    Antman has a tutorial somewhere on here. There is also a good step by step tutorial on instructibles. Helmet looks familiar BTW.

    Heres some new pics guys...cut and put the cheekbones in. This were really tough getting the hard angles but did the best I could. I added some cork around the rim of the dome to bring it out a bit more. Some angles look better than others most likely a result of my bucket virginity LOL! We'll see how it turns out? The next few days I plan on tweaking angles here and there. Any suggestions are welcome as id love to hear your thoughts.
    Thanks
    B
