    One of many, many projects that remain semi-complete I'm afraid. I went through a major period of self-doubt in my own abilities that led to procrastination that persists to this day. To give you an idea of how long I've been working on my reveal helmet- I helped create the vaderrevealed ezboard/yuku back in 2002 (http://darthvaderrevealed.yuku.com/). I see you were the last person to post there almost a year ago!

    yuku and the RPF have both inspired me to start my reveal, been reading them for years but never joined didn't get a reply from yuku so I joined here, and started my build,
    i hope you find time and your abilities to finish your projects most of all your DV reveal as seeing all the other DV reveals unfold they inspired me to get on with mine and I hope that ours could inspire others to do the same.
    One last note my grandfather ( a very wise old man) told me on many occasions " it doesn't matter when you do it just make sure you do do it or you will regret it "

    So I'm doing it !

    Ok people I'm not going to tell you a joke I'm going to show you one, heaven knows I've got a big challenge on but I love a challenge.
    here is the Vader helmet I bought off a very well known auction site about 4 years ago and stuck it away. NOW looking at all the other reveal projects that are going on and from the past I think I'm going to turn this lump of moulded fibreglass that's trying to look like a sad Darth Vader into the one and only Mr Darth Vader himself.
    OMG the cutting sanding bashing and swearing that's going to be going on in my work shop, I think the nuns are going to have to find somewhere else to live.

    Ok so I've had some bits back and they have turned out OK
    not 100% happy with the holes so I'm going to alter the drawing and get them re-cut but the ones without the hole are fine and dandy just a bit of a clean up and polish and a little bit of tweaking then job done on them little puppies again got more than I need but as before it would be rude not to

    Just picked up a random vintage camera for 10 spares or repair and pulled it apart just out of curiosity I must admit it's not screen accurate but pleased with the overall look of it, picking 2 more up next week just to have a look inside, I know what I should be looking for but they are highly priced at the moment
