Great work so far! I see that the helmet in your avatar has the ROTJ sindrome (vertically flipped image), as some of the concept arts were inverted in a couple of images. I say this so you can avoid adding the rangefinder to the wrong side on your build. Check out the Gallery for more images ==> Boba Fett Concept Art.
Sanding and sanding and sanding and guess what?..... MORE SANDING! (I think im goin' crazy )
BUT i did some small modifications like this:
I've glued pvc sheets on the ear and a strip of plastic to the back
And also! I've attached a big sheet of PVC to the bottom as well to make the whole helmet more stable so it wont fall apart during sanding!
So that's all for now. Sadly
But i want it to be smooth as possible so i have to pay a big price, and i hope its not just a waste of time.
I'll be back guys (dont know when but I'll be back! )
P.S.: Is some one can give me tips how to speed up the sanding procces ? Would really appreciate it !
Looking great! From my experience there isn't really a faster way to sand if you're already using a palm-sander. If not I would recommend using one, it really helps. Also a Dremel for change-heavy areas.
Yeah sanding can be tough. It gets easier after doing it for awhile on the same helmet because by then you know how to angle the sander best, but don't know what it would be like on the McQuarrie helmet. Good luck!
OK! Im still sanding BUT i did a small modification again! As you can see in earlier pictures there WAS a small ledge between the ear and the side of the visor. So i leveled it to nice and even. Pictures will be up soon.
