Thanks to u Duncanator
You did all the heavy lifting on this. I just posted a few pictures.

I have castings of the interior panels that I'll try to take pictures of tonight. They are raw castings, so they don't have any of the lights or buttons installed.
The inside bits are even more crunchy than the outside! They used truck tires for a bunch of the details.

Sorry it took me a bit to post these. Pesky employment....

The interior of the helmet is made in three pieces, and as I said before, these are raw castings so there may have been other details added on top of these.

Here's how they fit. I just shoved them in place, but they don't quite fit since they aren't trimmed yet.

And here's the front piece out of the helmet. The ruler has centimeters and inches on it, and the table is inches.

Hey Joberg - did you see the truck tires! Just wait, there's more!!

Here is the port side rear interior panel. Just look at those rows of tires! A wonder to behold!
I think I recognize some Plastruct parts too.

Next is the Starboard side panel.
Again with the tires! You'd think they had a bunch left over from some previous models, or something.
Although I have to admit that they make pretty interesting buttons, vents, sensors or whatevers.

Wow - interesting. I can see some lorry transmission shafts, rear axles, some tank drive wheels and idlers, a bit of a motorbike engine and what looks like an engine timing belt cover for starters :D

I was hired to take a mold off of a production casting - not a screen used, finished prop. Part of my deal was getting a casting for myself.
So that makes mine a second generation casting.
Your a “Prince” for sharing this with GEEK 1138 and the legacy of Alien.

Yep, those extra tires they had in the model shop surly make for an interesting use of greeblies:p(y)...and knowing that the interior of those helmets were not seen by the spectator...just the actors;)

Wow, I've been stalking the internet for years and I've never seen this many good, high information pictures come out. Thanks!

Awesome thanks...good to see the hardcore members flexing their kit bashing muscles.

I am in the process of working out where the etchings go and it's a bit confusing...perhaps some advice please
So I have a cast segment, courtesy of Promod, from this etching plate, and I have modelled everything on the plate.

Trouble is most of this stuff doesn't appear to be on the helmet. I've found a few key parts that do fit but a lot of it seems to be unused. Was this just extra to requirements, so they could pick the bits they liked most or are they used elsewhere on the spacesuit. There is also a lot that isn't here, so was there another etching plate?

Also there seem to be differences from helmet to helmet. The Ripley/Lambert helmet has a mirrored banding across the chin strap but this shot of the Kane helmet does not

Duncanator, if I could ask u for a few close up shots of the back wing etchings and possibly the under chin strap that would be most awesome. It looks like the etchings on your helmet are symmetrical? I think your casting must be from the Ripley helmet?

No problem!

I'll try to snap some pictures tonight.
And I think you may be right about the Ripley helmet and mine.

The circular discs with the row of bolts around the circumference are EMA manways.
Don’t think these are EMA parts because there are too many bolts on the EMA part (20)
I think its an Airfix part as well.- the top of a Pill box from one of their Combat sets ( 1/32 scale) with 16 bolt heads on the part. It’s a rare box set nowadays.

GEEK1138, Fantastic work.
