Well after a LONG time, I've nearly come to the end of my Dropship helmet build.
There are a few things left to replace, including a longer mic boom, the mic boom connection, and a few nuts. I also need to spray the inside of the ears black...when i can be bothered to take the suspension liner out again! its not an easy job.
I decided to get as close to the original prop as possible, and have added all the weathering...even if alot of this weathering might have been done after filming, over the years.
The right ear (looking at it) is a resin cast, from a kit. The left is is completely made from scratch using the correct parts...polaroid, model parts, etc etc
Thanks to everyone on the Alien Legacy Forum who had an input, and thanks to the prop owner Gio, who supplied some great photos!
Hope you all like it as much as i do.
