    May 16, 2008, 2:47 PM - 300 Spartan Helmet Mold done, 1st cast pulled #1

    Well I wasnt going to post anything till this baby is ready for production but Im just to excited as this has been a WIP with a BIG helpful had from an owner of an orgianl SE helmet(speak up if you wish), for the better part of 4 months

    My goal with this helmet was to make it as close to the SE helmet but make it wearable for the average joe. When I was able to hold the screen used helmet in my hand I was shocked at how small it was, and I by no means have a large head and it wouldnt even fit on my mellon! With that said, measurments of the orignal SE helmet were taken and adjusted so that this helmet is fully wearable and as close to the SE as can by my the human hand/my abilities.

    Without further adu here is where im at, just started the weathering today and should finish with in the next day or two and get her ready for molding.



    Question/Comments needed and welcomed!

    Thanks

    -Tim

    I've seen a few of these helmet sculpts over the last few months but this is by far the nicest example I've seen. Proportions look just right, very nice.

    Very good indeed. Are you going to make the variation that Leonidas wears? With the mohawk thing?

    Fett armor got put on hold as well as the Gladiator helmet after I had some major knee surgery (again). So basically for the 4+ months I was out i researched and sculpted the 300 helmet. The gladiator helmet is done, just not molded and part of the fett armor are done (bells) again not molded and completed.......Basically my problem is i start things and never finish them lol, with the exception of this one

    Tim, it's really coming along nicely and looks even better than it did when we saw it in person a couple weeks ago! Well done.

    YES!! it went through some MAJOR re-constructive surgery after I got to hold the SE helmet. Amazing how camera angles can play tricks on your eyes, especially after you've been staring at them for hours on end lol....

    Well got a chance to pull one from the mold today. I didnt have any of the right resin with me and I was itchy to pull one and do a test fit so I bought some cheap auto-boat resin and fiberglass at the store today and made a quick one. Its pulled alright but the back lip had bubbles in it and my fiberglassing technique needs some work to say the least lol.



    Initially the helmet didnt fit me because I made the resin waaayyy to thick. So with some sanding with the dremel in the brow and jaw bone, it fits snug now and isnt to loose. I have some more room to sand it down further if need be and im sure when these are ready for production you all will need to do some sanding in areas to get them on your noggins but it fits.
