I also went back and filled in the gap between the top of the right earpiece and the helmet, so now it looks like it's embedded. I also decided I wanted more of a soft curve to where the cheek bone connects to the mandible, so I went in and filled that more too.

Putting some kill stripes of course, and I was thinking about writing "Revenge" in Mando'a somewhere on it.

Any suggestions? I'm open to better ideas.

 :P I would hope kill stripes would be on it.

Perhaps a certain phrase or something someone important to you said would be interesting to have. Like
"Mandalorians dont make threats, we make promises"

I'm going to have to ponder what to write on it... I always liked Pvt. Joker's "Born to Kill" from "Full Metal Jacket."

But, now that the Bondo is almost dried, I have progress pics! The gap in the earpiece tasked me, so I filled it in, and took another pass on the cheekbones.

That looks much more unified now that youve added to it, not that it wasnt before  :laugh:

That is a good idea for a helmet, and FMJ is a great movie!!

Hi guys! Had to remove the Bondo and start over since I didn't add enough hardener and it was still gummy days later.

Also attached the antenna. After a bunch of false starts, I ended up filling it in with (what else?) more Bondo, then drilling a hole in the helmet and screwing the antenna in.

Finally, started re-priming the whole thing. There's still a few rough spots, but it's consistent with my armor, so fingers crossed it's ok.

Repainted the metallic silver all over, then added the "primer" level of paint. Next layer is going to be what's in my profile pic.





EDIT: I accidentally a whole photo.

Quick update before I work on this today—adding in the white on the dome and the cheek plates, then the visor and black wash.
