    The knees look 110% on the money. Just went to your site and I love the way you built up the helmet sculpt. Very simple. The skateboard helmet you used is perfect too, I have been using a M1 Helmet Liner as a base for my Galactic Marine helmet and now I want to switch to the skaters helmet you are using

    This skater/BMX helmet is excellent because it's made of a MATT plastic that can be sanded, cut and painted very easily.

    I have 3 helmets cast and ready to ship:
    • HELMET 1 = fully finished and weathered - pictures attached.
    • HELMET 2 = Painted white and has the cowl and lenses cut and ready to fit.
    • HELMET 3 = In grey primer, Lenses and Cowl cut.

    I just need to work out the price for an unfinished kit, a painted kit and a fully painted and weathered helmet.

    Great work the weathered one could be the real prop,

    Though one thing I did notice today when watching ESB (though Im sure you looked at heaps of reference mateiral so I may be wrong) the nose on the real ones seems to stick out quit far almst like the stormtroopers as if it was cut off at the teeth, and the cowl sort of hangs down from the point of the nose, if that makes sense,

    How ever once again another great sculpt from you , knees look great , Imlooking forward to seeing you do the shoulders

    Yes , I understand your point. But once the helmet is worn, the bottom of the cowl does touch your chest which lifts it to look like the ESB screen caps. I've also sourced a thicker vinyl now which holds it shape a lot better.

    I've now finished sculpting this item. It's made from polyurethane resin with an "ALUMINIUM COLDCAST" surface.

    That helmet is amazing! I'm looking to replace my cowl. Got ahold of MC and they're back-ordered for the material for a month, but I can wait.

    Thank you. I think I'll be starting either the gaunts or shoulder sculpts next. Not much left to do on the body armour now.
