    Proto Type Arc Trooper Helmet

    I'll be resin casting the helmet as soon as I buy the kit. Once I have one of casted helmets I'll clean it up then resin cast it again and put them up for sale. Smile

    So wish me luck as I've never done this kinda of work before.

    P.S I need a break from decal designing.

    Not easily.

    It involved sawing,cutting sanding oh and more sanding. In all it took 3 hours to get to this point.

    The picture is a bit to blurry to see how sloppy or amazing those connection lines are, any chance of a better photo?

    *pays close attention to the green clay* It looks sloppy! Laughing
    Just kidding, nice job on it, but the Phase 1.5 ARCs have the front of a Phase 2, and everything else is Clone wars, other than that, looks nice!

    I'll be re-making the mold to hide the part line better and also improve upon the filling hole and the air hole.

    Sadly I split some resin on the master helmet so I 'll have to remake it.There goes another CW helmet and PH2 helmet...Hum maybe I should cast a ph2 helmet?

    $3-$4, not any more, and you should cast the other helmets too.

    I've already put close to $100 into this project I need to at least make the money I've put into this. That's why the price will be so high.

    As for other helmets I might do a sonic trooper helmet like you've seen commander jet wear.

    Sonic trooper, $8, yes.

    The trouble is we could put a fin on a P2 helmet ourselves, it needs to be really awesome to pay a lot for somebody else to make it, so far... Well you're new to casting. Wink

    Just a ruthless capitalist talking. Laughing The helmets are good, I'd just not buy them yet.

    Actually the ARC trooper Helmet was first intended for my reseller.
