    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: that is awesome! You should let us know if you plan to make some of your casts available to the public *wink wink*

    Re: My Helmet

    Thanx Elusive ,
    Definently my plan, and at a low price,. but with the other well know makers out there i dont know if any one would be interested.
    starting the molding prosses today ill be doing the ears in an aluminium cold cast the range finder in clear casting resin also i found some one selling the old pollaroid in perfect condition so im going to try to get him to lower the price so i can aford it seeing that i only wont it for the veiwing window its a hard desision to make but it would be good to have the real found. part as a master to make copys from.

    Re: My Helmet

    just a progress pic on the moldingdsc03920-jpgdsc03921-jpgin these pics iam utilising a poor mould 2 part molding method .
    Previously I had made molds of most of the parts , i ussed a method ive useed previously a drip molding method dripping sillicon solution in to a vestal with the item that is being molded sitting on the base of said vestil witha clean clay attached to the bak o f the item but the out come was less than desireable and the peices proudused from these molds wold need quite a bit of cleaning up to acheave disierd results.
    So i am hopping that this method will yeld a much more favorable result

    Looks good. If you do end up selling these I'd definately be interested in a non CC version for $70. I wonder what shipping would be to the States though?
