Been a member here for a while mainly for model making hints and tips for a Cylon helmet I've been working on.
It was proving to be such a painful and expensive undertaking that I thought there must be an easier way to get a half decent result (especially the chrome effect) for those folks who just want a 'fun' version.
The result - my 1:1 Cylon helmet http://www.bazookajo.me.uk/
The plans are free to download, but it will probably cost you about $10 in mirror card, or less if you are scaling it down for the kiddies.
Hopefully other armour parts will follow (if I can get some decent measurements from somewhere).
Now, the only question I'm asking myself is - would there any mileage in a Boba Fett equivalent....
