Update: Been working on a U wing helmet but have gotten the files needed to print out the Y wing Helmet.

I need a new printer and it will ship in a few weeks. Once it comes in I can continue this helmet build. Also Ywingfighter (Frank) identified the forehead greeblie that I wanted to use from the album so that is a huge leap forward. Almost all of them are now modeled (except one cheek greeblie).

Not much else to report.

UPDATE:

Still waiting on the printer. The helmet is actually finished though. Check out the pictures on the ruthlessfx FB page. Our collaboration is about as perfect a copy as can be made.

I will make my own from the files but will get the visor from him.

All right. I am in business.

I have about a week of printing the files as they are large pieces of the helmet

Well, it actually happened!

I had lots of trials printing the parts out, and if I had been a bit more precise in my gluing I would have less finishing work but here it is:





The parts are awesome, and I need to rethank Charles at ruthlessfx for designing for me what is the most accurate Y wing helmet currently available.

UPDATE:

Slowly sanding away. Been working on my U wing build, that has taken most of the time up. But sanding, bondo, etc and this helmet is almost ready for painting.
