So here I am starting another build. Well, not much of a build since this will be chromed by a professional workshop.

Got the head from Madrid Boba from C3PO builders, complete with the brass parts and lighting kit. Very well made cast, almost no cleanup needed:



What was needed to be done was to hollow out the 2 eyes, mouth, top of the head for the piston, and the 2 holes for the ear discs:







Here are the eyes dry fitted to check fit. Really nice!



And the piston:



And that's it for now. I have sent it to the workshop for chrome spraying. It will be done by this company Coverchrome. You can see their work here on a Daft Punk helmet:

This is a longer video, but it is amazing to watch the process. And WHAT AN AMAZING CHROME!

So I have dropped the head off at the workshop, and it will be 2 weeks later before I update this post, after I get the chromed beauty back! Oh the anticipation!!
