    Yes I did a few in FG. They turned out okay and to me a lot of work. The other problem is it is just way to cold here in Indiana to make them.
    Fair enough,
    the materials you use are very solid any way so i guess youve got it coverd

    [QUOTE=Yorke;533668]If you were looking to ID them, I know Java over at the clone-empire boards puts some sort of IC ship in the earwell area of his clone helmets. When scanned there is a number that comes up on a reader. He writes that number inside with a sharpie. No one would be able to tell unless they had a scanner though.

    The IC chip idea is cool. Just way to much work.

    For just a little update, I now have the mold for the ear and aluminum power is on it's way! The aluminum range finders are still about 1 to 2 weeks out. Getting closer!

    Haven't not owned any cold cast helmets, are they heavier than normal fiberglass ones?

    @Mr Fett..no they are not heavy at all. They are really the same you just add the CC to the resin on the outer layers.

    overall it adds a negligible amount of weight. this helmet is a bit heavier due to the fact that it has more layers of resin involved, it's pretty thick to add strength.

    I have never worked with any Cold Cast items before, but how would one paint it? Could I layer it like I do my fiberglass buckets?

    take a look at saint_nasty's Rav Bralor thread. He has a painted CC helmet. And yes you can layer it up just fine

    yeah, you can paint on cold cast just like any other resin helmet. but instead of priming the entire thing, once you have the cc polished, you mask off the silver parts before you prime. after that you paint as normal.

    I'm jonesin over here. I hope you know that you probably cost me more money because I am ordering a Clonetrooper helmet trying to get my fix. Of course as soon as you give the go ahead I will be ordering one of these too.

    if I wore a watch I would be looking at it.

    The stalks look good.

    The answer is yes and I am working on them. My IT job is keeping my jumping. But, do now worry. That is why I put the ticket system in place. Unlike work, I can kick tickets to the interns to help out.

    That is correct. Years and years ago you had to be one of the cool kids to get some of the stuff. I really dislike that and will do my best to treat everybody as fair as I can.
