    I stitched a piece of hook velcro, about 4" long on either side inside the edge of the liner and then stuck a corresponding self adhesive loop piece inside the helmet. That way i can pull the cover super tight and it stays put.

    My cover is a Mr. Hemming's Workshop cover so it has the elastic all the way around the bottom edge. That's what I sewed the velcro to.

    From the forties not saying you're wrong or anything but that is completely not the part seen in the photo on the last page. These are two completely different things people have made 3D printed parts for the helmets of this piece and it is nowhere near the same shape or design it does look similar but it is not the same at all.

    Why do you say that? To me it looks like the same piece (a double tube like object that looks a lot like the front muzzle piece of a co2 pellet gun), it's simply mounted to different items.

    You might be right. Do you have a picture of such a front muzzle piece?

    Still need better helmet bands, more weathering and better death sticks. Also, I like the red stripe on the deathstick box. Even though it's not accurate to the poster helmet, Ima add it anyways.

    comments and suggestions welcome


    ** I did noticed the ring in the shield was suppose to be on the bottom hole, not the top. I fixed that and will update pictures after weathering and such**

    Got some PMs lately about how I did the decal. There has been a decal by someone in this channel. I used it to do my own:

    I printed out some vinyl and cut it out for a stencil but I feel its a little too big this is 40 mm top to bottom. might make it 35 and see. Also need to dull down the colour its way too petrol and needs to be darker.

    I tried the logo but my stencil sucked because the edges bled. It was pretty small. I think I figured it to be 1-1.25 inches high. can't quite remember just knew it was small.

    i toned down the pertol with a lot of dark washes or gray, black brown to tone it down along with a matte craft sealer.

    Has there been a "group choice" of black bands for the helmet?

    i keep looking at mine and they aren't cutting it

    I use these. They are currently out of black. They are narrow enough and have great grip. I use two just as some have them in the movies.

    Happy Hunting!

    I love the color and the weathering of the blast shield. I think its very close to what they have used. What color did you use?

    A few people have asked about a better torch, Im just printing out a test torch that will have a wire channel to hold the torch like the actual prop and one up from the prop I have got a cheap torch that I can slide inside the body so it will work. I have hidden the button on the 45deg low side against the fabric. Im aboutto print and test it now.

    Any comments for improvement are welcome. I have noticed that some of the props have 10 ribs and others have 13. I stuck with 13. .

    Hey @Chris23 for the blast shield color I used Model Master enamel in 'Blue Angel Blue' as a base. Although you could skip this part cause I thought this was the correct color but it was much too vibrant.

    with that as my base I went over with some Rusto Satin Navy. Lastly, while using a wide brush I quickly painted the entire helmet with watered down black acrylic and the even more quickly wipe it all off. After about 2-3 coats the navy was pretty drowned out.

    I like the color because in some of the screen shots the blast shield looks a navish color, other times it looks black. This color scheme kinda of replicates that look.
