Well done!

I vote color scheme #2. And those cheeks are awesome. I'll have to do that for my second bucket

Ori'vor'e Vode ;) glad you like it.

First layer of bondo was done yesterday, now it's time for my most hated favourite part - sanding  :laugh:, though I will have to wait for better weather so I can sand it outside.
In the meantime i started building handplates, inspired by airborne DW troops:

(the darts will be repainted)

Also I decided to choose the second color scheme (and modify bucket's colors a bit):

After the helmet will be casted I'll add forehead plate (probably will make it out of layered sintra [Fenn Rau & new stormtroopers from Rogue One were my inspirations]). I Think it'll give it quite a unique look.

That hand armor/darts is awesome! Great idea, vod! I may have to make something similar.

Hey guys :)
I'm still alive & working on my bucket.
At the moment I'm almost done with bondo/sanding phase (minus the ears & rangefinder, because they need much more work) . All i have to do now is to correct dome's shape in few spots & smooth everything out.
Pics:


Hope you like it.

I really like the design of the Rebels helmets. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

It took me almost a year, but now I can proudly present you a first cast of my helmet  ;D





I think it was totally worth all that time and money I spent for it.
Sure, it's not perfect - it was my first attempt at roto-casting so it has some imperfections like minor dome distortion and uneven interior but other than this it looks fine to me.
Soooo...what do you think Vode?  :)

That is super impressive man  8)  8)  8)

I have mad respect for anyone who does a scratch build, really clean build right there, and so is that cast! Looks really nice!
