Looking nice. I totally need one.

Ever thought of asking the 3D modeler guy to just model the helmet?

UPDATE: NOT DONE YET:(

STILL slow going. Been working on the chest box, visor, and flak vest.My paint scheme is based on these pics. Here is what I have so far based on these:






Side:


Front:


I removed the insert (notice hole in the side) as I didn't like how far from the helmet is was so need to grind off material today.

The visor still needs work. I think I am almost there, need to sand and shape it then run some vacuum form tests.

I have been mucking around with this build. I finished the side cutouts to my satisfaction, I had to grind out a lot of the inner material to allow the close plate to fit closer to the side crests.

This is what it looked like before I removed the inner edge material.



Result:





I started a test base painting to see what I am up against. First layers down, I am sanding it smooth then will airbrush it to finish.





I should be getting the correct decals for the phoenix on the front and the side grill thingy in the next few weeks.

I also got in the first ( I think) U wing vest from Wampawear. We had to make an adjustment in shape and size for that front part so it is now back with them to correct it.

I also got the U wing chest box commission for modeling and 3D printing. I have a few issues with accuracy to fix but should be easy to do.





Feels like I might actually finish this!
