Are you sure you're satisfied that quickly??

Thanks man! If I only could find someone to rename
that misspelled "bukcet" in the title I would be happy :lol:



UPDATE:

To be able to install the board behind the keyslots, I built a box type of thingy to fit around it. Here's what I mean, look:

Next I primered and painted the MQ-1 board:

Hello Antman! Since you kindly replied to my thread, I am returning the favor. You are a great artist and have the most impressive Boba-lid in my opinion. I have a small question: In the WOF templates, what is the long piece that says "Inner Surface" on it used for? Do you think it is necessary? Thank you!

It's been a while since the last update of this thread, but finally here is some news. Be it not so good, or......... see for yourself.



I've been wanting to finish the paint job on this cardboard build but somehow I got stuck due to lack of proper reference material (CD templates) and time. And in the mean time I decided to start a second build, which also kind of put this one in second place. Still I felt obligated to finish this, as I owe it to many of you out there following my progress. So one day I said to myself "Just work with what you can find on TDH and put in some personal touches." First I had to clear my mind and took the CAT-CAT for a walk around the block:

Boba-196.jpg


Unsuspecting anything I just let CAT do his business...

Boba-197.jpg


But what light through yonder alley breaks? Surprise! My very own unaltered clone gave me a scare!

Boba-198.jpg


He put on the unfinished helmet and snuck upon good old pops:

Boba-199.jpg


Hah! Trying to scare the old man huh? Well..... it worked a litlle bit... all good fun....

Boba-200.jpg


.....'till DISASTER struck!!! He accidentally tripped and fell, with the helmet on!!

Boba-201.jpg


***!

Boba-202.jpg


Oh NO!!

Boba-203.jpg


As if it couldn't get any worse, he just kept spinning and rolling.....D'OOOOOOH!!!!

Boba-205.jpg


I dare not look how this ends!

Boba-206.jpg


All that hard work. building and painting.... crimony! Praying that the damage will not be critical!

Boba-207.jpg


Huh?! What's that I feel with my feet?

Boba-208.jpg


Oh no...oh no....OH NOOOO!!!

Boba-209.jpg


BOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! WHY ME!!!??!!
(notice that my kid is also in agony)

Boba-210.jpg


Sniff.... hey.....wait a second........huh?.....

Boba-211.jpg


No.....it can't be.....

Boba-212.jpg


Look at this!! Goodness gracious!

Boba-213.jpg


It's damaged, but unbelievably in all the right places! It is a MIRACLE!!!!

Boba-214.jpg


YEAH! Fortune be with us!!! Good job son!!!

Boba-215.jpg


Hugs and kisses!! WOOHOOOOO!!!! (y)

Boba-216.jpg


A thourough examination of the helmet damage revealed that the newly added scratches are exactly placed in the correct area's. Sort of. This is incredible. This saves me a lot of paintwork!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

So here it finally is, my interpretation and tribute to the WOF templates, the Count Dookie paint schemes and all of TDH's freely shared information on the Boba Fett helmet, "enriched" with a few of my personal touches.

Eventhough it is not screen accurate (dislocated dent, a bit too small of a dome, etc.), I am proud to have built this first lid. And I enjoyed sharing the progress here on TDH! Thank you all for your wonderfull comments and constructive criticism!

Hahaha, cat-cat doing his business, with lifted legg & all!

Funny guy you!

Anyway, the now completed finished by accident helmet
looks great. Just great, 'cause knowing u a bit, your 2nd
build will be better, hard as it is to believe.

Congrats!! Looks like your craziness runs in the family btw...

seeing that interior of the helmet after completion shows me that you sir are a GOD among men, that has got to be the greatest bucket I have ever seen, I really thought it couldn't be done, but ***, this could be used on screen!!
