    I have 2 original screen-used suit and pants (both man and woman).... there's a pic of my female Starfighter tunic here in this forum somewhere. last summer, I hired a very talented local seamstress to replicate 3 copies for me and my family. But it's been almost a year with no progress so...

    Three Strikes and you're OUT!!

    Wow... Just Wow :eek I was recently contacted by a customer who bought something I made years ago from another collector in Canada. Customs was holding the item and insisting on another $400 bucks for import duties because they assume the item was manufactured in Canada. The item in question...

    Slush-Casting Latex: Hydrocal or Ultracal Mold???

    Howdy, I have a personal project I'm working on that will be cast in slush latex. It's been years since I've made anything from latex. I remember some stuff I learned from my short stint working in SPFX make-up, but it's been too long and my memory is rusty :$ Anyhow, is the standard mold...

    Buck Rogers Starfighter Helmet & BSG (TOS) Headset

    Steve, The pic your looking at is a screen-cap from the Movie before he had the custom-made helmet. I think for the movie they had just one helmet with the leather liner. I've never seen it used in the TV series. Nick

    Buck Rogers Starfighter Helmet & BSG (TOS) Headset

    My screen-used Starfighter helmet just had a thin 1/4 inch thick black foam liner all around. I'm pretty sure it had additional padding inside to make it wearable. Most of the helmets made after the movie/pilot had the white molded styofoam liner (it's one of those bicycle helmet dome liner)...

    Buck Rogers Starfighter Helmet & BSG (TOS) Headset

    Just got back from Academy Sports. The football helmets I looked at costs $40 bucks... not $30 like I thought :$ I decided not to spend 40 bucks just for a few pieces of foam padding. Gonna look around for cheaper options. Nick

    Buck Rogers Starfighter Helmet & BSG (TOS) Headset

    Thanks Funky, BTY, I was looking for helmet interior padding at Academy (Don't know if you have them in Tulsa but it's a sporting goods store). I found some student football helmet with these really cool "sci-fi looking" padded liners that attaches with velcro. I've looked on-line but can't...

    Buck Rogers Starfighter Helmet & BSG (TOS) Headset

    Model SM12A is the one with the in-ear audio-in piece and the ones used in the TV series. They cost allot more than the SM10A (pictured in my previous post) which don't have the ear piece. Nick

    BSG collection Display

    Always wanted to attend Megacon but I just couldn't fit it into my schedule. BTY, did you guys purchase the space for your display or was it provided by the con organizer? Nick
