    Re: Child Sized Fett Helmet - PICS !

    Sorry, but the update will have to wait - real life situations come first. Let me just say that I only have one more detail to finish before this thing is sealed. When that's done, I'll post the pics.

    Re: Child Sized Fett Helmet - PICS !

    Alas, the long overdue update! The helmet and earpiece models are almost done. I just need to do a little tweeking here and there. The earpieces are seperate, just taped on for referance. This is about 3/4 scale of the one on the right.


    I still need to make the rangefinder. The main helmet mold will bolt together in three sections: front, back, and dome. Once the mold is finished, before I remove it from the model, I will remove the dome section of the mold and put the dent into the model. Then, I will run a mold of the dented dome. The mold will now have two seperate, interchangable dome sections. By switching from one to the other, I can run dented or undented helmets from the same mold.

    Thank you for cluing me in and for sharing. Your technique is truly masterful. I am stunned by the cleanness of the sculpt and product.

    Great job JD!!!
    I haven't had much time to post but I think this is an awesome idea.

    By the way, I can never thank you enough for teaching me how to work with fiberglass and being patient with me through the process, but here's another one. . .THANK YOU

    Thanks guys, I always try to help out when I can. That's what TDH is for, right?

    And BTW, I expect this little helmet to be ready the weekend after next, for those interested.

    I am so happy to be directed to this thread, I am working on a Jango Fett costume for my son for CIII, and all I need now is the helmet.

    Please let me know when I can get one!!!!!!

    I have GOT to have one of those helmets for a little buddy of mine! He was totally enthralled with my trooper. I can't imagine how ecstatic he'd be to have a Fett helmet that actually FIT him!

    Hear, hear.

    The only thing my little guy woud like more is maybe a full Power Ranger bucket. I have a some sintra just lying around and a few woefully small armor pieces that would make a great base for a kids suit.

    Any more progress pics?

    I didn't get to mold it last weekend, because I hosted a workshop on fiberglass molding and casting basics. I didn't even try to tackle any of my own work, in order to be available for assistance. Hopefully next weekend will bring closure to the development stage of this project.

    Thanks Rock. It was good to see you're still around after all this time. I should get the "undented guy" mold finished today. Then, I can put a dent in the dome, for the "dented guy" version.

    Hey j d,

    It's coming along sweet. I wish my dad made me highly detailed SW outfits when I was a kid.

    He is a lucky one.


    Keep up the mad-prop-skillz and I look forward to seeing the finished product.

    G_B, for the record, I'm not a dad...yet. I did this because someone here on TDH asked about one, and I was silly enough to take on the task.

    My bad bro.

    For some reason I thought you were doing this for your son.


    Now I know.




    Keep up the great work regardless.

    I finished the un-dented helmet mold today. I'm letting it cure overnight, and pulling the dome section off in the morning. Then I'll add the dent, and pull that dome section. Watch for an update Sunday afternoon.
