Glad to hear it!   ;D

A great idea popped into my head.  I'm going to see how making the mandibles angled so they don't look flat would look on the bucket.

Glad I could help! 

Here's my progress as of last night, not pictured are the cheeks.  I do plan to glass it as per usual and there's a good chance I will be making a mold of it, although that could be down the line. 

Completed rear section



Completed left side mandible; I need to create templates of them then I'm good to go for gluing.  The cheek segments along with this mandible will flow into the earcap vents I have planned. 



Due to the way the bucket sits on me now, as well as knowing that fiberglassing the interior of the bucket will mean I lose around 3/8ths interior space, I will be extending the bucket by a half inch forwards.

VODE!

My ego is a little high at the moment because of well... here ya go.

After making ~20 stencils of the lower mandibles, I finally was able to get the right shape.  Without further ado, here's some images.









I apologize for looking like I'm about to interrogate an informant XD

Here's images of the bucket extension with the cheeks glued on.  The cheeks aren't done yet as I have to figure the bottom angle out once the earcaps get on there.  The mandibles and cheeks will be extended into the vents.  Unfortunately I have to halt my work until Friday since it's AP exam week.

I wasn't able to get too much work in due to the fact that I had to work on two brand new presentations and read 150 pages this weekend, but it's almost done!
All that's left is to pep the areas behind the earcaps to accommodate for the greeblies I'll be putting there. 


Yes, those are aviators being worn comfortably with the pep on, glasses users  8)
