Looks great, are you going to be vacuforming these or making a master to cast in resin? I've been toying around with making an A-wing pilot costume, since Carolyn doesn't like the orange as much, lol.

Well I want to do them out of resin like most new style buckets because it will hold better detail and is easyier for me to do in my spare time. But I am concerned with the weight of it all. so when it's closer to being done I'll hammer all that out. also green beats orange any day! ;)

@ rome : I'm gonna dub this project lobot thanks to you. lol

ok! Today is my birthday, so as a gift to all of you guys & gals I have an update. :)

I smoothed and evened it out a bunch, added the ear hubs, the ear hollows, and side vents. I just need a few more of the small details and the base will be ready to cast.

now what you really want. THE PICS!

Not too shabby! All I can see is veryminor smoothing work here and there, but it's only the anal retentive bit in me that even bothers. I dont know much(re: anything) about A-Wings or their pilots, but I can say this:

Great looking sculpt man!

Top is fairly strait and even, but the bottom ring/lip is really uneven from left to right. I tried my best to sculpt under there, but I knew I'd have to fix it in post as they say. lol

here's a shot of the helmet from the movie.
