    Let's see those Beehives! I am thinking I might do one of them next. But, I would like to see what others have done.

    Mike, that helmet is sick! I can only hope mine turns out as good as your Bro. Don't you ever tell me you can't paint!
    I plan to wear and display mine proudly! I am stoked to see these pics here dude!

    This is my Airborne version 1.0 (made in 2007). I've trooped in it about 25 times now. Since the release of the Airborne bust, the availability of better clone costume parts, other references, and learning new building methods just by researching more recent clone builds, I'm thinking about upgrading to ver. 1.5 in the next year or so.

    The helmet is a hippo ver.3 and the armor is by MG. Blaster (shorty) made by greedo. Long blaster is scratch-built by me.

    Edit: Beehive as of July 3, 2009

    Alan,
    I've always loved your build ! I've seen pics of it here and there and it's a really nice costume. Kudos on a job well done !
    I really like all the detial parts, it gives the costume a personal look,

    Mike

    Those beehive troops look sweet. Though I am very interested in the Commander Thire, Commander Neyo, Commander Bly, and Commander Appo varients. I am actually thinking of making my own unique design of a clone with those varients. LOL!

    Cheers jon, but mike did the hard work, I'm just a "newb" with a rattle can and some paint brushes I rate these things as one of, if not the single, best true fan made star wars helmets to date, dudes like evo, pghfett, sgb and others are raising the bar all the time, its great.

    I am in the process of getting it ready for paint. As for painting it, I am going to cheat. I have friend who is drooling at the chance to paint one. Who am I to tell him no?

    Great likeness and great work... but am I the only person who thinks this helmet design is one of the ugliest in the galaxy? I absolutely love most of the Ep3 clone helmets, but where they pulled this design from... well, this is a family friendly board so I can't truly express my opinion on that...

    Imagine for a moment that you DON'T like most of the Ep. 3 helmets, then see what you think of them.

    Not to knock anyone's work... these are fantastic representations of the helmet. I just think the design of the helmet itself looks too much like a bug or something...
