    Thanks Todd! Your helmet quality is amazing! Such a breeze to work with!

    Seeker, look no further. Sandman is your man!

    - - - Updated - - -

    So here's the next update.

    Decided to tackle the head antenna thingy. While the supplied part was ok, I wanted to do another one myself. Maybe because I wanted sharper edges, maybe because I wanted rounder tubes, but mainly because I'm anal this way. http://www.therpf.com/images/styles/smilies/smile.png

    So this began with sourcing for the right sized tubes and a little bit of thinking behind how to fabricate it, comparing closely with the kit part.

    From the main tube, 6 slots were marked out with graphic tape to be cut out:

    Slots cut and the tube sanded down to see better:

    Next, a larger size tube was cut into 4 rings, one complete ring, and 3 cut further to form 2 arches each. I need 6 of these. The first ring done:

    All 6 arches done.

    The inside was filled with several tubes of different diameters as per the actual prop, and the hole for the antenna drilled.

    I inserted a screw thread on the back for easy installation into the helmet later:

    The completed part primed:

    That's all for today. Gonna be travelling for work for a week, so won't be able to continue this till next week. In the meantime, if anyone can help me to identify the metal greeblies that go on the end of the antenna as shown, that would be awesome!

    Those metal things along the rod. What are they and where can I find them?

    While letting the helmet dry, I did the rest of the greeblies:

    I'm basing my own helmet build from this tutorial. What paint colors were used on these greeblies? The snout piece looks like it has a base of Gun Metal, but photos can be tricky.
