Putting flat panels of sintra where the cylinders use to be and then greebing those up would work.

Yea, I think I was heading towards a boxier look, using the sintra will probably be my best option :)

Just make sure that you remove the cocking mechanism. That's a solid concept for a mav, just make sure to take out all the blaring "nerf" characteristics.

Dont know why that made me chuckle. You can always just change the shape of it, so its less familiar and less nerfy.

Roll with whatever you can come up with. Another thing that would help is removing the texture on the plastic and the tactical rail on top of the cocking mechanism.

Yea I basically plan on rounding out and flattening all of the texture on the entire thing.

That's similar to what I was trying to say at our last armor party. We can mod the shape of the slide while keeping it's sliding functionality.

I just really like the sound. It's the greatest.

Can't wait to see how this ends up looking.

Here's my helmet so far, without bondo, to show how and where I sealed the dome and sides. There's also glue stuff under the ear caps.


 
and with bondo,



yes I know there's an area that I haven't covered in bondo on the dome, but I'll get it covered no worries. I'll be covering the cheeks and pretty much the whole thing with some sort of bondo. The white is sintra. It's glued there with krazy glue.

Sanding is my life, you should see the staff I made, sanding everyday.
