I asked for advice from our GML and I'm going to return this overall.
The search for a new one is on... any tips where to find one is appreciated.

Nice! Good luck!

Biltemas super glue with spray kicker is very good when putting it together.

Ok, that's good to know.
I managed to get some time in the workshop today.

I've never worked with putty before but it went quite well. Some spots needs to be filled one more time... at least.

I also trimmed out one of my hand armors while waiting for the putty. I slipped a little bit leaving some ugly marks.
I think I'll try to fix it with that goop stuff instead of putty.

Nice! Don't forget to sand, sand, and then sand some more...

Btw, I'm looking for a mesh/net for my own use and I remembered that the GM has a mesh on the back of the helmet. Have you found one already? I'm myself looking at this: http://www.jula.se/catalog/bil-och-gara ... at-504762/ . With some black paint it might be ok.

Yes, I have. All the GM helmet makers ships mesh,lens and cowl with the helmet nowadays.
The one I got is a normal mosquito net but it's not the loosest one. It's a little bit stiffer.

The one you found sounds really good though I don't know what you're going to use it for.
If it had been a little bit longer I would probably have used it myself for my helmet.

Looks like a good start! Galactic marines are super cool and it will fit in great with Patriks Bacara costume if you guys ever troop together, now we just need a Ki Adi Mundi for you to shoot at. Wish you luck on your build!

Thanks!
I think I need to hurry up and get ready. Rumour has it that commander Bacara will soon deploy nearby...!
