Bucket Progress

Post by Rimshot » Wed Sep 30, 2009 9:21 pm

Alright, well I sorta stopped slacking around here and actually got around to cutting and cleaning up the bucket.

Cleaned up things and bondo'd the holes here and there. Just ran into a minor problem.

There's a little chip on the rim here, and the rest should probably be reinforced. Any advice on the best way to fix this? As for the rest I was just thinking of running bondo on the inside to make it a little stronger.
Also, as for the mic tips and ear thingies (for the lack of a better term) what's the best way to attach them?

As far as the chipped piece, you can back it with a piece of ABS and fill it with some bondo. Its not a high impact spot so you dont have to worry about it to much.

The rest of it looks good!!! :thumbs: Have you decided on what clone you are going to do yet?

Well, that's the other question. Right now it's a debate between 501st or the 327th. 327th has some nifty stuff and looks nice, but the 501st is pretty cool too. going to have to make the decision soonish I suppose.

Well, I'm sure those younglings deserved it but yeh, I'm thinking I'm going to go 327th. Just got to start getting the armor and such. Any recommendations on a shoulder pauldron?

I know this is a bit of a dusty post but I just wanted to say what a great job you did on cutting and sanding! I am especially impressed by the professional dentistry!!!!!!!!!! I have a bunch of crooked teeth on mine :oops: Good work! What's your current status?
