C6...good luck getting one though. The only ones available are poor recasts. AFAIK the only other options are the Kellogg's and the Rubies (the former being the better one of the two).

The Kellogg's is larger and better shaped overall. The Rubies is very small and stretch out funny. It just looks kinda weird. The kellogg's can be modified to look pretty dang good.

Do you have any pics of a modified one and what things do you do to make it better

Doing a Kelloggs is kind of fun and you learn alot. I did one and posted everything on the clone boards. You can see every step in the convertion

My Kelloggs Saga

Here is a pic of the finshed helmet, minus the visor that I have not gotten around to yet.

I think I'm finally going to finish mine. I actually patterned it almost three years ago and already made the mold. I cast one helmet but never painted or assembled it.

This is an old pic of the master while I was still working on it. I fixed four or five little things before the mold was finally made. I have one other thing to finish for someone, but this helmet is next on my list to debut. It's been a long time in coming and I'm so close to the finish line.

Thanks... The final is actually better than what's in the photo. I used that picture to nail down the last few little revisions to the sculpt. I put at least 100 hours into patterning that thing. It was so much work that I totally burned out on the project for a long time.

But now that I've got my Master Replicas EpIII helmet, I totally want to finish this thing. I compared them and my E2 is a touch larger than their E3. I was worried that it would be a lot bigger, so I'm glad that they weren't shy about the size of theirs. I think they'll look good side-by-side.

Wow. That is incredible. Your final product will be quite a helmet. Are you sure you did not get the CGI files?

CMANavy: I wouldn't have believed the Kellogg's could look so good. Great job. :thumbsup

godzilla: The 100 hours shows. That sculpt's a beaut. Looking forward to seeing the finished lid beside an MR Episode III. :thumbsup

I just got some good photo refs and mathematically scaled all the dimensions. It's a lot of sculpting, but a lot of calipers and calculators too.

The lifesize cardboard standups have always been a huge benefit to me. The E2 clonetrooper standup has sort of a fisheye perspective so it wasn't much good for scaling, but it helped me nail a couple details that I've never seen anywhere else.
