I know most of you guys have already seen it, but it's still the crowning piece of my lid collection, so I thought I might as well show it off another time :D.

It started out as a prototype Styrene lid from Vaj of his new SFS line (that I think still hasn't kicked off really) with a few blemishes and cracks that I had to fix first. There's pics of that on my facebook page, so I won't put them on here, I think the finished pics will be enough:

Hey Dan since day one of seeing this lid, it's one of my favourite replicas for sure!!

The level of replication is simply amazing - and it is in the details that sets this apart from a good looking lid to a doppelganger Smile

Things like the crumpled lens for instance..

Thanks for sharing Smile

Here's a few pics of it during my TM photoshoot, just to show how it goes together with the armour (that was pre-weathering the armour though, so excuse the pristine look of it Wink)







And from the same session, the pic that is now my avatar:

Really nice Dan.

The face plate certainly has the Dave M look on the right tube. Maybe even more so than the new so called SFS from TE2 Smile

PS have you weathered the armour to match the lid?

Nope, the armour is not as heavily weathered (although I used the same style and technique). It's matched to my TM lids, but I think I could get away with putting the SFS on and troop in it. Which I'm in fact planning to do very soon :D

Still rocks hard, bro. Every time I see it.

Trooping in this HDPE look is something we should really do, like always. Wink

Hey guys - I just took these two pics to show people how a camera lens distorts a lid and that pictures should be dealt with accordingly, and look how much the lid looks like the PEAS shirt on the left:
