    I know that this is probably weird, but what is that in there? Part of a tank, aircraft, model kit part? Was it made of multiple parts, one piece. I've been searching for days and don't know what that inner section is. The RPF is my last hope to solving this question.

    "It's not a booga". Sorry couldn't resist a lame Arnie joke. Could they have just sculpted it from scratch when they were designing it? It isn't totally symmetrical if you look at both sides. Either that or they just grabbed something they thought would look good.

    Nothing is symmetrical on that piece. Is it an original or someones copy?

    Kind of sloppy for a computer like Skynet to make.

    Now that you mention it that entire nose area looks a bit warped.

    The original was sculpted... not machined. There are a lot of imperfections and asymmetry throughout the entire Endo. Some areas more prevalent than others. That is our friend Bill's skull and the best one out there.

    Maybe post this in the Studio Scale section also. The peeps there have done amazing work at picking out model kit details on various starships. Maybe it will pop out to somebody there as being a possible kit piece.

    I am going to try to get this kit and check out all the pieces. Not all parts are shown in the two pictures above. Cool little techy pieces that I can see being used for multiple projects.

    Information came to me from a private source.

    I think these are some of the parts from the correct kit.

    So I go look in my Sideshow endoskull nasal cavity and it's nearly barren of detail.

    There are definitely details there. Here are some shots of my ICONS Endoskull.

    Granted, my pictures (old) suck, and the details are "muddy", but there are details there. I should explain that the project in this thread A new, ambitious, exciting Terminator project. is what prompted me to hunt down what was used.

    And I will quote my own words to Rich - the secret that's not really a secret when it comes to replicating something is that it is equally important to have enough information at your command as it is to be able to model something physically. Both can be as challenging. What I'm saying is that Rich has put in a lot of effort and hard work where I do not have the resource or the time for. And it is just as, if not more, important than the build itself. Much thanks, my friend!

    I had extraordinary help from my unnamed studio scale source. You are very welcome!

    If anyone out there has access to screen used endoskulls, please take some detailed, large pictures of the skull for us (especially the nose and temples).

    Looking for the Bandai kit still, as well as detailed pictures of a screen used endoskull.

    I got my 88 for around $35 on the bay. It's fairly common.

    It has to be the Bandai version. The other versions are slightly different.

    I've got a bid on a full kit now on EBAY. Not sure what is needed. I just want a kit as I think it's cool to have the pieces that make up and Endoskull.
