    Feb 5, 2011, 11:32 AM - FP Budget helmet in COLD CAST! #1

    As some of you saw I bought FP's Budget Boba helmet mold and wondered what I was going to do with. Well, the wait is over. I have always wanted a cold cast Boba helmet that I can troop in. Now I can make my cold cast Boba helmet.

    Some of the items that I like about helmet:
    • MQ-1 board cast info keyslots - with in cast in, to me there is more room in the helmet
    • Ears molded in - Now I don't need to worry if they are on right!


    Last night I got the first cast done. What do you think?

    Very nice work, tricky to get right that cold casting, looks like you have it spot on! A good price for a helmet kit as well...

    What I like about this in CC is for those that can't swing aluminum ears, there's almost kind of a consolation prize here.

    You need to put Asok right over the FP in the visor area, so everyone knows the lineage.

    Good general idea but if you have one in CC, wouldn't that be enough of a tell?

    Yeah id have thort there isnt much question on the liniage of these , plus to write Asok above sound simple enough but it would consit of making a new mold or scalpeling it out of the sillicon which really wouldnt be advised guess you could brand it in but most sills have a resistance of up to 185 degress sellcious

    An engraving or roto-tool really slow could do the trick. CAREFULLY, I might ad.

    If I get this one I will have 4... and I haven't built out my storage closet yet for my fetts and other SW Universe costumes and weapons and other stuff... Once I build that I should have plenty of storage space for everything...

    Or you could just write Asok inside the helmet casts with a marker pen!...
