    Cold Cast Boba Helmets

    Here is the official thread about the helmet run for the FP budget Boba helmet in cold cast.

    The basic kit is $175 and comes with 1 layer of cold cast and 3 layers resin, cold cast ear cap, clear 3 part range finder, and aluminum range finder stalk. The ears and MQ-1 are already cast into the helmet. You can see more photos and info here http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/f...ld-cast-40206/ Shipping in the US is USPS Priority Mail with insurance included.







    On the right side I took my hand sander and some steel wool to it.







    I cast all my range finder parts in clean and in a pressure pot. The small lens is cast from a real SX-70 lens.






    To get on the list, please email me at . I have created a ticket system so that I do not lose who would like. In the past I have been forgotten and forgotten others. My goal is to keep this from happening again. My goal in life is to treat others the way I want to be treated. This is also just a hobby, please remember that. I only make a few helmets at a time. My family and work come first.

    Thanks,
    Asok

    Happy to hear you got the helmet in on piece. The PO has been breaking them lately.

    One email is all you need. I am working to fill orders as fast as I can. Between trooping, sick, and work, I am a little behind.

    OUCH! Pretty sad when something is marked Fragile, they can still break it! Since I am in Ohio, maybe I will drive to Indiana and pick mine up!

    hahaha J/K

    I just bought 500 of these stickers

    Maybe they will get the hint.

    I wanted a sticker that said something else but, it would most likely ensure that they smash it.


    Be warned, if you come to Indiana, I will make you cast your own helmet.

    Re: Cold Cast Boba Helmets

    I put stickers like that on all my Ebay stuff and it does tend to help a little!

    Casting - I have always wanted to learn how!!

    It takes about 3 hours to do 2 helmets. I do a Jango and a Boba at the same time. Then about 3 to 4 hours to demold.

    ...Mine was one of the unfortunate ones, I guess. Great looking helmet, but both mandibles were cracked. I had one of those ROTS/ESB "NOOOOOOO!" moments. Maybe I should turn it into a special edition "punched in the face" version?

    What the heck is up with them! Please let me know how you would like it fixed. New helmet or partial refund.

    How does that happen? It looks like the inner layers are intact, but like the CC layer chipped off.

    I will throw a few extra $ your way for extra bubble wrap on mine please!
