    so on and off over three years i built my own custom clone, when i started i had no idea about molds, casting, fibre glass or bondo. but this build slowly taught me all those (with the help of youtube). The reason its taken me three years is cos i always have 3-5 projects on the go at the same time.
    By sept last year i finally finished this off, wore it twice ( halloween parties) and sold it to a guy why is opening his own sci fi museum in DEVON south england. So maybe somone somewhere will spot this!!!

    let me know if anyone does!
