Nice, easy bucket to start off with. Great practice lid and cheap to procure. This one sits on my shelf and is used to show off to visitors. Wink These are pics I posted over on FISD last year.

Along with my mate's full ATA kit, I had this spray painted with a basic white with flex additive (the stuff they use for plastic bumpers and bonnets) for £40 at a local car garage, the guy was deeply amused. Smile I also used lighting gel for the lenses, Keith's mic-tips, Mike's sticker kit, hand painted ear-caps and frown, Sharpie'd vocoder/black detail on ears, Seals Direct rubber trim.

Sealing the screws with hotglue:


Oops, spot that alignment mistake? I had to re-drill that hole. Wink


Gappy? Weren't they all!? Smile


Finished pics:

Nice build, Aaron.
I recently grabbed one of Terrel's B-grade helmets for a cheapish experiment and it went togetehr pretty nicely.
It was my first HIPS helmet and I found it quite nice to work with. Softer than ABS.

Very nice Aaron Smile

The ata kit is a nice kit, both in cost price and ease of assembly. The one I had took about 2 hours to fully trim and assemble. The hips was very easy to work with. And as we can see it's a helmet that looks great when finished off.

Thanks for sharing Smile

Easy to tear, too! Had a few near rips with it. I used a single paper punch on the corner of the cap and back at the top of the ears to stop it tearing there. Smile
