    Teaser 1 Please no goofy acronyms LOL

    Here's a teaser of one of my personal helmets in the works.

    The helmet is an unaltered casting of an orginal. I only filled in the scratches which are prepro 2 to make an ESB version out of this. NOTHING has been changed or altered. The ears are being made right now machined and not cold cast. It's accurate down to the finest of detail. I'll keep everyone posted on the progress. As far as the brow droop I will probably create that myself and on the real ESB it is a repair and inherent to that one helmet only. I'm glad I took the leap and grabbed the casting I had folks talking me out of it etc and that it's a piece of junk and not worth it. Another mans trash is another mans treasure.

    Added the bottom pic shows mold leakage on the ear but it was a test pull.

    Man that's going to be one sweet bucket.! I would have loved to have had earcaps machined from metal but it was too costly. Guess I'll have to settle for my "K-Mart" Cold Cast
    Seeing as this is in the hands of the paint guru, I suspect this to be one hell of a bucket! Keep us posted Lee!

    Hey Lee, is this the old copper colored plug or is this a cast from that?

    Wow. . . that is so cool!!
    I guess we could refer to this one as a

    Real
    Original
    Genuine
    Unaltered
    Example

    Helmet.



    Sorry, RS. The temptation was too great!

    Spidey,

    We might not be tripping all over our tongues because a bunch of us were around when Lee got the original bronze lump and knew this would eventually happen. 8) It's not that we're not excited... just that we knew it would be coming eventually. You're not overly excited... too much.

    Lee, beautiful piece man... you are one lucky S.O.B. I'll be expecting my copy to arrive soon.

    However, if you wanted to be an a-hole I wouldn't hold it against you!

    I never thought we would see the day when someone had an original, unaltered 1:1 casting of an original Fett helmet. I've never been so happy about being wrong

    Just to clarify my comments... when I said we were around.. I meant here on TDH... not in person. I've never seen it in person although I wish I had! Just here on TDH when he first announced he had it.
