Thank you and no problem. ;) It annoyed me that the waistband is constantly hiked up. :P

The second point in my list I posted a few days ago is also cleared. It looks better now B)

I bought 3 different white-colors.
mat silk 301
mat 05
gloss 04

gloss 04 fits best:

So ...... the armor is already finished (except the boots; I'll paint the sole white last) Da ja nun die Rüstung soweit fertiggestellt ist (außer die Stiefel; die Sohlen möchte ich erst ganz zum Schluss weiß lackieren) and so it will be exciting -  11stormTrooper.gif   cool.gif

What do you think? Is it ok so?

Who can help me with the voice decoder, because of the assembling of the helmet? Is there anything to care about BEFORE gluing the helmet?

Can someone help me, please!?

Is that right so, or shall I cut more or less off?

The Ends will be rounded as in the CRL's specified (The ends of the frown are rounded, not tapered to points (not like ANH/ESB) and not squared ended like the ESB MKII):

Today I did some work and fixed the aerators and painted the frown and the vocoder black (I hope it looks good, what do you think?)

It will be not long and the Stormie becomes ready :smiley-sw013:

Yes, I remembered, what you said about the CRL's :D

I cannot see the movie accurate helmets, because the resolution is too bad. But I'll wait of the assessment and in the worst case I have to paint it again with mat black :unsure:

 

And the rest of the helmet? Does it look good to you?

Thank you for the pictures, Paul. :) I already searched in google, but there are so many of the "original" helmets that I don't know which is the REAL original :(

More trimming on the eyes? I must confess that I do not dare to trim more of the eyes. Does it look bad?

 

(I forgot to post pictures of the trimming of the eyes, I think)

And after a few days I was finally able to come up with the tool I need to glue the helmet ... Actually the "missing tools" were only two black/orange clamps :P

Front:
