    Thanks Thain for the extra pics, got back home yesterday.
    After looking at them for a while I have noticed

    That the number of holes on the right side of armor vary but they are the same location on all helmets ( if they are there)
    There is no front and back parts to the armor? (its a complete ring)
    The trading card helmet is different to the ones in the rest of the shots we have got so far.
    The poster one looks more like the "standard helmet" not the card one.

    Still hope to get a shot of the back of he helmet Im sure there is a oval groove on it.


    After some research in to military camo colours I came across this Shades of O.D and Neutral Grey. Basically a list of all the unified camo colours brought in during august 1942.
    My thoughts are QMS #31 Dark olive drab.

    Well the problem here is that color changes depending on lighting, color grading, monitor settings, inks used, etc.
    Lighting alone can drastically change a colors appearance, (ask any Indy fan)

    I have light shirts and dark ones that reverse color in low lighting, even Coyote Brown turns OD in certain lighting.
    So unless you can get the actual paint brand and number used (providing it's not a custom mix) then it will have to be based on what color you think it is.

    I'm gonna assume ONE of these helmets will show up at Disney around Rogue One's release...

    Anyone have a family trip planned?

    It's an awesome print. I printed it so the whole thing is 100mm long. Is that the right size?

    Impossible to really tell since all pictures are in the dark or it's overcast or smokey even in the drone shots.
    Most look closer to #22 on my monitor.

    I think you're closer, it looks a bit darker than what I first thought. (thanks always nice to see/read others ideas)

    Haha Neo, I hope so. Some one needs to take a bunch of pics or I will go mad getting screen caps from SW BF rogue one expansion. they are really keeping the rebels under wraps.

    Hey Elr have you printed the boxes?

    Why rotocast this piece? You'd save so much time and material making a two piece mold.. in simple terms..take the "bowl".. clay off the part to the desired thickness, and make a plug.
    You up seem to be hung up on Free Form Air as well. A simple mold like this really wouldn't need it.. stick to fiberglass. It is strong enough on its own to make a working mother mold.
    Side note, the amount of clay has nothing to do with whether or not silicone will cure. It has everything to do with what's in the clay. As long as you have a sulpher free clay (Monster Clay, or even better White Clay) you can block off the top and mold without issue.

    I'd be happy to walk you through the process or answer any questions you have.. anything to help.

    you know... I'm wondering. when casting this the dome shield is holo. i plan on making a mold that i can slush cast. so its basically making this dome shield solid at the top and when turned upside down it acts like a bowl. i dont know if using that large amount of clay will give the silicone a hard time curing...


    A great idea, in theory. However, and this may sound counter intuitive, but believe it or not an indent like that will use more resin than a simple dome shape.. surface area, and all that. That also goes for materials in molding as well.

    I wouldn't recommend using a real helmet as a plug, simply because it is metal. In theory there are no undercuts to lock them together, and you can "grease it up," but having hard metal contact hard resin scares me. You could make a proper mold and plug with three trial kits of Rebound and some fiberglass. Costs could be as low as a few hundred bucks.. definitely not $500.

    The rubber training band ended up being to big and too thick!

    I found something new that seems spot on though!

    WESCO Rubber ring for garbage bags. I'll be recieving mine this week. I'll post when I get them!

    i was looking at silicone it's 200 bucks just for the silicone, the resin isn't far behind that, then i have to buy stuff for the mother mold. i have 500 bucks easy in making this setup

    like i've said i'm trying to do this small run for all of us at cost. i do not want to make any profit off this keeping it the least expensive really helps me because i'm fronting the bill for all the materials

    if you would be willing to hold my hand through this i would be eternally grateful.

    again this would be my largest mold i ever made. i've all done small proton pack greeblies parts before


    edit: i was thinking of using a plastic bowl and cutting it up to use as a plug for the dome shield. what do u think of that
