Rebels Stormtrooper Helmet


Recommended Posts

Decided to get one on these Rebels Stormtrooper helmets a while ago, finally have some time to get started.

 

Helmet has some nice details but it is pretty lumpy in places, it's going to need a lot of sanding.

Started the mammoth task of sanding away all the lumps, 3 hours later it is ready to start trimming

Bit more trimming

Another all over sand with some 180grit sandpaper then it's time for some primer/filler

Great work Glen, can't wait to see the finished product. Have been considering one for my collection.

That's the one.

 

Made of resin.

 

Hope to get to sanding some primer down in the next few days :D

Did you get this completed?  I have one 2nd hand that I'm refurbishing at the moment.

Finished quite a while ago. Added some foam, fans and wore it for fun at one of our conventions

Nice work!  I'd love to know what blue you used for the stripes...still the French Blue?

Ah...my 2nd hand one had just the bucket...no mic tips, decals, etc.

Definitely a lighter blue than French blue

That was my thought as well...it looks to almost have a turquoise hue to it.

 

I'm going to try to reproduce this to be as screen accurate as I can get it...with the light grey weathering and edge lighting on the teeth.  It will be the third Filoni-animated bucket I've done...!

 

I may be picking your brain from time to time, so thanks for all your help!!

Something about these helmets makes them look really mad.  :laugh1:

Looks great though! 

 

I agree, I love their smushed-up frown, I think it's so cute hahaha!!!  

 

Great looking build so far!  Can't wait to see the rest!
