    I'm tackling the snout piece next. I have the model pieces cast and glued together and I'm working on fabricating the snout from MDF. I was waiting to get a helmet cast so I could size it perfectly to the opening. I'll post some more pics this week...

    I always thought the snout pieces looked like a tusken raider tooth except two of them and turned sideways. Are these the essentially the same or maybe a little bigger?

    Ditto.

    I may be very well interested in getting one of those. This first helmet is resin right? If you were to do a run of these, would it also be resin or more likely fiberglass? Not even sure if that's possible from this kind of mold?

    Terrific job Todd .. I'm keeping an eye on your thread with greaet interest!!!

    Yes, this first pull is a resin. When I get the master finished, I will be making the helmets out of a similar polyurethane resin that is specifically formulated for roto-casting. It is very strong yet has some give to it which means that it is not brittle. The finished product will be light and very durable.

    I'm trying to stay away from fiberglass due to the weight.

    First coat of primer, and I placed the cast of the Ferrari body on top so you could see size ratios. I think everything is looking pretty good. I also eased the corners a bit to soften the look. I have a little bondo work to do and then its on to the detail piece for the top.

    I worked on the snout piece for most of the day. Here is the MDF mock up.



    And here is the snout piece shaped and sprayed with primer.

    WOW, oh WOW! Very nice looking helmet. I've always wanted to do one of those, and with it being a one piece, I just might have to join the bandwagon and get one when you offer them up.

    Snout piece master is finished and ready for silicone!



    Now I'm taking a snap cast of the top of the helmet master. I will use it to make a vac-form buck for the detail piece that goes on top of the helmet.
