    Wow... MS... to say I am impressed with this bucket is a MAJOR understatement. I can't wait to see the finished product. I can only imagine that after this is complete, and given a proper paint job, it's going to look phenominal!

    Thank you for the images...

    What the heck did I miss?! I guess thanks to all those guys who stood up for me!
    I've avoided posting any of the close up shots of the detail changes for obvious reasons. Next week I'll post pics of a completed kit with the new RF, and polished ears. I'm pretty sick today so I'm not going to get the work done I wanted before the weekend. I'm off to Vancouver in the morning to watch some Hockey GO CANUCKS GO!

    I'm only a day or two away from molding the RF pieces up. The main body is completed and I machined the 3 grooves into the insert yesterday. Only thing left to do is make up the lens cover and the small lens to go inside.

    Thanks for the update bro

    Anxiously awaiting mine. Thank god I have my new (version 1) MLC jet pack to keep me busy til then. I'm actually having a blast reseaching everything, and getting myself set up for the painting process of all the pieces of the costume, it's 1/2 the fun of building it.

    Have fun at the game man =)

    i feel like i'm a future puppy owner, looking at pics from the breeder. which one's mine?

    and on a less joking note... do you have any advice on a nice rotj visor? the guy that sells the rubies upgrade ones on ebay will cut me a larger one, but i'm not convinced that $20+ for a visor makes sense...

    Yours is the 1 in the middle I used a smoked acrylic visor for my ROTJ. I bought it from the guy on ebay. Make sure he makes it longer left to right. This helmet's eye slit has been lenghtend 1/2" to match up to the MoM photos. Ask him to make is 11"wide and 7" long and you'll be plenty safe.

    If you have a local weilding supply company close to you try there. Look for a dark green faceshield. You can get them online also.

    Here's an example of what im talkin about :

    I'm not guaranteeing anything Just make sure if he makes you one that the eye slit is at least 11" across and the lenth down the mandibles is at least 7" and you will have enought visor to easy cover the inside. Might have to trim a bit off the bottom. As for in side fit, maybe you will have to heat it up bend it to get a tight fit.

    that's the problem... they only have green. since i'm doing RotJ, i want smokey.

    i've emailed the ebay visor guy with the measurements. it's looking like $15 plus shipping will be the way to go.

    Hello everybody!

    Well I went on a little trip over to visit our friend Marrow Sun and I came home last night with some goodies! I got the opportunity to cast my own helmet, so I did!

    MS was kind enough to lend his incredible painting skills to do an amazing paint job on my helmet. He went for a PP2 scheme and I think you will agree that he got it spot on! I'll let the photos do the rest of the talking...










    Oh,...... what a minute,......that can't be right,......Oh! Opps! That's my old broken POS rubber Don Post helmet with the 2 hour paint job from when I was 12 years old! I keep on getting these helmets mixed up!



    But seriously folks (I'll be here all week! ), I did cast up my own helmet (#10 out of the mold!) and I now have a complete kit ready to start work on. This helmet is amazing and you all will love yours. It just has the correct look that lets you know this definitely has close ties to the original helmets.





    I've got the cold-cast aluminum ear pieces (which still need trimming and a lot of sanding/polishing to bring out that metallic shine), a cute little cold-cast aluminum Borden connector, the multi-piece range finder (which looks pretty sharp!), and one of BigKidBiggerToys' slick new aluminum RF posts (thanks again BKBT!). I'll be going to town getting everything prep'ed and then I'll need to track down some paints!




    For those naysayers who think that all MS is good at is pouring silicone, I have something to say to you. He can't even do that right! His first mold for the range finder parts left silly little part lines on the pieces, so I had to sort him out and show him what he should do! We re-made those molds, so all you guys will be getting nice pieces with your helmets (unlike me who is stuck with these crappy pieces from the old mold! ). He's getting all your parts together and will be starting shipping this week, so it won't be long now for you guys! I can safely say you won't be disappointed!

    All and all, I couldn't be happier with this kit! I'll be going for a film-accurate ESB paint job, and I'll be going 100% layered on the paints for that really authentic feel. I too hope to start a progress thread for this guy, if you all aren't sick of those by now!

    All the best,

    MJC.
