Thanx AF.
I posted these pics in the WIP pic folder on my facebook and Ter-n Solo gave me a few pointers on where to go with it next. I'm not going to touch it before Sunday to give the black plenty of time to cure/set/harden/dry/whatever. I do NOT want to redo the whole kriffing thing again  :P

We live and we learn. The cure time on the back of the paint can is not to be questioned :D

That effect could have been caused by using 2 different types of paint, like mix Krylon & Rustoleum. I stick with the good old Krylon, (mostly because it's a tad bit cheaper). I have also encountered this effect when my tape didn't stick completely.

The second paint job looks great though.  8)

Krylon satin finish aluminum and Rustoleum flat black was a good part of the kriff up. The Krylon and cheap shebsed Walmart paint work well together though.

I don't think it need greebles, but you can give it some personality, I have kill stripes on mine, along with a few other little doodles

I have a couple ideas... Nothing big. Have no idea how to build them though. Gonna have to wait for the inspiration to hit me and find the thing(s) that'll be "juuuust right"

I always thought on these since the helmet bubbles out in the back it'd be cool to cut some vents in and maybe a fan, but that's just me.  Maybe an antenna or something on one side?

The 3 grooves under the cheeks have been drilled out on each side to let air in. Working on a small assembly with a fiberglass dowel coming out a little bit as an antenna. Once I get some more work done on it tomorrow, I'll get some pics up.

Was originally going to go with and M-DSB Assassin with a red visor


Pics used when asking about the visor color was of the MDSB Enforcer, pretty much everyone at the time thought red looked better with the color pattern


I acquired one of Falin's ComMando buckets and now I'm at a toss-up as to whether I should stick with the red or go with black or green

Unless you're getting a reflective visor the tint won't be as obvious as your mockups. Empire Fett sports a green visor and you'd never know.

Oh okay, I didn't realize what you got. Are you sure it will be dark enough?

I'm thinking hoping the red will. My big thing is hoping the sheets will be big enough  :o
If I have to, I can use both sheets of the red
