    Has a helmet cast in aluminum or such ever been attempted before?

    Search up Hand-Schaub & you will see that he cast up some aluminum helmets. I had a Jango one in my posession for awhile & the thing was thick! His costume consists of all cast aluminum pieces & is still one of the best Jangos out there.

    Ditto....HS's were the absolute BEST metal helmets ever produced! Too bad I didn't snag one when I had the chance.

    Thianks for the nods.
    Yes, My whole suit is cast aluminum. Here are a few links to answer most questions...

    and one of the suit progress:

    I do plan on casting a few more. Now there may be eough interest to get a full pour done which is usually the reason I did not produce too many of these. I'm looking at a several month timeline though (2+)
    prices of metal are way up though. Possible price range is $600 (give or take $50)

    thanks,
    Brian
