    One more step to something beautiful.

    Are you molding the middle greeblie into the snout or is that going to be seperate?
    I am going to mold it all as one piece. I figure the less pieces you have to deal with the better.

    I worked on the scope today and almost have the body of it finished...

    I got the mother mold of the snap cast finished today. First was the plaster mother mold:





    Next I closed off the open side with plaster bandages and then brushed in some silicone to complete the jacket:





    When this sets up, I'll fill it up with Hydrocal and that will become my vac-form buck for the top of the helmet.

    That is a great sculpt, and yes you're going at lightspeed with this. I always liked Boushh, but it's definitely starting to grow on me.

    I posted a few shots of Boushh on resinilluminati.com http://www.resinilluminati.com/showthread.php?t=1664 . They were taken at the Brussel SW exhibit a few weeks ago. I'm sure you've seen this all, but maybe it adds a bit of info.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the additional pics brother!!! I noticed in one of your pics there appeared to be a brass button underneath the scope on the helmet. I have never seen that detail before...something else to add.

    Wasili,

    I could really use some pictures of the underside and rear of both ear details. I have great close-ups of the ears from the front and side but nothing from below or behind. I could also use a close up of the underside of the scope so I can get a better look at the model details.

    After seeing that pic you posted I bet there are other model details that I am missing...

    THANKS FOR THE OFFER!!!!

    I second those requests plus I have a few more if it's cool. Any top or bottom angles of the entire helmet that you can get. I've seen a lot of fronts and sides shots and not enough good top or bottom views. Thanks.

    Will do my best on the pics, but do realize that most shots will be taken from the front of the display as its a bit build in. Can't really view the side, unless i stick my camera in between the glass and the wall. A bit crappy, knowing in London it was accessible from all sides.

    Anything else beside the helmet ?

    Cheers,

    Cool, thanks. i know what you're talking about. A couple of the exhibits i visited here in the states, Boushh was displayed in the dimmest part of the exhibit. It was like the nocturnal house at the zoo, so a lot of dark or blurry pictures resulted.

    If you could also get the bottom part of the cape where it attaches on the left side, that would be cool. Although I realize it will probably be fairly difficult with the position of the left arm and the whole side issue you described earlier.

    I appreciate your offer and will be glad to see any photos you can manage.

    I donīt know if these are any help, but hey itīs better than leaving them on my harddrive gathering dust











    Iīm pretty sure that I went around Boushh with my DV cam, I still have to look for the tape though. It wouldnīt be the first tape with important info on it that gets lost :-\

    Thanks for the additional pics Mike!!! You can never have too many reference pics!

    Well, I got the vac-formed piece all cut out and attached today.







    I throw some primer on it tomorrow...

    No problem, Todd.

    I´d say that the cut out lengthy holes on top should be on level and aligning with the L-shaped groove in the back.

    Comparison:


    Otherwise I can only repeat what the others wrote, awesome work !
