I guess i'll trundle over to home depot and thunk this Homer bucket down over my head and see if it fits... As long as it does, i'll be in business.. What would you suggest making the dome out of, since I lack one of your fine pre-made ones?

You could use just about anything. A batter's helmet seems to be one of the best options. I do plan on making more domes, but probably not until after the first of the year.

No thoughts on selling this one because I'm probably going to cut it up to make molds. I haven't firmly decided on that plan yet, but I am thinking about it. Price range - if you make it yourself, you're looking at about $10+ for two buckets and (I think) about $5-10 for a sheet of sintra for the cheeks. The dome is the kicker...

I was charging $40 shipped when I was selling them. Add this to what I said above, you're looking at $60+- for all the plastic, plus whatever you want for paint and a visor.

If I do go ahead with making this into a mold, I plan on forcing it to be more narrow on the sides to be kind of a hybrid between real-world and CW toon bucket. PLEASE DON'T ASK ME FOR A PRICE YET!!! ;) ;) ;) I haven't even gone down that road to figure out what I would charge for a full bucket.

I have a mold that I'm working on fixing up right now. I made it using the WOF pattern then vac-formed it using 2mm Sintra. Once I get it reworked, I'll use it as part of this kit.

Hey David, could you show how you bolted on the ears?

It's more telling than showing. Basically, you make the ears, draw the outline on the bucket (lightly with a pencil), figure out the centerline and where you want the bolts. Drill out the holes for the bolts and tape on the ears. Mark from the inside out on the back side of the ears where the bolts will go. Take the ears back off and line up the bolts. Trim out a hole for the bolt head and secure it in place with glue (preferably epoxy or something as strong). Wait for the glue to dry then mount the ears.

I wouldn't say better, per se. Just different. I did this for two reasons. 1) To try it for myself and show a different method of making a helmet and 2) to make something I could use as a mold for mass production.

Having done that. I can say that while it's a different method, it may not suit some people, depending on their personal construction skills.
