    Hello, and welcome...


    I cant see any cracks or the Rangfinder, could you post pics of it? Also it looks like its a caste of a Rubies Jango Helmet, cause of the way the left earcap is fat at the top and thin at the bottom, like you said its something to work on. not a bad price for it.

    Hey everyone,

    thx for the quick responses and warm welcomes

    I asked the guy from star wars helmets.com about the origin as he used to have the same one and he thought it was cast from a Don Post Boba. I filed off the borden bit before painting it.

    A big thx 4 that paul

    well that's basically how it's looking just now i got sum body filler to try cover up the crack's and scratches. I know seem's like a shame to undo your original work, but it's my first helm so am prepared to put in the time and love. was just wondering if it's ok 2 wet sand over the auto body filler or how 2 go about smoothing out the helmet?

    many thanks

    I would have thought it's ok to wet sand body filler but you may be better off making a post in the Propbuilding forum.
    No problems undoing my work, can't wait to see your progress on it.

    Finally listed my costume on ebay.
