    Jul 15, 2011, 12:24 PM - Helmet finishing comission? #1

    I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong area. I will close it down and re-post elsewhere if so.

    So I just bought one of the new cold cast Boba Fett Helmets, and even in it's raw form it is quite beautiful. I've built two TK suits and a scout suit, all made of ABS so I've never worked with this material before; and certainly never built a helmet that requires this degree of painting skill. I was proud that I was able to contain the black frown on my ESB TK helmet neatly to the teeth area, lol.

    Needless to say, I'm blown away by the work I've seen on your helmets here on TDH. I'm thinking that for my first Fett bucket it might be worth ponying up the dough to have someone who knows what they're doing finish this thing for me before trying one myself sometime in the future.

    So with that said... would anyone be willing to discuss a comission for finishing this helmet? I haven't touched it at all except to see that it would fit on my melon head, lol. So I'm looking for someone to trim, install visor and paint it.


    I guess post here if you'd be interested and we can discuss further in PM or e-mail.


    Thanks for reading; sorry for the long post.

    Hi folks,

    Thank you everyone who PM'd me interested in working on my new helmet. All of your work was really impressive and it was not easy to decide who to go with. After seeing the work Deadland just finished on essentially the same bucket, I decided to have him paint it up for me. Given the addictive nature of this hobby, I have to imagine Boba Fett lids aren't much different from stormtrooper lids... no way I'll stop at one, lol.

    Thanks again guys,

    Tom
