    Aug 2, 2010, 1:00 PM - A little tribute to Fett, Stormtroopers and Tuskegee Airmen #1

    I was one of the fortunate artist to do one of these EFX helmets.

    The 501st TK Helmet Project.

    What is the TK Project?

    The TK Project is a charity event for the Make A Wish Foundation. The 501st Stormtooper Legion is inviting our Honorary Members, Friends Of the Legion and a few 501st troopers to create one of a kind Stormtrooper helmets. This project is similar to the Vader Project that Sarah Jo Marks and Dov Kelemer completed.

    These helmets will be auctioned off on Sunday at C5
    Date: Sunday August 15th
    Time: 2:00 to 5:00 PM
    Where: Behind the Scenes Stage

    WWII Tuskegee Airmen Tribute.

    Great work Seeker! This looks like a "steampunk" trooper.

    Great tribute to Star Wars and the Tuskeegee Airmen!

    That looks great Turo! One of the best I have seen so far.

    I was also working on one of the The 501st TK Helmet Project... but had to bail out due to other commitments.
