    I made a mould of a marmit trooper helmet and made some casts in G26 Biresin.
    The casts came out perfect.
    Here is one that i cut the eyes out of and fitted some green lens.

    I've just got to paint the details and then mount it on a mini helmet stand.

    Very cool! I'd love to see pics or a description of your casting process on that? Were they solid cast and dremeled out or spin-cast?

    I'd also love replace my Hasbro figure's bucket with a casting. [​IMG]

    I made the casts hollow by spinning the resin around inside the mould. A bit like making a full size fiberglass helmet.

    I won't be selling any casts though. Its quite a time consuming process and would not be worth my while making them to sell.

    Cheers,

    Keith.

    Nice, Keith! You do good work on any helmet! Just in case you didn't know, the Marmit Stormtrooper comes with a hero version of the helmet. You've got the high brow stunt that comes with the sandtrooper. Just thought I'd mention that in case you want to expand your collection!

    Looks great. I've often wondered how my marmits would look with green lenses installed. Can we see a pic without the light inside?
