    I'd still love to hear anything about that kama trim!
    there isn't much to say about the trim... i just picked up some bias tape that was about the same color as my paint, and then sewed it on

    and do you have anything that could help ME make some MDF DCs?
    I'd really be thankfull for ANY help!
    THX, and good luck!
    sadly i've got nothing for you... i didn't make templates or anything, i just eyeballed it then used a ruler to straighten out the lines.

    it took a couple of tries. the first ones were WAY oversized. the second pair came out just right though.

    more on the helmet... the one i have now is not clone wars accurate enough for my tastes, so i'm redoing it.

    this is where it started:


    i started marking off where things needed to be changed... sort of like a plastic surgeon would. the biggest cut though was on the back:



    OUCH!

    yeah, the entire back is different, so i had to cut it all out. that circle won't stay as-is either, but for now i want it there as a good center marker. in addition to the resculpt, cutting the back out also allowed me to push the sides out a bit. the animated helmets are just very wide at the bottom.

    the first set of changes to the face were mostly focused on the area around the visor. the cheeks have been squared off, and the cheek tubes are being flattened out, then will be extended a bit to flare out more.



    the second set of changes was more on shaping the resin bits... removing the brow trim, reshaping the visor a bit, reshaping the fin...



    the indents on the sides of the helmet don't come as far foward in the animation, which got in the way of painting the stripes in correctly. so... i moved them back:



    more to come! i'll be working on it for a couple of hours tonight, so there should be something good tomorrow.

    Indeed! Your dedication is second to none! I can't wait to see how this version turns out!

    Are you giving that bottom trim the wide flare?

    Great! I can't wait to see that!

    Keeping both sides even there will be a small challenge? Though after seeing your work here I don't think it'll be too much of a headache for you.

    sorry to ask, but does anyone think this may be possible with a little (lot) of work on a fett bucket?

    not sure what you mean? convert a clone to a fett? they are so different you'd be better off just scratch building it using the templates here. i can't think of any part that you'd preserve from the base.

    looking good bud! Love the new pulls. I have been getting really stoked on the Clone Wars look after watching the movie like 10 times last weekend on Blu-Ray. Partly because the film looks so good in 1080p on 65" inchs wide. I actually like the T-Visors way better on the Clone Wars clones over AOTC.
