    hi everyone... it seems like it's been forever since i've been here.
    there were a few members who asked me about my avatar awhile back and i told them all about it and said that i would post images here sometime, and well.... i guess i'm here to do that after all this time.

    here's my mcquarrie snowtrooper helmet. you can see the build pics here along with the armor that i've been working on FOREVER!!!
    http://forum.clonetroopers.net/index.php?showtopic=9739

    here's the finished products originally sculpted and casted by me from molds built by SGB.
    the helmet on the left is owned by Yodasan and the helmet on the right is mine.
    feel free to PM me for any details, and thanks for looking.

    I've thought about doing this helmet before because I love the concept stuff! There's just something about the preproduction art of the OT that clicks.

    Awesome helmet!

    Check out the McQuarrie production portfolios or the ART OF THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK book. There are a few full pics in there. There's always the McQ Concept figure, too.

    Yes, I am actually drawing on the face of my Dark Trooper, trying to figure out the contours on the face and eyes.

    You did a great job on the weathering Adam, I like it.

    Really cool - I'll certainly intend on contacting you sometime in the future once I move back to the states...I always loved McQuarrie's concept art, and to think that there's even a sculpted helmet...fantastic!

    I didn't really like the look of the helmet when I first saw it, but as I scrolled down the page it grew on me. Such a cool project, can't wait to see it all done up

    That's very cool, I also really like the weathering on the helmet. I take it you're going to build the blaster rifle as well?
