    After searching and searching for a decent helmet and after being told "good luck" finding one, i've decided to break out the sculpting tools and buy tons of clay. Now I need good reference photos. Can anyone help out there?

    Wow, this is quite an undertaking. Have you modeled stuff in clay before? I might be interested when you finish.


    Thanks

    Weird... I was just talking to a bud 'bout this today (well he was telling me 'bout it) when we were building his 501st Clone up, he told me 'bout some really awesome RC lids. Shoot me a PM and I'll forward what I know. :)

    im halfway through one myself,

    unfortunatly i had to pack it away until i move house.

    Im using sintra and rigid foam.

    Its quite an easy helmet to get down if you get a good understanding of the shape and proportions.

    good luck

    thanks for all the responses and info. I have done many sculpts in the past, this will be my 4th bucket. Sometimes when the helmet you really want is not avail. ya gotta do it yourself. I will post progress pics from start to finish if someone will host for me.

    Thanks to this thread, I now know what clone I'm going to do after I finish my Biker Scout (sometime this summer). Thanks a lot for showing me what to blow my money on next, lol.

    I don't mean to hijack your thread, but here's as far as I got with my RC sculpt a while back.

    I scrapped it in favor of other projects.

    I suppose I could start another one.
