Hey all. Some of you who are on the Mando Mercs (everybody sing! mando, mando mercs... I want to be a mando merc.... sorry, that goes through my head every time I say or think "mando merc") will have seen my post about my WIP generic mando helmet specifically designed for modding.
I took a casting like this one from my Boba mold -
and got to work filling, sanding, reshaping wobbles, etc. The below pics represent where I was a few days ago. I need to get more pics.
(excuse me if I make mistakes while typing, my daughter, who is 4, is humming Darth Vader's theme here beside me and making me laugh LOL)
Anyway, the casting was kinda wobbly so I had to do some work on it (not as bad as it looks in the pic actually), and I wanted to make a few slight adjustments to over all shape.
I have little more work to do on the surface and I will put it aside for molding. The idea is that this will be a generic mando lid with the visor and keyhole vent both easily changeable. The classic "T" will only be scored onto the surface of the mandibles, but the line can be filled quickly if a different visor shape is wanted. I haven't yet decided if I want to do the same with the keyhole vent in the back.
I will keep the molds for the three earpieces I have, but the idea is that the ear surfaces on the generic lid will lend themselves to having a variety of custom doo-dads put on there. If I do get rid of the keyholes on the modded noggin, I will also make a mold for that part, which can easily be installed by cutting out the "hatch" molded into the back of the helmet.
