Ear work is coming along. The base colors are down and I've done the black arch on the RF ear cap.

Here's a quick building tip.
I like to use Chicago screws to hold the visor in the helmet. I secure them with 2-part epoxy.
The base of the Chicago screw is smooth, as you can see here.

I use a Dremel cutoff wheel to cut a few notches around the head and some cross-hatching across the surface.

This gives it a little more surface area for the epoxy to grab onto.

Quick and easy. (y) :)

Ok, it's a wrap! ESB number 47 is all done. :)
These Fugly helmets are really nice and they build up into excellent ESB helmets.
Thanks for following along with the build, and here are the "mug shots." (y)

This helmet will be going out to its new home very soon!
