    I have to say you are one of the most creative prop makers i have ever seen online.You are a credit to the Prop community and an even bigger credit to your family.I have 3 sons,but unfortunately neither is a big enough Star Wars fan to warrant me making them a costume-although im still working on my lad Sonny who is only 17 months

    Top marks for being a great dad aswell as a great prop maker.

    Wow, this is amazing, what kind of foam sheets were you using? I dont know that i've seen those at the craft store before, they seem to take the paint pretty well though.

    Thank you!

    This build has been fun & I'm so very glad I started it when I did! I still have people asking me why did you start so soon? Halloween is so far away... I just sum up the story and say... "I'm not sane"


    Foam = Go to camping section find the foam mat you sleep on.. "usually in a Blue roll" Good luck! =)

    I will let him wear it when/where ever he wants.. After all this work and how fast he grows he had better destroy it by wearing it out! LOL!


    First bucket pull & it's a really good thick cast!







    Just have three more ear pieces to make and mold them then clean & paint everything up and it's done!

    Ok I'm done! I'm so stoked that I'm done!

    Any way worked like crazy and here it is!
    Molded up that last sculpt...

    More molding..

    Range finder..

    Right side ear piece's...

    Left...

    Ear/range finder cap...

    Range finder antenna... "big & small"

    Here they are all cleaned up!

    I'm waiting for some Magnet's in the mail then I will assemble this bad boy! Until then I will be painting it.
    This is what it looks like on the Kid But since this picture I have trimmed it and will be putting foam inside so it will fit better... Needless to say he loved it!

    Man, if you could make a career out of it, you could make it in like a day!!!!!

    Also, did you use a base for the sculpt, or is the helmet sculpt, like 1 giant ball of Mando clay???
