    Nov 6, 2016, 6:39 PM - My Boushh Helmet 99% there! #1

    Hey guys, started unpacking some of my storage recently and pulled this beauty out. Haven't had a chance to really share it or display but but its definitely one of my most prized SW items. The helmet is from sandman (Todd) who can be found on this board. This was actually #33 from his original run all those years ago and had sat there for the longest time, unworked on. I had found a commission to do it but, that fell through in a negative way so it sat there a bit longer. In comes Alvomedia. She's currently posting for her own build and Boussh helmets and does a magnificent job. I love the leather work and damage she provided and all work was done by hand, stenciled from masking tape etc. Helmet was trimmed and assembled by me, with all the drilling work etc done. Alvomedia took over the rest, painting, weathering it, and doing the leather work. The helmet has fettronics lights installed and is certainly a work of art. If anyone's interested in commissioning her, feel free to pm me and I'll point you in her direction. Its a lot more breathtaking in person, especially the weathering on the leather. This will be going on top of my Boussh life size bust soon. I mention that its 99% as I'm looking to replace the top greeblie on the antenna/range finder soon as my casting had basically the entire top half of that greeblie missing. Great cast from Todd and great buildup from Annie/Alvomedia. Thank you alvomedia for finishing up a project sitting there for over 4 years now.

    And the helmet in sunlight. Its currently at my office now for all to wander by and check out. Had to show it against a white background to really show how much the details on the helmet pop out.

    Love the Boushh helmet. Annie did one for me a little while ago and I couldn't be happier with the results. Now I want to add a Fettronic light kit. Do you mind me asking what light bar length you got?
    Was it 136mm, 124mm or 110mm from Fettronics?

    My helmet is from one of Todd's kits also.

    Thanks...

    I believe I went with the 136 originally. It was one of his first kits when he started doing them. I would honestly go with 124 if I had to do it again. My LEDs were also too spaced apart so I ended up modifying it a bit to space them closer. Will see if I can find a vid.
