    Hello Everybody
    My Name is Dominique.
    I am 37 Years old and i am a landscape Architect.
    I stumbled across the TDG per coincidence on a Web Search for a Boba fett helmet (already made).
    I found the Rafalworks template and started building my own bucket to collect some painting Skills for the Second attempt on another Helmet.
    Good God so much Information about Fett. It all drives me a little bonkers.
    As you can see in the Headline i live near the finest racetrack in the World.
    So i also like motorsports and Classic Cars.
    Attached you will find some Pictures of my first bucket build.
    I haven't read enough before so i made some mistakes that would not happen in a Second build.
    I have a lot of fun reading the forum.
    I think this is enough for the Introduction. Please excuse my horrible german english grammar.
    I am looking forward to your advices and criticism on my build.

    Best regards

    I haven't played any games in some time... I used to play quite a bit, but between real work, painting and family time there is no time to play games much.

    Hello Guys.
    I made my own bordem connector.
    I have made it with a 10 mm Diameter Aluminum Bolt.
    The Diameter of the drilled holes is 1.8mm 2.5mm and 4mm.
    I found These dimensions in some thread around.
    For a scratch Build Helmet i Think it is ok.
    But i like to make it look like the Original.
    So criticism us much appreciated.
