    Got way behind, like years. Usual excuses but I talked to him on his Facebook page and he said he is all caught up and is in great shape. That was a suprise to many here he has owed stuff to for years now. He is banned now.

    Check it out:

    Outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! May or may not be able to do anything but regardless it's nice to see a new source for these amazing helmets.

    Looking great. On the bust the antenna is wrong. It's down on the side a bit mounted on the top side of the earpiece but the antenna actually is supposed to be on top of the earpiece.

    I see. I asked because I am about to receive a McQuarrie Fett helmet from him off eBay and I used to own one of his Clone Trooper buckets. He seems pretty legit to me.

    This is amazing work. I'm really interested in how you mold the helmet - I've scratch built a stormtrooper bucket Atlanthia-style and want to make a mold from it so I can cast a resin version. However, I'm a complete noob at this and have found no reference materials for casting helmets. Anyone got any suggestions?

    Youtube is your friend. Possibly evil as well :)

    May not be exactly what you need but I guarantee what you need is there somewhere. Someone has done a video on everything.

    Thank you guys for complements you guys are great ill post up pics of mold when get it ready ill be doing the antenna greeblies this weekend.i do my molds a bit different it Will be two parts mold because this helmet has indented piece by the nose section which I modify of for greeblies to fit snug and no modifications needed to install might as well do it now then later helmet mold I do with o ring for roto casting on the bottom this allows me to coat it nicely with layers of I'm not cheap on resin I do six heavy Coates helmet should feel like a helmet anyways I use different method for casting I do three coates first of smooth on task two colored in gray and reinforce more with three Coates of black onyx fast setting after experiments of I find this combination to be the strongest both resins are heat resistance so you know what that means no shrinkage no warping lives forever ever.

    Thanks both of you! Some interesting info to note for later. I have to figure out what happens with eye lenses and mic tips, etc. Don't want to wreck the build, even though it's far from perfect...
