    At first I thought I woud have a problem fastening the damper to the case, because of its shape.

    But after I used my 1337 drawing skillz... :p

    ...I made two neat little brackets, that did just the job. Screwed to the case with one laagbolkopinbus-screw. (trans ?)

    I also filled the two giant holes on the side of the skull with some polystyreen.

    And with some modelbuilding parts...

    Playing with the design ( offcourse the picture of the real skull beneath it)

    Spraypainting.

    And now it looks like this.

    Maybe I will work on those innerparts with some black paint.

    Well, After some second-thoughts and much deliberation, I have decided to re-do the entire skull. I stripped the foil off and I will try to smooth out the skull as much as I can. Then I wil coat it with the 'chrome' spraypaint. I tried it out on the Machine-mod skull, and that turned out very good ( better then the foil ). :sigh:

    Superglue to the rescue? It could represent a reprogrammed terminator. They usually get smashed to pieces and then reassembled by the Resistance.

    Thanx everybody for your support. I hopped over to a medieval store in Belgium, and got me a slightly different Markus Mayer skull. This one allready has "evil" eyes, but unfortunatly, the teeth are all wrong. That will take me the most time, I guess.

    I'd suggest going with the caps. Airbrushing would easily make the teeth look silly.

    They call it " polystone" but thats just BS. its plastic. :)

    My friend Kevin got me a nice set of demonstration dentures.
    [​IMG]

    Slicing and dicing.
    [​IMG]

    Cut a piece out of the skull.
    [​IMG]

    Next I will fit it in, and finish the skull.

    This is the left arm, this one grabs the front of the case.
    [​IMG]

    And the right side, which holds the gun with the laserled.
    [​IMG]

    Now I have to come up with two elbowpieces that attach to the case.

    BTW, did you see this one : Transforminators !
