    I think Fett 4 Real had done one in ROTJ. I think others have posted the same question in the Cargo Hold.

    Well, he does if you don't mind it looks like a five year old painted it. Sorry to the five years olds that I have offended.

    does this come with the ear cap? Or is there an aluminum right ear cap that would fit this helmet?

    The ears are cast into this helmet. The upper right ear where the RF goes is the only thing seperate. All of the parts are included with the kit though.

    Re: FP Budget helmet in COLD CAST!

    I got mine in the mail Tuesday. It is fantastic. I usually build clones, so this is my first Fett. I love the cold cast. I hadn't ever seen or heard about this type casting process. I am looking forward to painting it.

    Question: Is there an extra bit that needs to be cut off of the upper ear cap? I don't see it on anyone's builds. Do I cut it off? I am painting it up ROTJ style. Thanks

    There will be part of the bottom of the ear cap is will need to be removed. I would look at the Ref Gallery and compare it to the screen helmets and you will see what needs to be removed.

    I included pics above to see if I am removing the right bit, but you have to click them to view? Loading up pics is different here. I will have to learn how it works. Thanks.

    Your attachments don't work at all. I think you waited too much before you clicked the 'Save' button... The Manage Attachment says: 'Uploads not utilized within one hour will be deleted'. This might be your problem.

    I have some good news. I have been training a Padawan. What does that mean? Well, my friend who has not worked in over a month will be able to help me keep with demand. She is used to filling teeth with resin so, helmets are not a stretch for her.

    Asok I just got my cold cast helmet today! Thanks for the super fast shipping and the helmet looks wonderful. I was surprised to have it here today sinced it shipped on Monday! I can hardly wait to start polishing, putting it all together and painting it. Again I love the cold cast idea. I think the cold cast design will give a more realistic metallic look versus painting. Again i must say you did a great job on this cast and a great looking helmet! Thanks again!

    So... Are you still selling these? Currently trying to build my own, but I wouldn't mind having one of these. Looks a little more reliable than the one I'm working on. Cursed cardboard.

    Get one (or two) they are awesome and you will enjoy them much more than cardboard.

    Just send Asok a PM he will get back to you.

    Re: FP Budget helmet in COLD CAST!

    I have no doubts that I will. However, I'll finish my cardboard one too. Just for the satisfaction of knowing that I have made something myself

    Sent him a PM now.

    Re: FP Budget helmet in COLD CAST!

    I received mine Monday. This is an incredible helmet and Asok sets the bar for customer service. I had a lot of questions and the way he organizes all his correspondence is very impressive. From the first email to opening my box- the whole process was enjoyable- with 0 issues.
    Guess I’ll be replacing my picture soon and tossing the Hasbro! Thanks for helping me take my kit to the next level Bro!
