hello,

i have been getting requests for 2-1b head kits.

i need to make new molds but i thought i would update the head accuracy whilst i was doing it.

I need to invest hundreds of pounds(£) in silicone, resin, plastic and packaging to do a run of these.

if you are interested please state below so i can prioritise projects. if there is little interest i will work on other items instead.

U.S.A. shipping prices went up twice last year (blame usps)

rest of the world unaffected. ships from U.K.

£225 U.K. pounds sterling £11 pounds postage within the U.K. (special delivery)

£225 U.K. pounds sterling £25 pounds postage rest of the world (tracked and insured)

£225 U.K. pounds sterling £32 pounds shipping to the U.S.A. (tracked and insured)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
xe.com has £225 at $318 U.S. Dollars

A typical kit below but please note i will be updating the sculpt. Availability is after June/July/August i would imagine.

I was going to ask if an option of a head without the resin mic installed would be a good idea.

Cutting the resin mic off CLEANLY is pretty tricky.

Maybe casting it without the mic might be more tricky. The area where the nose meets the mic has to be really really thin for a good fit.

Opinions please on what you think??

Yes I’d really like one without the mic piece to allow for the real part to be installed.

i will point out the changes later, but it will be almost every area of the main head part, neck and neck ring unchanged.

biggest change probably the nose, it needs bulked out, especially the bridge of the nose,

texture as well.

here is a customers head (sorry i can't remember who) this is the direction it will be going, more heavy texture in places and bulked out nose

congratulations on getting a new place, i'm not jealous at all :D

i've started on the rework today, it's going rather quickly.

concentrated mainly on the rear half, deleting the small line, adding filler, reshaping etc..

i'll update with some pics once i have something worth showing.

if anyone has any ideas or suggestions on what they would like to see on a casting please chime in.

or if you know of something that is "off" on the sculpt please say.

i think i will recess 4 holes on the sides of the front half for the little magnets i supply, so no need to drill out the resin cast ones, just plop in the magnets and you are done. the location of them is being moved to a more accurate location.

as for the other 4 pieces that go on the rear half, from experience i think the mold could get damaged easily so i will leave them off.
i had spikes on the ver.1 casts and they tore up the silicone trying to get the casts out.
