I was lucky enough to be given a bunch of Star Wars toys & a few other bits from someone at work who had been clearing out some of their children’s old toys & thought I may like them.
Amongst them were a Hasbro Clone Trooper Helmet & a Radica Tank assault Game, along with some blasters that I’ll deal with in another thread
I especially liked that there was a Radica Tank game as I’ve seen Electro binoculars made from these here on the RPF.
I found the Doopydoos Resin kits for the Radica Game on eBay, I had a sheet of thin plastic (fire escape sign) to make a template to cover the big Hasbro Clone Helmet visor & some spray paints in the garage.
My model making/painting skills aren’t up to much so there wasn’t going to be any sculpting, filling etc. & I knew I wasn’t going to be able to do much more than given them a new coat of paint.
I actually wanted both to still “work” once I’d finished so the helmet still needed to be able to come apart to access the batteries & this meant I’d have to live with the seams (not sure I’d have the skill to fill them anyway).
