Awesome! Could you please LMK where you find a decent green visor, if you do? I can't seem to find one that's not transparent... I was thinking of doing a black one underneath the green, but am afraid it will compromise the color of the green one.

I bought mine from these guys. www.kalevalavisors.com . I've bought a few.colors from them before. This time I bought the army green one. It looks pretty good to me.

This is what I've been working on the last few days, and it has been a nightmare sanding down this visor ridge to install the new one. I'm using a rotary cutting tool, sand paper, and massive amounts of elbow grease. I'm making progress tho... Slow, maddening progress, but progress nonetheless.

Thank you!! That's great info, much appreciated! I bought the Army one as well, because it matches the olive/army green that I'm going with on my soft armor. Thanks for the tip vod!

I received the green visor from Amazon today, but I'm not happy with it at all. It is not transparent like I thought it would be, which is great because my face can't be seen in it,  and it is also definitely green, but*.... only in direct light, otherwise it appears like the normal smoke or dark gray visors and doesn't read as green at all. I was hoping it would because I'm not sure how I feel about my visor being mirrored, but... Guess I'll be waiting for my Army Green mirrored visor to come in from kalevalavisors.com as referenced above 😒. Once my visor and the visor clips from LToysCreations come in I can complete my bucket and start painting.



I've also gotten several other things done or at least received them and started figuring out how they'll be used. I completed most of putting my DT-10 together (minus the scope "glass", for painting purposes,)  so now I just have to prime it and then both of my blasters will be ready for paint. (will probably prime my armor at the same time, and then everything will be ready to paint.)



I also received my Dragon Claw Spikes much quicker than I expected, and can't wait to get my bucket painted and then get these weathered and installed along the crest!

I've spent the last week or so on making my Halloween costume that I'm wearing to a Star Wars/Halloween themed wedding this weekend, but now that I'm done with that I was able to start my first layer of undercoat paint for my bucket that I want to show through on my worn edges and damage areas. I went with a metallic gunmetal gray.

 

Edit 10-26
I went to that Halloween themed wedding today and wore an unmodified Rubies Boba bucket as part of my costume. That was a real eye-opening, educational experience! Can't see, can't hear, can't breathe! Definitely glad I got a dry run experience before I'm done with my armor, some definite helmet modifications are going to be happening!

Love that gunmetal color.

And yeah the nice thing is how customizable you can be with your helmet lol

Thanks! I do too. I started it because I didn't have any silver at the time, and then ended up loving how it looks lol. I think it's going to look great on the damaged edges and such.

I have actually stopped working on my helmet for now, as I've discovered that I don't like how it looks when painting with a paintbrush and I don't own an airbrush compressor (too many lines and paint brush marks.)  I'm working on buying a compressor, and will start back on my helmet and armor once I've obtained one. In the meantime, I've started working on some of my accessories. I got bondo on my detonators and sanded them tonight, hoping to paint them tomorrow (those I don't mind painting with a brush.) Once I'm done with those I plan on putting bondo on my speed reloaders, and my DT-10 mod blaster and then hopefully painting those as well.



Edit 10-30
Got my gauntlets from April Storm today and love them! I can't wait to start putting them together. I'm awaiting a gatling gun add-on from etsy, and a mini digital picture frame and then I can finish those by painting them. I also bondoed my speed loaders today and started putting bondo on my blaster. Things are coming along nicely!

I got my detonators wired today and am pretty happy with the results!




Also, I'm looking for input on my bucket. I'm going to add some olive army green to it to tie everything in, but can't decide if I should put it on the upper cheek or lower. Any thoughts or opinions on it?

Looking great buddy!
As fast as the green on the helmet I'd say lower cheek

Cool, thanks for the input! My wife likes lower as well. I originally was leaning towards upper, but am starting to come around to the lower being green.

My DLT-20A arrived from April Storms recently! (Yes, I decided to get one after all lol, but I'm not sure how many troops I'll be able to take it on. Definitely the local ones, but I'm not so sure I'll be able to get it onto the plane because of its size, so probably not Anaheim. I might buy or try to make a Verp for longer distance troops.) My wife says I'm not allowed to put it together until after Christmas, but we will see about that lol 🤔. I'm also supposed to wait until Christmas to see if I get an airbrush compressor, hence the delay in updates recently. I've reached an impasse in what I'm able to do now, though, since the only thing left to do other than painting is heat forming my armor to my body, so... If I have to wait until Christmas to do any other work, then... I'm probably going to be putting that BFG together in the meantime lol.
