    It still needs the Blast shields & the Comlink.
    what do you think?

    I think it's pretty awesome. I've always liked that design of yours, although I prefer the "yellow" design the best. I feel they should have used those designs for the clones instead of what they ended up with. The clones just look like bobble heads.

    I modified it to actually fit the Gentle Giant bust.
    I then put the pauldron from the Kotobukiya Sandtrooper on it to get a feel for the final look.
    I photoshopped some dirt & added the stripe to see how it looks.
    I couldn't remember the paint scheme :
    waddya think?

    HA. Good man, Slave1. On that note, I shall also keep my knowledge to myself. These helmets are impossibly OUTSTANDING. I will tell you, however, that I recently spoke to my very good friend, who will indeed be wearing one of these buckets. B)

    I suppose I should update you guys on my lifesize helmet;
    I have weathered it & added the Mock-up of the visor.
    This visor is made of ABS painted silver with a welding visor trimmed to the approximate shape.
    The actual visor will be made of Aluminum .

    Here is yet another revision of the basic shape that we are going for.
    i feel this one is closer to the original design.
    keep in mind that it is still a work in progress.

    And here it is next to the original concept

    You guys always seem to impress me.
    I'd settle for the 1/7 scale.
    Hmmm I have a xtra Stormie head from my Koto kit. B)
