    I know i am a new guy but i work with foam rubber and latex a lot, a latex based paint is best for flexable pieces, mix latex with acrylic paint works well.
    Great idea by the way!

    That shouldn't be a problem. You could even easily carve out an area to hide a battery using a razer knife.

    Also the question came up of painting these. I'm pretty new to working with the material but the one thing that I have learned is to use acrylic paints. Maybe Frosty or another memeber who's used this material before could give us a quick tutorial.

    I plan to install my own pieces when there done using window/bathroom silicone, Its got a strong hold and is still flexible. If that doesn't work(and I don't see why it wouldn't) I'll go with a Urathane based glue.

    I have no idea when I'll be ready to sell these maybe in 1-2 weeks. The draw back is that its not like casting plain resin pieces, the material is really expensive and the process is time consuming. I'm not trying to milk my brothers here but I would have to roughly guess the price to be around $50.00 for the set.

    Is there interest in the center piece that fits above your head? I never finished making one since it wasn't too practical I think for the normal to large Fett heads out there, there just wouldn't be room to fit your noggin.

    Thanks for all the compliments guys!

    That price seems really really fair! Considering these are fricken A awesome!
    I'll keep an eye out for the run when you do 'em. Also would love to see a turtorial posted about how to paint on this material.
    I was going to ask about that top piece, but thought too that there might not be room for it. Maybe make it half its size? So it doesn't stick out to far, but is there for some cushion for your melon. Well really look forward to seeing them painted and installed in your helm.

    Glad you're here MS!

    50 Bones? Got your money right here, how's that for interest? Since im trying to "Pimp out my new Helmet" this would make a very nice addition.

    Re: Full Size Helmet Interior

    I'd definately be interested in these as well. On a side note, maybe I'm a pessimist, but the first thing I thought when I saw this is how long will it be before some moron recasts these and sells them on ebay. I don't think it should be a problem if you sell to only board members though.

    Re: Full Size Helmet Interior

    $50 is more than fair IMHO8) Count me in...I also would like to check out the top dome peice as my Fett will only ever be a static display and while lifting the bucket off from time to time to show friends would blow them away to have the interior decked out completely would "own".

    It's all about the details

    Every time I look at the Riddell helmet I want to put it on, with this I'll be able too! Looks brilliant! Count me in for $50. Fett is an expensive hobby but the talent is just amazing here.

    Too cool! I'm interested. I'd love to see the build up pics too. I'm a sucker for do-it-yourself "behind the scenes" photos. Great work big Daddy.
