    Thanks. I can see offering a few fiberglass copies in either gelcoat or cold cast finishes.

    OH! I get it now. I thought you were doing a clone/mando cross. But you're not! Your'e doing a mando from the clone wars. I'm super smart....as you can see.

    It looks awesome!!! Very precise to the pictures. Well done and good work.

    Ok, here is the final version and comparison shot next to a BKBT cc Jango helmet. This weekend I hope to begin the mold. The ears will be cast separately just in case it turns out I don't have the placement correct once more ref. pics come out.

    Ok, time for a small update. The first layer of silicone is curing on the ear pieces. Additionally, the fiberglass jacket is curing on the helmet and should be ready for demolding later tonight.

    Re: Clone Wars Mando Bucket

    Ok, the molds are completed and I should have the first cold cast pull out by tonight. I'm hoping to have this assembled with a removable visor and the paint began by this weekend. So now I just need to figure out the paint scheme.

    I love it

    I'm a bit surprised that we haven't seen the mandos yet. They are holding out on us! Do you have the Clone Wars Season 1 DVDs? In the book that's included, there is some mando concept art at least.

    Re: Clone Wars Mando Bucket

    Thanks guys. I'll have to check out those concept pics if I ever buy the dvd. I'm very excited about how this helmet has turned out and really excited to try my hand at the animated paint scheme. One thing I can't figure out is if the mandible areas are one or two shades of blue?

    Re: Clone Wars Mando Bucket

    I was able to steal a few hours yesterday to work on the helmet. Now I just need to pick up a new shade 5 welding visor today and install it. In the meantime here's a few sneak peak photos with a temporary visor tacked in place.

    Re: Clone Wars Mando Bucket

    Can one still see out of a shade 5 visor? I am working on a helmet and was thinking of getting a shade 3 because I was worried a shade 5 would be too hard to see out of.

    Re: Clone Wars Mando Bucket

    Shade 5 are the proper screen acurate Fett visor is I remember correctly. I use them exclusivly in all the helmets I made and have no issues. A little dark indoors if the lightings dim otherwise no worries.
