    Still loads of details to fill in/sand/adjust but you get the general idea, oh and running out of primer is a pain in the neck

    Update ****

    I've started tackling the main seams of the helmet now, I used devcon epoxy to glue the helmet together, its great stuff really strong, stinks to high heaven so again please use in a well ventilated area!!! kitchens do not count.... Also got myself some more primer, were getting there, think I'm about 50% done on this now and still loving it

    I have yet to finish all the detail bits but I am following screen grabs of the clones, like this one the holes needed to be left unfilled so I could screw the thing back together before epoxying it

    That is looking great.
    One question and I might have over looked it.
    What did you use to fill in the visor area?Was it only cardboard or was cardboard use for the templates?
    Did you happen to take photos of the inside of the face during priming and shaping?
    Sorry I guess it was three question.

    Cough cough, just finished work...getting on it now though, give me an hour or 2 and I'll have something for you all
  23. Aug 21, 2008, 11:32 AM - Re: Hasbro Clone Helmet Conversion #48

    Interesting! This reminds me of the Rubies that I modified the hell out of. I will say that when you do a direct modification to something like this, the weight becomes a major factor to consider, if you plan on trooping with it. Both of my Bacara helmets are direct mods to existing helmets (Javamonkey V3 and M.R.) they weigh a ton due to the bondo and epoxy putties. You are effectively wearing a master. I pinched a nerve in my neck at SDCC, after wearing my M.R. for a period of about 3 hours on Preview night.

    Keep up the good work!

    Alright you demanding lot Heres part of an afternoons work, I say part as I had to dash off to the dentist half way through with filler stuck to my fingers, I've basically begun the unenviable task of filling in all the little tiny gaps in the fin as well as refining the surface of the dome filling in any holes and imperfections, I want to get it as smooth and flawless as possible, enjoy the pics thanks for all the positive comments so far

    See if you can spot where I ran out of filler Gav
