Zaine Ordo Pilot wip 2.0

After failing horribly at a scratch build with pep.  I have decided to try the Homer method and this is how far i've gotten.

Yes!  Bucket bucket builds!  My recommendations with this route is to make sure you properly sand and prep the surface (sandpaper, etc.) before using resin or bondo.  It will flake off otherwise. 
A bonus to going this route is it will give you a nice flush surface to mount a visor as opposed to a cardboard or even pep. build!

Hey now, Pep helmets can have flush mounted visors. It just takes much patience to get the desired effect.

 :laugh: I was not patient with my first bucket.... Poor sacrificial thing.  I just learned through the experience of building 3 and starting a 4th scratch, that I like the bucket method best for making the overlay around the visor.   :D

I've honestly lost count of the mumber of helmets I've done, I do know at least 10 are approved with someone's kit.
