Noob Bucket (fixed link)


this is my first helmet and it was made from a rubies. It wasnt until I was almost done with the helmet that someone told me about this site, but if not for everyones tips and ideas that thing would have been dumpster-bound, anyways the info here has been invaluable. It's acutally not completly done, I have the 9 little rectangles to put on the right ear and i have to finish the inside, Im spraying the inside with truckbed liner and then im installing a hard hat liner and a few pads on the sides to keep it from moving around. thx all, tell me wht you think, and be honest, I want to hear some helpful tips for my next one, which wont be a rubies of course.


please let me know if my pics are up now, Im having trouble learning how to post pics.

yeah man, looks good! The only thing for next time I would suggest is to dull the shine on the paint, by lightly sanding it, to just make the colors more matte, so the silver scratches pop a little more. Awesome work though!:D

Same as Sithlord...Looks good, but a little too shiny. Could be the camera flash though. Mine looks shiny when I take pictures of it, but it doesn't in person.

Great first time effort!
