    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.

    I wouldnt sweat the size.

    Technically the clonnies outta be 5'7 as per Morrison....but in the films Morrison is on a platform to be closer to Obi Wan....roughly 6 foot I presume.

    My clonesuit is being sculpted on a 6 foot mannequin. Just makes sense.

    Ewan's a bit shorter than 6' but clone height is generally 5'10 to 6', so a 6' mannequin is canon enough. The visual dictionary for ROTS states all clones are 5'10 while the SW.com databank says they are 6'.

    That is a very sharp looking helmet, godzilla. I hope that you will have some more pictures of it to show us soon. It has a really clean look to it.

    My helmet is not screen accurate, but my head fits in there. I feared that anything that was too accurate would smash my nose too much. So the front slopes forward more than the screen accurate version.

    The nature of a cgi prop is that they're not always precisely the same size on screen all the time anyway. The on-set effects technicians take good notes as to the dimensions of the set so that things are as accurately comped as possible, but there are discrepencies. A lot of times the sizes are even intentionally cheated for an actor's eyelines or the framing/composition of the shot.

    The MTT's in Ep1 come to mind as the most inconsistently sized CG models ever. They were rather small when they ran over Qui Gon, and then they were the size of a blimp hangar when they were rolling across the plains into Theed.

    Mark,

    I have emailed you and already sent the Kellog's Episode II helmet you wanted. I sent it early because here in Eastern Ontario we got a really big ice storm, which makes it immosible to drive ANYWHERE.. I haven't heard back from you. Please pay $35 to my Paypal account as soon as you can. Thanks so much.

    keep up the good work mate.

    Cheers

    hi guys,im still working on the kelloggs conversion.ive got the seam at the dome filled and sanded smooth,i have the inside reinforced,the ears are glued and sanded,so far all i have to do is enlarge the teeth and drill out the vent grooves on the side and screen them out.Theres only one part that i just CANT get to look right,or just work at all,its the "fin"at the top of the dome.I tried using the templates,but they arent high enough,and the curve doesent fit the shape very well.No matter what i do,either the fin wont stay together,one side is too short even though i triple checked,or the whole thing is lopsided,could someone please help?

    Whoa that one looks awesome. Who is the maker? I am still trying to find the perfect helmet for my clone. My dream would be a KAW one, curently on the big auction site. Too bad my Keller project has to come first hehe.
