ok folks it's been awile sense i've shown you guys anything new, but an amazing new photo posted by Ylan (thanks again) had me in a mad dash to do some resculpting.

i thinned out the outer ring, gave the ears a more hub shape,and corrected the box on the top. I also made the whole thing longer.
here's some left side pics (still fixing the right side)

Awing






all in all I think it has a more sweeping and dynamic look. What do you guys think?

Looks neat to me. Though it doesn't seem to tilt down in the back like it does in the other images (if it's supposed to, anyway, perhaps it's not really supposed to tilt down on the pilot's head)-- but that's probably an easy fix once it's off that head later, anyway.
Though I have a question... How are you going to use that helmet? I mean, are you going to somehow chip away the "head" that's there, or are you going to mold something else around the design, kind of like vacuum forming it or something?

I think the tilt is just cause they have it balanced on the blast sheild. i'm gonna wear mine strait but anyone that puts it on could have it tilted if they wanted. lol
I'm gonna do a resin copy first. then cut and smooth it all out. Then cast one more time and that will be my final piece. Then hopefully light will come from the heavens and angels will sing. Then I will shout out loud "look what I have created!". Wink

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

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!

Wow, outstanding work. It's looking great!
Man, I wish I could sculpt that well. I'd love to be able to sculpt up an accurate B-wing helmet that doesn't look as amateurish as mine does, what with the uneven edges and such.

And happy birthday as well!

I'm sure there are lots of people here who would love to have an A-wing helmet instead of having to use an X-wing or Y-wing version.
If you do start selling them I'd buy one as well. I don't plan on putting together an A-wing outfit but I dig the helmets so I'd love to have one. Razz

I would be interested, I love my Y-wing helmet, but it would be fun to have a "real" A-wing bucket as well.
