    Cold Cast/Plain Resin Boba Fett Helmets (rosskow - UK )

    Hi dentedhelmet community,


    Back Story
    After a long long time, I (with the help of a RPF Member) have finished and moulded my custom made boba fett helmet.


    Click link to see my build for details Boba Fett helmet build, ongoing project.
    The mould/cast didn't turn out as clean as i had hoped so has some dimples, i'll try get some better pictures to give a fully/over all view of it tomorrow.


    Important bits


    For sale is a helmet, including 4 piece ear cap set
    , separate to be attached using whichever method preferred, glue, nuts/bolts, sellotape... the force?
    Also, please note that the stalk and range finder are not included.


    The helmet can be either cold cast, which can be polished up (see pictures below) or plain resin, with a off white colour.


    Prices are as follows:


    Cold cast helmet + 4 piece ear cap set = 85 plus shipping
    Plain resin helmet + 4 piece ear cap set = 80 plus shipping



    This is mine as is currently stands after buffing and polishing from some steel wool.




    If you're interested shoot me a PM


    Anyway, Thank you for looking.

    Update Post
    -------------

    Happy new year


    Bump and adding some pictures to give a better all over view.


    As i previously said its not a imperfection free. Here you can see some of the fall spots.




    That is the majority of it, on either of the side of the top dome, it was some slight flat spots, a pass of filler and quick sanding can easily correct this.


    The left side.

    You can see the flat spot on the dome again.


    The right side

    The white spots you can see, are where the aluminum powered hasn't quite reached so it is plain resin on the surface. This isn't always the case.


    The back



    Closer view

    You can see where some surface air bubbles have decided to settle, again this isn't always the case when casting.


    View of the inside with a visor installed.



    More pictures can be seen here




    Please PM if you have any questions.
    Thanks for looking.

    Definitely really good looking, when you were posting in your WIP thread I was hoping you were going to cast some! lol
    Would really like to see one painted up.

    Thank you, it's been about bloody time I got a cast to this stage.
    It has been a long road to get it where you see it now, I only started this whole thing back in Aug 2011, still though I have enjoyed it.

    Man this would be really tempting especially since i dont have to pay import taxes on things shipped from the UK
    But since i already have helmet waiting to be painted i better get that one done first

    it looks fantastic tho despite the dimples.

    are the dents / bumps fixed? and are cold casts now fuly covered?

    Re: Cold Cast/Plain Resin Boba Fett Helmets (rosskow - UK )

    For this instance the Cold cast coverage isn't a 100% guarantee, the above was the first attempt so obviously this will get better, but as you can see its very limited in the areas without it.
    The defect bumps haven't been corrected yet as a new mould hasn't been done (yet).
    Any more questions, feel free to ask, i'll be happy to answer them.

    if you was to fix the dents/bumps id take one like now lol but cause its cold cast id be worried that filling / sanding would defeat the object

    Just as a reminder, it is available in plain resin, so that wouldn't be a issue.
    and also a new mould will be done, but i wouldn't like to say any dates or time scales as that could change.
    thanks for the interest though.
