First let me say, this is a gorgeous helmet. the outside looks almost straight off the film itself. This is The GMH Resin cast by Fett Pride. the only things i did to it so for is cleaned up some of the leftover apron on the bottom and drill small holes where some of the holes go (to attach the ears). I would have just taped them on for now, but tape wasn't sticking to it.. not even duct tape. i don't know, maybe i did something wrong.. i tried wiping it down with some Acetone and then just some water.. nothing seemed to help. anyways.
all outward appearances look wonderful. there were a few weak resin spots where the visor needs to be cut in a few spots. but who cares about that.. its coming out anyways!
The inside is very glossy. very smooth, but there is one spot where there seems to be a bump of too much resin i shined a flashlight in and you can kind of see it also see the light inside the bucket picts showing the thickness the dark areas are thicker.. when put on, it's a bit uncomfortable because of it and will probably need to be sanded down.
Inside light to see resin thickness
Below is the image i was talking about above the dark area on the left is the bump.
all in all i think this helmet is absolutely brilliant.. the resin seems very durable and for the most part even and not weak.. and would be great for trooping! most of my experiences with resin seem a but brittle or sometimes too bendy and weak.. this is perfect.. expertly made!
I personally would have preferred a fiberglass one just because of the accurate build i am doing.
Chris if you are reading this brother, it was a long wait (for me) but totally worth it.. I think i might owe you a beer (or other beverage of your choosing) just for taking on this project.. Cheers!
