    Helmet in progress

    I agree, but the lighting affects every photo, some shots it looks chrome, others it looks darker gunmetal grey.

    Helmet in progress

    All finished. The hardest part has been the paint. Chrome paint is fine, but it's unstable and needs sealing. But sealing chrome paint dulls the surface down to a poor silver at best. To cut a long story short, I spent many weeks doing test after test, using all kings of techniques and products...

    Helmet in progress

    I just wasn't 100% happy with the curvature of the visor/upper cheek. So these areas have been altered. Now it's ready to mould...

    Helmet in progress

    Finally finished the sculpt, moulding this week. Lots of tweaks since the last photos, I'm very happy with the final result, this gets me motivated to get the first fibreglass copy made and painted up.

    Helmet in progress

    Got the crest over the dome finished. This leaves the right ear assembly and curving of the right cheek to do. Then some general clean-up and ready to mould. These are just quick pictures with my phone, the detailed and correctly lit pictures will be done when it's all complete.

    General Boba Fett Pulce 40 Empire Strikes Back Pistol

    I've now altered my Pulce using all the info discussed in this thread, including removing the logos, repositioning of the front barrel section and adding the strip of tape. I've also adjusted the brown colour and the weathering techniques on both the brown section and the barrel to match Art's...

    Helmets in progress

    By far, The Empire Strikes Back helmet is the most popular prop that I make. I've been building and painting these for over 15 years and there seems to be as much, if not more interest now than there ever was. Here's a row of V4 helmets that are in progress at the moment.

    Han Solo DL-44 Blaster.

    Here's my attempt at Han Solo's ANH Hero DL-44 with unique 'Floating Display Stand'. I drew this digitally, then broke it down into more than 30 sections ready for hi resolution 3D printing. Once all the parts were printed, they were all moulded using mainly compression moulds. This was quite...
