    I have seen this helmet in person. The pics do not do it justice. It is a work of Art. I await to see it finished, it is going to be awesome.

    Yes. This is awesome. You have my high respect for this.

    I love it. I love it a lot.

    In fact, I will be using this for creating Zannah's armor.

    Thanks for the awesome guidelines. Your work looks most excellent. You really just used for sale signs, hmm? That's cool. The same Sintra boiling techniques worked on these signs, yes? That's very impressive. Thanks for the find!

    I'm about to finally get around to building my own armour and lid after too much time spent wanting to, but not having enough time. I can only hope that my attempt looks a quarter of how good yours does. Truly amazing work! I feel inspired!

    First, thanks for all the kind words. I have $140 invested in the helmet. This includes all the finishing materials, visor, and MQ1 casting for the rear. To do it again I could probably save another 10 to 15% off of that total. The real investment is in time. I hope to get back on the paintjob again shortly.

    Its been tough to find time to finish between work and school. I hope to get back on it over the holiday break. I also started a Vader mod (Rubies), and a Stormtrooper (RT Mod) and I plan on splitting time between all three. With Dookie's new templates it just made finishing it a lot easier. I will keep you posted. Thanks.

    Just for the sake of argument, and even without any evidence to support it....


    It is almost......too good.


    I know you might be a little irritated hearing this all the time, but this is really grade A work. Be proud. Not all scratch builds come out as cleanly as yours has so far. I'm proud for you, thats how good it is.

    Been awhile since I posted any progress but SJ and now Spideyfett's paint ups have got me inspired to finish my bucket. Have gone to mostly topical except in the larger areas where I will use Dookie's templates and cut masks. SJ, I still don't see how you complete a helmet so quickly and with such outstanding results. I mounted the green visor with the Spideyfett mounting method and will use the same for the circuit board mount. The dry transfers are definitely the way to go for the ears SJ. Awesome find. I will post more pics when I finish the back and weathering.

    Makes my scratchbuilt look like a piece 'o ****. :-P Great job, man!

    Lol, now I want to re-do it, as mine was a first try. Don't think my wife would like that too much, with the amount of time I put into the first one... hehe. It's mostly the dome on mine that I'm not happy with. Too tall, and the shape is wrong. Too rounded.

    Awesome work, tho, you've set the bar for scratchbuilts.
