Did a little more work on this in May but never posted it. I was going to add the wavy brow,but decided against it, so i was in the process of un-waving the brow lol I will continue on this once all my Vaders are done

wow that looks really great!
I'm going to try my scratch build soon which will be a combo of the instructables template / the batter's helmet version/ and just-winging-it.

So cool to see it can be done, and done well.

That looks great DV! One thing I would point out... the inside corners of the visor look a tad too short. Once you cut out the visor, you can probably fix that. In any case, its looking fantastic!

good eye shinobi! i noticed that myself, and i plan to fix it on this master so when i cast one (or a few if anyone wants hinthint) i wont have to skew away from the "lines" when trimming them out!

Well its been a LONg time since i postedin this thread...this project has been on hold due to some financial constraints. But im hoping to have this done and in rubber by years end. I've sharpened up the lines a lot on this now, still working out the wavy brow to "unwavy"..and almost done with the ears. I have a bunch oif Vaders to finish and i have CV coming up, but once im back im hoping to continue on this and get it done!

Been workin on this a little here and therein between other projects (isnt it always the way? lol) I've added the range finder stalk "stops" and cleaned up the key slots a bit. I also finished the ears. I still wanna sharpen up the lines more,but its getting close to being ready to put into rubber! heres a few pics...

The ears dont fit super perfect, but shouldnt be a problem. the rangefinder stalk ear cap fits pretty near perfect though. I also opened up the top of the "T" on the visor..it was a bit to narrow. Im almost up to the scary part....the dent!

Nice build! I remember looking at this when you began it. Makes me think of the metal bucket I have in my workshop... that's unfinished!

Hmmm. I just finished putting together my fettpride lid. But, maybe we could trade some other services (easy guys!). How is your paint work?

haha! Well i sure cant touch that lid with a 20ft pole! lol! FP lids are the best! If i didnt get a nice deal on the painted BM i have,i would have gotten a FP. My painting is good i think,BUT im not so confident on the helmet painting yet. I painted all my gear except the helmet. I did however add more detail to the helmet after i got it. Im gonna practice painting on one of these castings (once i do that lol)and see how that goes.

Well guys...aside from a few minor tweaks...this is just about ready to be put in rubber! The ear pieces still have some spot filler that needs to be sanded,but they are done also!

Thanks..thats exactly the look i was going for! Still need to clean up the keyslots add the borden connector and tweak some lines on the back, but its mostly done! The ears, believe it or not, were made on thin wood i cut to size,(the rangefinder cap was a piece of ABS) and i just built up bondo on it and shaped it with a razor while it was still "puttylike" and just sanded it and carved with a dremel repeatedly till i got it right. those smears on them is spot filler i havent sanded yet..lol. Over all the whole helmet isnt 100% accurate, but its pretty close i think. im happy with it for now. Hoping i can offer some budget conscious people here on TDH another alternative to e-bay with this.
