Anon Stormtrooper HDPE helmet kit: "Look Sir, droids"

Recommended Posts

And it´s me again with my second take on the infamous Davin Felth/"Look Sir, droids" helmet. While the weathering on the DA lid was still drying, I started trimming my Anon Stormtrooper HDPE kit (have I already said that I love these kits?:sweat:)

I tried my best to capture all the small details on this specific helmet:

After being happy with the alignment of the parts came painting

I´m going to try to cut a long story short here as I have already posted so many helmet builds here. 

So on we go with pics of the finished project and comparisons to screenshots:

and inside (artificial lighting)

I always take pictures from a certain distance and then zoom in to get the angle right.

RoCKo was so kind to provide the following reference pics of the helmet (note: cleaned and obviously taken after filming)

I had a Lego Stormtrooper Commander helmet lying around, those are in my opinion the best miniature helmet out there but the come with unpainted ears and the lines inside the traps and tears, so I painted the ears and also painted over the lives and finally used a toothpick to apply the specific weathering details for the "Look Sir, droids" helmet to have a "mini me" version. :D

Gorgeous Urs, you did it again!   :duim:

You’re a detail nut just like me, I hope I can achieve a similar nice helmet when I’m getting back to my Davon helmet again. For now it took me almost two weeks to add some more minor details to my TK bust.

Take a look here

When I’m going on with the same speed the Felth helmet will be finished around 2030!   :peace:


 

 


 

 

 

Note to myself: Never ever give away any reference pictures to Urs again, so that he can’t set the standard higher! Nah, just kidding, bro!   :pint1:

Thanks Dan and Roger! 

Without your great reference pics, I wouldn't have been able to do this, so thanks again for providing them Roger.  I'm sure your helmet will turn out great, good things are worth waiting for, cheers mate:salute:

There are no more reference pics of this helmet, at least none that I know of, I am sorry. 

But these should actually work fine.

Here's another. Like I said, any others are on my old hard drive that I cannot access. In fact, I have 2 that date back 20 years - both have some rare photos of helmets and armour.

Again, first time i see that one.

And the drives, are they broken?

By the way Paul, ¿are the tube stripes around 15mm tall? I read that in some thread that i cant find now

They are not broken, but they are old. I am not computer savvy and don't know how to retrieve them.

15mm is a good size for the tube stripes, though some may be shorter or longer by 1mm or 2mm. They didn't use a stencil for the stripes but it's obvious they used tape to mask the edges, so that's where there will be a slight difference in stripe width from helmet to helmet. The amount of curve on the stripes vary too.

Some people specialize in retrieve files from drives, im just saying, there is hope.

 

I noticed that, yes, the curve and thickness of the stripes vary even in the same line of stripes.

 

The thickness seems to be something around 3mm, but as you said, that, for sure varies among the helmets.

I have one of these helmets on order (for about a year now I think) excited for when they finally ship, they look worth the wait for sure.

Hi there. Would you say that the lego helmet is 1/6 scale? I really want an accurate 1/6 helmet

It's probably a little smaller than 1/6 scale. But it's a really cool helmet. I would suggest getting a used one of these as the prizes for new ones are going up right now.
