Warspirit's bucket
« on: Sep 06, 2015, 01:13 PM »
Hi everyone,

So I started my work on my bucket. It's a entire scratch built project, except for the dome for witch i use a skateboard helmet. Bucket will have a legacy style visor.





I was thinking at first to put two RF, but after finishing the first I am rethinking this, not that the first one is not good but just because of the work. Knowing myself i'll surely do it but i'm not tempted right now :).

Thanks Vod !

Work still going on. Had a good armor day with a friend today and made good progress. Cheeks are cut and the structure built. I mounted the cheek and used metal bars for support for the cheek bone. I had some trial and errors but with the help of Rehoj we were able to fix it.

WarSpirit, what material did you use for your ear caps?  Is it layered Sintra?  The angles and the cuts are looking very sharp.  This is where I had the most trouble on my built.

Lookin foward to seeing the final result.

@ Balou34

Yes the ear cas are made from 3 mm layered sintra based on boba fett helmet template the base was extended since my helmet is taller than boba. For the body 4 3mm layer. The angles were rough sanded with a dremel and a 60grit rotary tip. The cap a 3mm layered sintra and the top a 2 layer 3 mm sintra. Rough sanded with 60grit again.

Thanks vod,

Work went well today. I was able to assemble my top and the face plate togheter and open the visor. I'm missing a second layer to the face plate than i'll be able to put the ears on.

I've put fiberglass bondo inside the helmet to fix everything and it sems good.









Comments always welcome !

Thanks Vod,

I'm quite happy on how it's going. I'm hoping that by the end of the week everything will be assemble and bondoed.

Ok added a second layer of 2 mm sintra on rhe face plate to give it more thickness. Result mow i'm thorn. I draw a T-visor just to see the look and now i can't decide what i like most, open legacy visor or traditional T-visor darn. What do you guys think ?



Also as you can see i started work on my RF's. I saw Mer-Sonn take on rf with a clear plastic with engraving and i knew i had to go with that. I love the shape on how it's turning out and i'll assemble the other one tonight. Fir now i built sintra stalks just to see hiw things look but i'll need aluminum ones.

Do your own style of both visor styles Vod! Those RFs are looking awesome btw. Great work so far!
