    Snowtrooper Helmet / Armour Build

    Snowtrooper sculpt is now complete and ready to mould. I will be putting the whole build on my website very soon. The only thing left to do is to cut the template for the cowl.

    Great work! I have always loved the snowtrooper armor! I can't wait to see the completed costume. I'll have to check your site more often for updates on your progress. As always your excellent work amazes me!

    I cut the front and rear cowl templates last night and did a test fitting. Pictures just show the front cowl in position.

    Mould is finished and the first copy is pulled. It's trimmed and painted with "non yellowing" white Enamel Paint. I then used a cutting compound on the surface to get it incredibly smooth. It now looks and feels just like ABS plastic. I've also fitted the cowl and lenses. I now need to put some padding on the inside and fit a chin strap... oh, and weather it..!

    Re: Snowtrooper Helmet

    Shoulder sculpt finished and ready to mould, I will upload pics soon. Starting the shoulders bell sculpts this week. I would like all the armour sculpted and moulded before the end of December... so the answer is YES.

    Re: Snowtrooper Helmet

    I must say, if this is offered as a complete or even partial armor set, put me down top of the list. I'm all in. I just finished my Fett (well, finished enough to wear) and I'm itching to start the next project. I'm a huge fan of your work (my helmet is a Bobamaker) and I have a partial set of armor of yours I plan to paint myself. I would like to tackle the Snowtrooper. Such a great design!

    Re: Snowtrooper Helmet

    OK, I will be selling helmets very soon, I'm just finalising the best way to attach the cowl and the most effective padding for the inside then they're ready to go. Knees are sculpted and I will be moulding them in the next couple of days. I'm about to start sculpting the hand armour, this should be pretty quick as it will be done in wet clay which is a very fast way to work.

    I will be updating my website very soon with comparison shots of my helmet against the ILM props. http://www.bobamaker.co.uk/Snowtrooper_Build.html

    Re: Snowtrooper Helmet

    I know the thread is called "snowtrooper HELMET" but I can't seem to change it to "Helmet and Armour"

    Not to worry, the knee sculpts are now complete, I'm really pleased with the way they turned out. These are now ready to mould. I will update my website with the build process very soon.
