Hey all, some of you might recall my build reports of the McQuarrie concept Boba Fett and Vader helmets. This time Iím going to build another McQuarrie concept helmet. I was so intrigued by the samurai influences McQuarrie put in his early concepts I had to explore it even further and focus on his very first sketches.
I donít want to put in too much time, so Iím not going to build it 1:1 but in scale. The sketches are very rough on the details so a mockup in scale style seems fitting.
Iíll start with the helmet and drawn this side view, getting that samurai shaped design. I figured it would be best to start with a paper cone to drawn on and cut into the best shape, later I can use this as an outline mold.
