Ooh, I'll definitely be interested in that U-wing pilot helmet!

For sanding, do you have a random orbit electric sander? I found that one of those helped me a lot when sanding large areas on my dark trooper armor. Mine has variable speeds so it comes in pretty handy.

I have several sander options, I go with a mouse sander, then use a pen or detail sander, but honestly, I get the best results by hand. It sucks but 120, 180, 220 and I am good to go. As soon as a part comes off the printer I sand away, it helps to reduce the feeling of how much sanding to do.

I will update t e U Wing thread as soon as I lay the mold. I should be able to do that this weekend hopefully.

Thought I would add yet another helmet to finish some day. SW Rebels A wing helmet. The visor assembly moves up and down.

The head they animated is extremely long and narrow, translating that to a real human head lead to a few differences in the shape and placement of some surface features, But other than that looks pretty good.








Compliments my other Rebels A/Y Wing. This has some accuracy issues that I will fix while post processing.





Just curious where you were got the models? made them yourself? If so, are you marketing them for Sale?

The models were commissioned by me through Skylu props. He sells them on his etsy page.

I have been slowly redoing the Y wing helmet though. It had a ton of issues that I have now mostly fixed. A couple more but it is darn near close.

My Y wing helmet is different enough that I plan to mold and sell it. It is very distinctly different than what I had modeled originally.

With the cold weather things have slowed down but I am still plugging away.

The A wing helmet, well, it has its own issues but I decided not to redo that one, at least by hand. Been slowly sanding away on it too.

Well, I am really almost done lol. I redid some stuff and here is some shots:

Side shot where I redesigned the inserts to curve to match the side curve:




Added the redesigned circle part and sanded to match the curve of the cheek:


Brow finally done with the added lip for the visor:


lest we forget what I am doing:








So now, I need to redo the top of the helmet to add the groove that goes around it... Means I will have to cut out the top, design and print the groove, and put it all back together. If I can do that this will be done.

If anyone sees anything, let me know to fix.I know the front chin inset is not deep enough.... but I can live with it the way it is now.
