    Feb 28, 2015, 9:51 AM - Ralph McQuarrie Boba Fett Concept Helmet WIP #1

    Hey Guys ! Im new around here and i wanted to show you guys my latest build that i started like a year ago the:

    McQuarrie concept Fett.

    (The progress is slow because i have to study a lot so i don't have much free time on my hand)

    So first i made a basic mando helmet with the WOF templates then i started to build up the basic shapes on top of that like this:

    It was not easy because there aren't any templates for this helmet (or i just didn't find any i don't know)
    so i eyeballed the whole thing.

    After fiberglassing:

    After some deeper research i repaired some details like the visor then i started filling and sanding the whole thing (still in this process) :

    The next thing i did. I changed the shape of the mouth piece because it was too small so i made it a little bit bigger:

    Great work so far! I see that the helmet in your avatar has the ROTJ sindrome (vertically flipped image), as some of the concept arts were inverted in a couple of images. I say this so you can avoid adding the rangefinder to the wrong side on your build. Check out the Gallery for more images ==> Boba Fett Concept Art.

    Awesome project! looking good so far, I build the other McQuarrie fett helmet, not always easy interpreting sketches, but it's fun to do.
