Post by: Ciryc Cuyan on Jul 22, 2014, 09:03 PM

If you're not opposed to a bit of work go to the hardware store and find the smallest wooden dowel you can (about 1/4"-3/8").  Cut it to length, sand along the length of the dowel so it's flat on one side and then use that.  Or use a product called "Friendly Plastic".  Basically it's a jug of plastic beads that you can head up, mold to the shape you want and then it cools into that shape.  I've never personally used it, but a few of my colleagues have and they love the stuff.  Here's a basic explanation and some instructions.  http://www.theframeworkshop.co.uk/friendly-plastic-instructions.html

World or wonder flex was going to be my suggestion. You can get a sample size pretty cheap if memory serves. That should be plenty for what you're wanting to do.

I honestly have no idea where you could get it. Other than costuming applications I don't know what it could be used for. Maybe Google it lol?

yeah, it might be a good idea to put a bit of bondo at the seam on both sides of the fin where the fin meets the helmet, just to give it a bit more structure to support it. but it's up to you, it's your bucket.

i was actually thinking about some liquid nails silicone so it can be sandable and paintable ...its less of a hassle than bondo ;D

you can paint and sand bondo, in fact that's one of the things it was designed to have done to it.

yes,  but getting the right ratio is something i dont want to deal with for only a couple of little spots its really not worth the hassle....

another little update filled the little holes and sanded some spots and another coat of prime

getting ready for some bondo

That visor cut screams MJOLNIR armor to me...  I recommend going with at least a partial drop, if not the full T-cut.

The fin, on the other hand, is kinda awesome.  I like it. :D

well because its only a slight deformation im not to worried about it im planning on putting a hose on that side any way so its really not a big deal for me

Post by: Dhagon Varad on Jul 28, 2014, 10:20 AM
It may be small but it is noticeable, even with a hose. I would highly suggest fixing it. It won't be too difficult with a heat gun. Small things like that add up. The helmet is also the focal point of the suit, and will be immediately noticed.

^^haha i dont quite understand this ^^

but with the little bend in the visor im going to do it after paint because i have a theory that when the paint bubbles from the heat it will give some of the weathering i want if not then battle damage  ;D

but here are some pics of the bucket with the blue and green scale paint job

Your paint job on this is looking sick. You will have to have a T visor on it to pass CRLs though, but if you’re not interested in doing it as an official kit keep up the great work.

◦Full T-shaped visor dark enough to obscure the wearer's face.

There have been plenty of approved helmets with respirator like details built into the front. It just needs to resemble a T shape for the visor.

looking good vod.  When you weather it you might want to consider both a dark and light wash to highlight the blue/green scale pattern, it's a bit difficult to see unless you're looking at it from just the right angle.

i have considered that i probably will end up doing a multiple types of weathering including some experimental types of weathering
