    Is this ebay listing a legit build?

    Looks like there are a lot of air bubbles in the cast to me. I think you would be better off getting in touch with ASOK and getting one of his Boba lids.

    Yeah, I would have to agree. I do a lot of resin casting myself and you can see the bubbles in that casting, not to mention the small parts. It would take a lot of cleanup and sanding to get it paint worthy. I would go with ASOK, as his CC bucket is really nice and around the same price.

    It's a MSH1 recast. You can tell by the size and shape of the dent, as well as the ear pieces. They look like rather soft casts too. I believe someone on here bought one several months ago and began a thread about fixing it up. The back was in pretty rough shape. Like Deadland said, you would be happier with an ASOK lid...accurate sculpt, size, and sharp casting.

    That looks like an MSH recast.

    I'd spend a few more bucks and get in touch with Fettpride. He's still got the FPH premium molds which is a hell of a helmet with plenty of room to breathe!

    It absolutely is a msh recast and just an fyi hollywoodpropmasters is one of the biggest recasters on ebay, all his stuff is junk. He sells under multiple user names too like cylon-trader and I forget his other aliases of the top of my head.
