After seeing Armando's awesome "Tantive IV" helmet, I thought I'd share my attempt at a helmet that has been put through some serious stunt work.
While surely no real competition for Armando's awesome helmet nor photography, I still think it turned out quite good.

This is not meant to be a specific, screen-seen helmet but rather my own approach.

All details are hand painted, the base helmet was primed and then sprayed in the correct colour to simulate HDPE (see my avatar). Gloss white over that with paint runs and some chipping, and that was it.
The helmet and HDPE paint came from R2Dan. The lid was a donation from my good mate to cheer me up from quite a bad mood... Wink Thanks again, bro!

Here it is:
















I'm planning on doing the same to my TM helmet that I just ordered.

You did a great job on this one - I'll have to finish my DA hdp(fak)e lid sometime soon as well I guess

That is an awesome job- you have really captured the screen used look.

Is that a 1.5 or 1mm lid mate?

I cant get enough of seening these screen used replic lids,They are such a fantastic display item.every trooper should have or build one for there collection.

The chipped helmet is going to be the 2011 clique Smile

They are no longer the 'odd one out' but 'de-riguer' lol!


Do you guys plan on using these lids for trooping in at all?

Thanks, fellas!

It's gonna be a 1mm helmet (I think?), the one that Paul normally supplies with his 1mm ABS suit.
I do plan on using it for trooping, absolutely.

In German Garrison, trooping in it still makes you the "odd man out", right Dan? Wink

Here's one more pic to better show the actual proportions of the lid, camera placed further away from the helmet and then zoomed in.

You guys should be happy you're in the UKG Wink

We get the same remarks here...

' you should not troop in that. Or, latex hand plates are for display.. '


The best compliment for me is; 'that looks like crap!'
