Anyone want a $10 Cylon Helmet?


New Hunter
Been a member here for a while mainly for model making hints and tips for a Cylon helmet I've been working on.

It was proving to be such a painful and expensive undertaking that I thought there must be an easier way to get a half decent result (especially the chrome effect) for those folks who just want a 'fun' version.

The result - my 1:1 Cylon helmet

The plans are free to download, but it will probably cost you about $10 in mirror card, or less if you are scaling it down for the kiddies.

Hopefully other armour parts will follow (if I can get some decent measurements from somewhere).

Now, the only question I'm asking myself is - would there any mileage in a Boba Fett equivalent.... :)

Best Regards

I think this is a great idea. I have a styrene helmet sitting on my shelf but the problem is getting it chromed. This is a great way to build an inexpensive costume & have fun with it. I look forward to seeing more!

Downloaded the template and made the helmet. Love it! What a Great cheap alternative. Yes a Boba Helmet would be Awesome. AND How about the Rocketeer?

Im so glad I found this, I found a tut on line for making the red eye using leds and a cool gift idea of using a teddy bear to make the cylon out of. Now I have the stuff to make the armor for it as well, super cool. Call it a late Valentin's day gift. She loves BSG so this will work great, I even have a cheap sound recorder for the nose to play "By your command" for it. Will start this project soon and post pictures if of.

Thank again.
