Not bad man! I'm just confused, did something happen to the bucket you got from TZA or summat? :blink:

my main issue with the TZA bucket is it is just so big, i honestly think the only person it fits is Zod. The PA helmet has a lot better detail too.

I see. Well glad you found a solution in the end! And that one of us finally got their kit ironed out.

It will probably end up with a custom paint job.

Actually, you've taken a little too much off the top. You were supposed to stop at the red lines.

A little epoxy putty can fix that.

Oh, I looked at Foo's helmet at the lumber jacks game for reference, and I thought it went all the way to the top and bottom.

Don't forget to put the speaker fabric behind those vents after you paint your helmet :thumbs:

A good filler to use other than the standard bondo is called pc11 marine epoxy. I found that ace carriers and its got a lot more give than bondo does and doesn't chip as much either. Takes a little more standing but I think its worth it for the finished product.

Hey, it's those poorly trained Vau RC's that saved your kids' shebs during that mission to the Corellian-Perlemian Intersection :wink:


It's looking really good, Adam. Can't wait to see it all together :thumbs:
