I'm looking to work on an episode 2 Naboo pilot for my wife. I have seen pictures of a brilliant helmet by a gentleman using the name of a famous giant lizard.

Anyone have his information so I can contact him?

Thanks.

Well, I decided to start a new helmet myself.

I think, in lieu of working on the N2 helmet and facemask, we're going with the original helmet to wear with the later costume in Clone Wars style.

Sure we have the terrible mass market version of the helmet, but it would look a whole lot nicer to have a prop quality lid. Luckily, the impossible to find headphones made their way to Amazon so I picked them up.

My plan is to use real leather instead of painting the brown and metal detailing on the edges similar to what Godzilla has done in the past. As far as the ear cup detailing and the insets on the helmet sides, I'll mold those from sheet styrene and perhaps beg Blasterpro to let me use his tools to vacuform them. Otherwise, here it goes!

Here's parts wise what we have so far:

Sounds promising. If you were able to make some casts of the helmet I'm sure you'd get some interested buyers, I know people here have been wanting a decent Naboo pilot helmet for years. Me included. Razz

Would this helmet work as the base? It's an ERB Maverick 2..

There's pretty much no difference between the Maverick and the Maverick 2, so you should be good on that one.

Cool. Thanks. What are you using for the decorative trim on your helmet?

not sure yet. I was going to scour Joann's and Michael's to see if something works, but I have a feeling it will be a furniture decorative trim.
