    SHOWOFF my ESB Fett helmet w/INTERIOR!!!

    I just finished this after about 4 weeks of planning,cutting,fitting,gluing,painting,etc. I used alot of different mediums including "marine" vinyl,artificial snow,various PC parts,phone veiw screen,plumbing parts,motors,paint,etc. to achieve my final design which I am very proud of. None would have come to fruition so quickly without Marrow Sun's fantastic interior which gave me a canvas to build upon...my hats off to you sir

    I took these pics without flash since they best represent what you see since the interior is so dark. Flash doesn't work out too well.

    As many know it is an original MSH-1 which I painstakingly painted to movie accurate standards over the course of about 6 month's last year. The rangefinder is a MS 3 peice design which I polished the clear resin and installed the LED's from underneath. The stalk is an RA which I machined to movie standards myself.It has an original Borden connector to which I utilized a design inside to complement it's function.

    This is the culmination of so much work I can't even describe it all and many other individuals talents for me to attain and build. To all those I say thank you.

    I can FINNNNNAAAALLY say that my Boba Fett ESB helmet is 100% and totally DONE. (collapses on floor in utter exhaustion).....

    Sadly few will ever see the inside since it will quietly rest atop my mannequin when I get it all mounted. I did it more for me and the few who do look at it to get a big WOW. Fancy interiors are more about doing it for yourself since they are so rarely seen,but when they are it is worth all the work. They also add tremendous value so that someday IF I ever sell the money I'll reap will be worth it. I sold a "GT" with a custom interior I did last year for nearly $800...a GT one!

    I have to agree with everyone here....Hats Off !!!!
    That is beautiful, congratulations !

    As for the question above, Maybe it would be nice if you placed a mirror underneath the helmet, at an angle, so that you could seen both parts at the same time. Building something like a showcase stand for the helmet.

    Looks really good! I like the extra touches you added. You gotta post a few more pics of the rest of your helmet exterior!

    yep, if the inner is THIS good, the rest must be awesome... the small pic doesn't do it justice.

    Outstanding Steve!! You incorprated some really neat ideas inside. I'm also thinking of adding a microphone type detail to the inside of my new helmet. Good job, and yeah, lets see some more pics of the outside.

    Great looking helmet, inside and out.

    Re: SHOWOFF my ESB Fett helmet w/INTERIOR!!!

    That looks awesome. Do the Microphone and Ear-pieces actually work? It would seem a shame to have those features, and not be able to use them

    Keep on keepin on

    That, is damn impressive! Amazing work Steve, that has got to be the most extensive interior I've seen done. Such great ideas in there too, if you don't mind, some I'd love to incorporate into mine, when my MS kit gets here!
    Oh, and to show off the interior, I was thinking, do a stand for it with a mirror base top, I'm gonna see about trying that.

    Here's some more exterior pics. The rangefinder stalk was not weathered in these pics,so please excuse it's "cleanliness" A couple are a bit fuzzy too. My impression of the rear of the helmet was very impartial to the blueish hue which can clearly be seen in these pics. I did a blue base with a green wash. The green wash isn't very representative in the pics.

    Wow, very nice. I can only hope mine looks that good when finished. One question, what's that speaker looking thing on the inside that looks like it leads to a circuit board?

    (hopeing I can get lucky the next time MS does a run on the interior pieces)
