    Default AT ACT Driver helmet

    This is my attempt at the AT ACT driver helmet. The design is the same as the shore trooper with a few extra greeblies.

    First I gave it the textured look. I used a different paint from the shore trooper which was a bit more textured and probably too much for this helmet. It really is grainy. The screen ones are textured but not this much. It was rustoluem textured as opposed to the rustoleum cast iron I used last time. I gave it a coat of rustoleum hammered brown over the top to tone it down a bit. I couldn't be arsed to sand it all back again but in hindsight I should have used the cast iron.



    An here is the semi finished helmet. I still need to make a visor, glue the top section (after I make the visor) and weather it. Weathering will also hide the over spray I had on parts.

    It's about 100 hours to print + whatever fails along the way.

    yeah, most bits are 5-8 hours. I just set it off in the evening and it's done by the morning.
