    Is that $550 shipped? sorry of i missed it.
    I may be interested in Jango if i can secure funds for it.
    Whats a good guesstimate time of finishing each helmet.
    In all fairness would be first paid first fabricated and delivered correct?
    thanks!

    Sorry I was not totally clear on that. Right now It is $550 plus shipping BUT...since I am getting a few more requests for these than previously thought I may be able to get a slightly better per unit cost from the foundry. I will pass those savings on to you.

    Timeline is somewhat unclear even for me. Currently I cast about 4 helmets in wax... I need to clean them up then off to the founry I go. The foundry is usually slower than chewed gum as far as turnaround so there will be some dead time there. But to answer your question in short about 2 months and yes - typicaly the first payed will be first dealt with. There are times when somebody is not in a huge rush and I will push it back. All I require is the deposit when the wax is ready - this secures the helmet for you. When I get metal back then I will just go down the list.

    Progress report!!

    Well the casting is going well! I am working down the list and have finished up 4 waxes and will finish the 5th this evening. So far I have a wax ready for:

    1. [Aeria-Gloris] (Jango)
    2. TK7602 (Boba)*
    3. Galactic Bounty Hunter (Jango)
    4. Laan (Jango)
    5. Private (Jango)*

    I will continue the waxes for the second half of the list after I return from Comic-Con
    I skipped over Lotek becasue he still has not told me jango or Boba. I will add a picture tomorrow because I need to go out a get a camera (mine took a serious dump on me)

    I will be going to the foundry tomorrow to start the investment process. This is the part where I will be asking those mentioned to submit thier payment. I need to put down payments on these at the foundry and as stated earlier I can not front the money. PMs are on thier way

    Thanks!

    I'm quite happy for you to leave mine until everyone elses is done, because of mine being a custom sculpt, take as long as you need, just let me know when you need the deposit.
    Cheers!

    Jul 22, 2007, 12:22 AM - Update July 21 - First five are moving! #32

    As promised here are the pictures of the first five helmets in wax...
    The first shows them in the car ready to be driven of to the foundry.
    The second and third shows them gated up. Up to this point I did all the work on these. There is a good deal of handling these go through which is why I consider each individual and of an art calliber.

    Brian,

    What are the odds that these could be in our hands by August 30th (i.e., DragonCon)? It's less than 2 months away, but you said "about 2 months" so I just wanted to check.

    Thanks,

    I moved this to the helmet section. All items posted in the Cargo Hold are deleted 14 days after they are posted. If you plan to produce a limited run of an item and also plan to post an interest thread and/or sign-up list, do not post them in The Cargo Hold. Instead, post the interest thread/sign up list thread in the forum that is most closely related to the item that is for sale (example: post your interest thread for a run of jet pack rockets in the Jet Pack forum). The Cargo Hold is intended for items that are available for immediate sale or trade, not future projects in which the item has yet to be created or completed.

    Thanks - funny part is that this was 'moved' to the cargo hold from Helmet.

    Update*** I'm back in town from Comic-Con and a family thing so the next waxes are being worked on this week.
    Thank you to all who sent deposits - You should have or will recieve a confirmation e-mail.

    I've had one of these helmets (Boba) since '04 and even though not yet painted, it's a real work of art.

    This is a general call out to anybody on the list which I have not formally contacted yet. Due to several circumstances, I am requesting any deposits to be made at any time. The reason for this is that I do not want to cast wax or send ANYTHING to the foundry before having a deposit. It is just too much money to front. I hope to have full deposits by next Wednesday when I plan to close the list. Thanks to all who are interested and have said kind words. Thanks those who have made thier deposits already!!


    Thanks,
    Brian

    When do you think you would do a troop again in the SoCal Garrison? I'd love to see one of these buckets in person But with all of the times I troop with the SCG, I never run into you!

    I'm actually with the Central California Garrison. I haven't trooped recently with So. Cal folk. I admit - most of my previous helmets have not made it to the costume floor - rather on mantles above the fire place.

    I took a guess and just went for the largest from t-visor.com

    about $15 but you can more than double that if you count shipping to the UK

    You may also consider flexible welding face shields which can be cut to size. They come in different darkness which can be good if you have a helmet for costuming or for display.
