I cut the bucket into 3 pieces I kinda like the idea of having the jaw loose for now so if someday I ever figure it out is like to get it to drop down and the face plate raise like in the movie so please criticism is welcome oh up also ordered some el sheets for the eyes and hands I just got it in the mail today and tried it out I so can't wait to put this sucker in

A nice wet sand would do wonders on your helmet. Get some fillable/sanding primer and paint it up. Let it dry and then dunk the helmet in water and start sanding away with a nice wet sanding sandpaper. It will take out all the little scrapes and pin holes leaving you with a very nice smooth surface. It looks really awesome and you've come a long way in a short amount of time! Soon I'll be sharing some of our new animated buckets. We just need to insert plugs into our mold case and we're ready to rock and roll!

Ok its been a few days but during the rain and the storms I did a lot of pepakura and sat at a table doing it for hours on end I'm embarrassed to say how may lol but it was a lot well anyways I got both shins and the abs done and needless to say I'm not the smallest of people so I'm going to have to add a little to the abs to get it to wrap around all the way but here is a pic of the shins Image
