289th Airborne trooper *WIP*

Post by CT44 on Wed Apr 08, 2009 1:09 am

Well, I decided to make an airborne trooper for my legion. Enough said.



This is a WIP because I want some tips for making the helmet better.
Sorry for bad photography. Embarassed

C&C Welcome. Smile

This airborne trooper looks quite unique with a backwards body and half a clone visor. So it looks quite good. But as a opinion add some slanted red lines heading towards the visor to make it look more like a airborne trooper.

Oh yeah I would just like to ask one question. How did you get rid of the bottom half of the visor?

Eraser I'll bet. I've seen several endorsements of such a tool used in removing printing from bricks.

Brasso probably...

It needs some clay. Make a mouthpiece like Mike Zulu did with his.

Edit: I've been searching for a while and this clay mouthpiece is impossible to find.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't see that. And you used just a normal pencil eraser?
