So round about this time last year, I found the 405th and decided to try my hand at pepping some ODST pieces, I got the Dutch helm, and some various chest pieces pepped. I then finished the helmet minus a visor, still need to get in contact with SB bout one..Then I felt the need to build another quick helm, so I pepped up the smooth recon helm. finished yesterday. here's the two of them together

and some close ups of the recon...

Any suggestions? Any ideas on a color scheme? Im thinking dark gray with a hazard orange stripe right down the middle.

Nice, keep updating the thread, I'd like to see more as you progress! And as Imperator said, how long did each helmet take you?

Well the Dutch took round about 2 months due to some mistakes I made in the pep stage that had to be fixed with the bondo, but the recon took like almost no time at all, its a really quick build. Next up is the new ODST chest plate and such...I've got a gauntlet in the works at the moment but Im going to start it over..specially once the super HD gauntlets come out.

He's around the forums, he does vac forming of the odst suits and visors etc. once you become an infantry man you'll be able to see the classifieds where he posts runs every once in a while.

Infantry man? Is that like the next rank or something? I hope so because I need that visor. I'm doing a helmet next and that is a vital part.

Hey 405th! Got a bit more done over these last two weeks annddd also have gone back to fix some old things, such as the crappy bondo job on the dutch helm. But in other news I have the chest, and the right shoulder all finished! Got the other shoulder resined and the center gut plate rondoed. Also got the right Gut plate resined.

So after wayyy too long I finally have an update. I completely redid the bondo work on my helmet and repainted it as well as got my SB visor into it. Nothing else really to report, schools been hectic so not as much time as I'd like to have. But with out much further ado I present to you my new helm:
