    I always liked the look of the Cobra troops from the GI Joe: Resolute cartoon, so I thought it was time to at least make a helmet.

    I started with an el cheapo skate board helmet and bondoed the mess out it. Still have a ton of puttying and sanding to do before I attach the "skirt". Any comments and criticisms are welcome.

    Looks good so far. I loved Resolute and wish it would have become a regular series. Any ideas what your going to use to cover the face?

    Man I never come over to the props section but this looks good so far! Can you post some reference photos to see what we're comparing it to?
    I thought the Cobra troops had less of an angle on the front of their helmets

    Right now the only images I have to base it on are from the action figure.

    Although I prefer the basic uniform design and color of the new 30th Anniv fig better

    I'll probably combine the two, as I think the darker blue uniform is more classic Cobra than the powder blue. But I really dig the spats!
