    Re: Hasbro b.ft helmet mod(UPDATES)

    Ive got the kill stripes down dsc03808-jpgdsc03806-jpgim realy undesided on wether to take a belt sander to this whole thing strip her back to bare and start painting again........ Idont know ....Its a hard helmet to replicate due to the fact that the in refrence pics it looks like it had been used as a door stop at skywalker ranch for the last 25 year and the few pics of it new the weathering on it seams to be difrent each shoot. Mabey im just making excuses for the fact that im doing a bad job.

    Your first painting job is a learning experience. So don't sweat it. The guys here who get commisioned for helmets have done multiple paint jobs to get where they are... and remember that you're doing a helmet based only off photo stills. It's not like the ESB paint job that has templates available here. You're doing a good job!

    Re: Hasbro b.ft helmet mod (ALMOST DONE)

    dsc03833-jpgdsc03828-jpgdsc03834-jpgI was pretty happy with the overall shape of this lid so i desided to make a mould off it and pull afew casts so far ive pulled 3 out and im very pleased with the way the casts look i still need to make the right ear configuration and the clear insert in the range finder then cast those.

    The back panels u painted on are ROTJ not ESB which you have going on the rest of the helmet...not sure if you knew that or not....

    Re: Hasbro b.ft helmet mod (ALMOST DONE)

    Wow, I was just looking at those in TRU with my son a few days ago and wondering how accurate they were.
    That is a really great job you are doing with it! It is certainly a difficult paint job.
    I am waiting to be able to post in the Cargo Hold to get one of the awesome helmets being offered now.
    Maybe I will pick up one of these toys to practice painting...
    Keep up he good work and the posts of your progress!

    Re: Hasbro b.ft helmet mod (getting the dome right)

    dsc03853-jpgdsc03856-jpgdsc03863-jpgOk so what ive done here is with the casts i made keept one of them as it came out just cleaned it up, an of the other 2 i cut themm up and am in the middle of making one as close to the real thing as pos , basicliy changed all the mesurements using photos and my jango asok and my old mystery as refrences(only), After getting all the sizes right i thort i was pretty happy with it exept for the dome shape from birds eye veiw so ive cut the dome off again and used a mix of expoxy filler and fiber glass resin mixed em together so they can be painted on then applied and worked it to the shape it should be, its a lot of work but iv put this much time in it so far i may as well get it right im all so making the ears up , at the right size and a 2 sets of the larger wof size for the hasbro mod and its resin copy i might as well finish them astempting as it is to cut them both up aswell and get the ears the right size but ill limit my self,

    Thanx Elusive
    I have placed the helmet ive made next to my mystery helmet(Iadded the ear platforms on my self) for comparison onlydsc03873-jpgdsc03871-jpgI have painstakinly cut it up trimed it down heated it up and cooled it downmany times now and i think ihave almost gotten it rightdsc03875-jpg,Getting the profile and the and the egg shape on the dome tok alot of work , i hope you guys like it ,I know each step in this evolution of this build i think i have it right but this thime i think i rely have it coverd, in the middle of scratching up some ears at the mo.
    Just to reitterate all of this helmet is made by me nothing has been used from any one elses build oriinaly the dome was from a hasbro fett 2 genarations agoand i have extensivly remade that , the mystery is for comparison only ..
    Thanx for reading
