Joe R Styrene helmet rebuild

Recommended Posts

I was browsing Ebay the other week and saw that Joe R was selling a damaged styrene pull from the ROTJ helmets that he and CFO done. This one was used by his kids and had seen better days - it looks like it was one of the drums at the end of ROTJ.

 

Always loved the Joe R / CFO helmet so I decided to buy it, with the idea of it being my first ever repair job / rebuild. Ive filled all holes, cracks etc sanded and primed the helmet.  Ive dropped a major doodoo on a certain part but thankfully ive rectified it.

 

Stay tuned for a beginners attempt at rebuilding this lovely helmet.

20190303_183203.thumb.jpg.8a2c45e2e212566c65cd98fd676bf37a.jpgSo I've finished this. I wanted to go the Endor weathered style as it's what I remember fondly when I saw it in 1983. After some advice from Joe, I opened up the eyes which looks better. Ears....bloody he'll....Ears!!! Had a job getting these right . Thanks to Paul for those and the lenses.

 

All in £100 for a CFO Jedi Stormie and I'm so happy. ESB next!!
