Helmet sculpt

  1. #1

    Helmet sculpt

    Ive been away in the country for the past 4 months, away from internet axces , so to pass the spare time I had I figured Id have another crack at making my previous helmet sculpt even more accurate than before, Ive basicly remade the whole helmet , every single inch main emphasis on the visor trim shape , as the original has quite an uneven shape,,
    I spent litterally days going through pics Id saved to a USB key, pics of the original helmets an the few first gen casts out there, spacificlly the Malone Fett buck, the original GMH , as it was very well photographed by Art, and moost importantly the Banazi helmet,dscf3548-jpgdscf3550-jpgdscf3556-jpg
    As you can see Iveused alot of epoxy filler to reshape the face area , dscf3569-jpg
    An
    y way a few more tweeks anits going in the sillicon tomorrow
    I was throughing up weather to make the helmet with out the dent, and sculpt a dent then make casts of it and add the dent to the helmet , like the original has them added after the fact, this to add to the accuracy , and also so I can keep working on thedent an very them slightly depending on which helmet style Im doing

    Re: My new Fett helmet sculpt

    There does seem to be a slight angular change between the upper and lower platforms... ? (excuse the crude overlay)
    Same angular change can be found on the MR and the GMH I have.

    Kaane, Ive struglled with this part quite a bit,

    It may need a bit of a change,though the platforms are actually slightly diffrent angles but once the ears go on it looks right, ( I think)

    Not about intrest at all, Im making the molds as we speak, , so I can definantly do one,
    Price,, well I dont know I guess gel coated FG with resin ears would be around the 200 mark but i could consider doing a resin one for cheaper

    Jimbo, you know as always, i'm keen as. I'm happy for either material bud, so basically, whatever would be the easiest for you and will create the most accurate pull. Feel free to pm me anytime as normal for details brother, you know how big a fan of your work I am
