build up, I will pop in later and show off a few pre-paint photos and then the fun can really start

    I believe its an MR recast, it was quite thin in places and I had to do a lot of work to build up the fin as it was full of pits and a tad warped, here it is now after sanding, filing, sanding, priming, sanding, filing again and finally priming

    Thats not the same lid! You've swapped it and are actually using your OSCS?

    A bit more surgery was required when I realised the back 'grill' detail was completely missing and there was a large blob of resin in one of the corners which was an absolute shoot to get rid of once I'd ground most of that away I set about scratch building the grill detail, its not 100% accurate but its a darn sight better than it was, now onto the real painting
