    I just finished this after about 4 weeks of planning,cutting,fitting,gluing,painting,etc. I used alot of different mediums such as artificial snow,"marine" vinyl,various PC parts,plumbing,motors,paint,etc. to achieve my final design which I am very proud of. None would have come to fruition so quickly without Marrow Sun's fantastic interior which gave me a canvas to build hats off to you sir

    I took these pics without flash since they best represent what you see since the interior is so dark. Flash doesn't work out too well.

    As many know it is an original MSH-1 which I painstakingly painted to movie accurate standards over the course of about 6 month's last year. The rangefinder is a MS 3 peice design which I polished the clear resin and installed the LED's from underneath. The stalk is an RA which I machined to movie standards myself.It has an original Borden connector to which I utilized a design inside to complement it's function.

    This is the culmination of so much work I can't even describe it all and many other individuals talents for me to attain and build. To all those I say thank you.

    I can FINNNNNAAAALLY say that my Boba Fett ESB helmet is 100% and totally DONE. (collapses on floor in utter exhaustion).....

    But is it still wearable?

    Good question...yes it is still wearable.....comfortable is another thing as those motor windings in the back tend to have a hunger for hair :lol .

    It'll primarily spend most of its time atop a mannequin as soon as I make the final journey of assembly. The only thing that is right up against my head is the front display over the T-Visor. I didn't test fit for that one peice because I liked it so much and wanted to incorporate it somehow.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys :$

    The artificial snow sparked my curiosity. Where was it used?

    I used it on parts of the silver areas on the inside of the ear peices and the rear peice. The crumbly looking areas.

    I also used it inbetween the top areas of the helmet of the vinyl. I don't like the look of simple painted fiberglass and wanted it to look better....or more cast. Especially the silver peices. Seeing cast aluminum I thought painting over the snow with silver would give the look of rough cast aluminum.

    Different textures to work in the overall design was what I like to go for when doing a bucket interior. So much doesn't show up in the pics its a shame. The size doesn't help with seeing all the little details either.

    Very impressive. Maybe you can get a thin balaclava to keep your hair out of the components. That's certainly a stand out piece. Congratulations. Your hard work has really paid off.
