    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    I've really enjoyed reading this thread but one little thing keeps bugging me according to the reference pic it looks like the face plate should be flush with the brow of the helmet. Almost like the dome and face plate were one solid piece minus the flair in the helmet. I could be wrong. I hope that makes sense. Either way this is one awesome build.

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    Yeah, I thought that at first too. Though after studying various pics, and focusing on the temples you can see that the face plate isn't flush with the dome. At least, that's my interpretation.

    What an awesome build!! Not seen this clone design before, but you've really done your homework on this and nailed it in my opinion. Big thumbs up

    I wouldn't think it would be flush. It should be two helmets, an inner and outer. But, I still can't figure out really what the CW guys are trying to do with this design, not how I would have done it. THOUGH, you are doing a fantastic job and I am very impressed and I will want one!:thumbup

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    Yeah, I was talking to Mojo about the design of it the other day. I first thought that the face plate could be fixed to the dome to make the two parts one lid after the kit is done. Though Mojo came up with an idea of using the inner piece from a hard hat, the adjustable part that fits your head? To use that and fix it to the faceplate so you'd be able to keep the dome seperate from the face plate. Then once you have the face plate on, you can just slide the dome down over it???

    Another idea that we haven't fully explored yet but I may give that a go when I get a cast back.

    This has been a great build to read. Well done, If I ever get around to casting copies of my CW helmet, I'd love to trade you at some stage.

    WOW! That's one hell of a compliment bro! I've been watching your work for a while. I love your builds. Your Hayabusa and EOD helmets are superb too!

    Thanks bro!

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    the only thing i noticed out of place was on the "chin" area, the material semed to bow or curve out more, almost like pillowing or seams on a car seat

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    You're right about that. That can easily be chieved with a thin layer of padding. I forget the name of the stuff now but I used it to pad my flack vest for my custom Mando.

    Skupilkinson that Snow Clone is one sweet Helmet and ive never seen them before not seen the clone wars cartoon, but im a big fan of the Snowtrooper's in ESB as I have a set of armor for them and in the process of getting a Snow Commander set of armor including the ATAT driver set im doing now with other stuff, are you possibly going to cast these or is it just a one off as I would love one there super cool.

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    It's been a while since I posted an update. The lid is now finished!

    I'll be sending it to my buddy, Mojo-Fett for moulding and casting either today or Monday. So before I start an interest thread, I wanted to get some feedback on what people would like? The way I see it you can either have a simple raw cast lid and the resin greebles(mouth inserts and aerators), or the addition of precut vinyl cowl with the lid?

    Obviously having the cowl supplied would effect the final price but I just want to see what people would prefer so I can look into the cost of the vinyal material.

    Also, remember, we're in the UK so shipping for our US friends will be extra.

    Any and all feedback concerning this would be much appreciated!!

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    Dang Skip!!! That is GORGEOUS!!!!!

    2 questions,

    1. How did you get the helmet so thick, is it bondo, or just layers of styrene???

    and,

    2. Is the pepakura template for sale???

    Thanks alot!

    The thickness is from the bondo. It makes a very solid helmet but a little heavy for comfort. The template isn't available yet but will be in time.

    Re: My Snow Clone Scratchbuild!

    skip,
    How big would your head have to be to fit into it?
    only asking as i have a large head (7.3/8)
    will the final helmet be as thick as the original.
    i've said it before and i'll say it again great work.
