Ive made a second Boba fett helmet using my premium parts. There is less parts and these will be made in white resin to keep the price down. They will be clean cast with even thickness and a smooth interior. The V2 includes a sharper cast with support for micro switches and extremely easy to assemble parts.
All the hard work has been done on this helmet all the ears have been assembled and molded in. The MQ-1 is already molded in the back keyslot. This kit includes a great 3 piece rangefinder with accurate clear parts. The topper is hollow so a light kit can be added into the rangefinder. The inner ear now will support the accurate micro switches. You can now use either a wired or self contained light kits. The outer ear cap has attachment rods molded in! The stalk is hollow coldcast reinforced with brass, with threads to attach to the rangefinder molded in Choose your borden either a coldcast aluminum or brass. Also includes hardware.
The cost of these kits are $155 PLUS shipping for a raw cast.
I can include a hand cut dark green visor for $15 extra.
The coldcast version has metal powders mixed in the outer layer, so all you have to do is break the surface with a fine grit sanding sponge or some steel wool to expose the metal.
Advantages is it will look and feel like the helmet is made from real solid metal. It can be polished to a near mirror finish, damage or weathering will look more real.
Disadvantages is it makes the helmet more rigid. WIth any thing rigid it can crack or chip easier.
Important when paying please pay as GOODs and put in the notes, the forum, your username and what your paying for. This will help me speed up shipping.
Make sure your correct address will be displayed as that is the address it will be shipped to.
Note please clean your cast with a good degreaser cleaning agent to get any mold release off the helmet and parts before painting.
These kits will be available until I delete this thread.
Finished Helmets are available. I can occasionally take on paint ups but likely I can arrange to send your kit to a painter.
If you want to get a finished helmet just sent me a PM.
