im probably going to sell it to one of my friends that no nothing about 405th. theyll think its awesome. they'll pay top dollar for that thing! i just cant tell them about this website. so i guess, no new members from my help.
see, now my kids ( 12 and 8 yrs old...) are going to flip out and love this. I show them all of the suits on here and they pee them selves. they will dig this and want to buy it. I can definatley fix the visor and seam. its better than sculpting sanding sanding sanding sanding etc and finally casting or whatever. its cool to have a semi rigid base to start with in almost the right shape. how much would it cost you guys to get this far with paper and bondo etc...if he paid 40 bucks for it and its a usable base, as much as i hate rubies with every molecule of my body, they may have just done some of you more clever guys a cheap favor. just my humble noob opinion and the opinion of a dad on a budget with halo freaks/maniacs for kids. it might be a good halo-ween after all!
ps--anybody else pick one of these up yet? curious to see how they fare across the country., like rubies star wars masks/helmets would be awesome in new york by me, Id go visit family in delaware and boba fett was warped and painted by a person with no arms or eyes..juuuuuust wondering
