    Don't mean to hijack but I am curious to hear what numerous inaccuracies a helmet even with genuine lineage to originals might have? I wouldn't have necessarily expected that. Haha!
    No reproduction can be 100% accurate to the original helmets. All have flaws from the casting process and where they have been re-worked to correct these issues.

    A couple more progress shots of my helmet build. Building out the rear panels and the key slot detail. The helmet is slowly coming together, the next stage is fitting the dome and reworking where the dome curves to the trim. As i reach each stage I'm constantly tweaking the fine detail...

    Thanks for the comments, i feel I'm making some progress now!
    I decided the left lower cheek was slightly out, so off it came and was replaced with a slightly revised shape, this also enabled me to add the curved profile on the bottom edge i had missed. The dome has been fitted and the join profile added. Also adding the final upper right ear platform...

    G mate this is bloody fantastic, Ive had the pleasure of painting not one but two of your old helmets, one of them is sat on my kitchen table right now. Those were a thing of beauty so looking forward to seeing how this turns out. I dont have a helmet for my suit yet so if you do a run in the future, you can put my name down.

    Cheers Welsh. Hopefully I will have this helmet finished in the next few weeks, then I will start my first ESB paint job in at least 2 years, hopefully I'm not too rusty and my airbrush still works! I won't be doing a run of these but I can certainly do special orders...

    I think those are the Pre-Pro #3 helmet images from the Master Replicas 'photo shoot' (they are all in the TDH Gallery).

    Spot on Raf, they are the PP3 images in the gallery. Updates to follow shortly...

    Quick update. Test fitting my alloy ears. This weekend i will be fitting the key slots, cutting in the forehead arrows and tweaking the final details/ smoothing the surfaces. The yellow paint you see is a primer/ filler so the final coat on the sculpt will be grey primer. I just have to decide wether to add the dent, or keep this pure like the original sculpt and add the dent after casting? Any opinions on that?

    I finally got around to moulding and casting my scratch build, so here's helmet one with visor and ears attached, just working on the borden at the moment. Also finishing up a second kit which will be a ESB paint up commission for our very own 'Captain Awesome'...
