Hey Guys, can anyone tell me just how to post pics on the Forum so I can show you my scratch lid? It's not perfect by any means but would welcome comments before I start to paint... Really wanna get it ready for London for Celebratrion Europe? :)
It's built from Foamex (Sintra) using WOF's Templates.... Thanks Alan

When you [click] reply to a thread, click the "insert image" icon at the top toolbar in the "Message:" window. It looks like a mountain with a sun in the right upper corner, and it's light yellow color. Next copy the address of your online photo from your Photobucket, Snapfish or other online photo album right into the address line that pops up from clicking the "insert image" icon.

Click "ok" then use the "Preview Post" button to be sure it look like what you want to post. After it's ready to go, click "Submit Reply."

Be sure to allow pop-ups from www.thedentedhelmet.com or just hold the Ctrl button when clicking the "Insert Image" button. A pop-up window will appear for you to add the http: address.

Great looking work btw! The rangefinder earcap is really sharp, nice job.

Thanks tk7602... much appreciated? altho a self criticism would be that the dome is too shallow... I wanted to try the self build before buying my first lid. I like the look of the BM lid? would you have any tips for a newbie?

Uther... the gap will be reduced when I fiberglass the inside to strengthen the Lid, but yeah it is.
As for the dome... really torn between getting it sorted with bondo - or taking a fiberglass cast and sorting it then? AGGhhhhh :confused
Just want it ready for Celeb Europe... gonna get it signed by Boba himself (y)

I think it would be better to fix it with bondo, so that you cast a clean fiberglass cast, rather than screwing with the final fiberglass product.

Hey! You're just around the corner from me, check out Alec Tiranti's just outside Newbury, an awsome place supplying all sorts of sculpting kit. Just go in there with your sculpt and they'll be MORE than helpfull...

Hey Nice one TF... Will try that? did you see the pics and agree with the shallow part, I think it's at a stage where it can be cast? where are ya from?

Can't seem to find the pics...Make sure everything's spot on before you cast...There'll always be some detail that'll make you want to do a V 2!
I live in Reading by the way...
