its a nice profile shot of what Ive started. as you can see there isnt detail and its laid on thick...dont worry the detailing will come later.

not much done yet, just laying down the basics. im open to advice or any kind of criticism, but more advice please. So im going to make a mold and cast this puppy when its done and hopefully have it complete before the movie comes out. sorry its been a while since i posted progress.. darn you work. it took me while to cut the ear pieces out of balsa wood.

so after i cut the wood i hot glued a couple of pieces on and then sculped clay to give it angles and demension.

and i added solder around the edge to give it some flare. i need to vacuum form the ear pieces.

so i couldnt get it as smooth as i wouldve liked so i made a hard copy and sanded it and filled in low spots.

so its not too bad, but it still needs work. i also poured a rubber cast just to see how it fit

lets keep in mind that was for funsies and theres still work that needs to be done. so when i get it to where its suppose to be im going to do a clay pour and add the wings and the A and the rest of the detail.

I suspect for long time that how you can make cap helmet. Then it was clearly when I saw the detail section technique from last pics. Awesome >_<d
