All good Chris, things happen. Anyway, wrecking my brain, my thought process for getting my bucket painted now is getting a colour strip from a paint shop, matching to that, and then finding a match that way, as well as priming it, need to get an updated picture of my robes as well.

Did you get the helmet painted? I thought a paint store could arrange it if you cant do it . They need to brush up on good customer service if they cant help.
Actualy i would take the helmet to a good paint store or hardware and get them to paint it. My outpost has a great painter so its no big deal to me and the team are always keen to help. Get advice from your garrison leader. Dont rush this as the bucket has to be perfect.
All the best with this build.

I'm unfortunately at a standstill due to weather conditions and time, winter seems to have come early out here.

I'm also in the process of getting a RG costume together too. I'm on the finishing stages of painting the helmet. I'm just down in Bowmanville if you'd like to brain storm about it.

You ordered your soft parts from Imperial Boots didn't you? I've just ordered mine. Would you mind telling me how much Duty/taxes was?

Unfortunately I can't remember, it's been too long, I don't think it was over a hundred bucks though.
