    Come on, you could get a stormie helmet and put a stick through them and carry them around like bongos and hit them with bones. It'll be original!

    I am impressed Mike, you might actually finish this!

    Of course I'm doing Black this year as well. but a classier more refined type of Black. My helmet is shipping international as we speak.

    Marie, Any word on when Mom will be availible? Of course with me working 9 pm to 9 am for the time being, I'm not availible. I may have to get a temp flightsuit for now.

    Once I get the box and armor all I need is the blaster and I'm good to go. Oh that and the voicebox but I can get that anywhere.

    Thanks Sis :) but seeing how I just got home, and it's bed time ( yes I know it's only 9:30 in the morning) I'll have to get back to you. It also looks like I'll be doing this all weekend too, so I'm pretty much shot :(

    On the good side, Mike, if you're interested, I might just have a blaster for you. Pics will follow shortly :)

    nice collection Joe,

    When you paint the X-Wing helmet, may I suggest you paint the insidfe a dark color. I painted mine Flat Black. It helps make the entire package look a little more realistic.

    Good tip! Thanks.

    I just got done with the main paint the other day.
    I gave it three coats of White Polyurethane and let it sit in the paint shop under heat to cure. The body filler is seamless so the mohawk looks molded now.

    The only PITA I'm having now is deciding the main paint scheme and then masking it. I might go with a SOC scheme since I have a DP helmet on the way, which I could leave as a canon scheme. Decisions, decisions.

    Here's a cool tip: I was at McGuire/Ft Dix last week and picked up a couple of foam inserts for the kevlar bucket. Works great in both my X-wing helmet and my RPG magnet, I mean combat helmet. ;)
