lol it does look like a pred/magneto helmet now i like even more. I actually do have a question. i tried my best on making it smooth on the top (without dents) and it still didnt come out perfectly round. any advice? here is another picture of my progress. I painted it a metallic black with silver flecks. I wanted a darker look lol.

The X:Men First Class DVD/Bluray is almost out. September 9th in fact. You may want to wait and see if there are any really good "making of" segments concerning the helmet.

Just a thought.

Thanks:D Yaye i was right, for once:p...tbh i was going to hand out 2 helmets to ppl that lived in europe just to get some feedback and critique. I've been looking at it way too long and trying to find faults with it... Shall we call it a swap so?:)
