You sure? Well... that'd be cool then if they are on par with each other. Is it an assembly issue then, making them look so different?

So why in the heck haven't anyone supplied pictures of the Laws v1 & v2 and other helmets missing on the list... or... have they and I've just forgotten to create the .jpg's and post them up? :whip2

I agree the IH does look nice, but did the maker ever provide any evidence to support his TIE's provenance - i.e. that it wasnt just another derivative of another TE face?

Cheers

I agree,the IH helmet is really beautiful.

Any informations about this helmet?

I found these pictures on Jolly Roger board. The guy showed pictures of the WIP. Essentially the helmet, the detailed parts (ear box, mohawk) but nothing about the faceplate.
The thread have been deleted (because of the suspicion about the faceplate).

If I'm not mistaken, it was named "FAC helmet" but I'm not sure.

It's looking suspiciously soft in the face. But I don't know anything about it.

Thanks RBJ.

On their website, it seems that they have MLC and MonCal products...strange.

Its quite reasonable to ask people to prove theyve sculpted something (or photos/info on the helmet they casted) - such is the prevalence of recasts now. The fact that someone is unprepared to do this suggests to me that its simply because they have no proof and its a recast.

This was the problem with the IH. I dont recall any evidence provided (even privately) that it derived from an original helmet thus we could only conclude it had come from the same sources we already knew......

Cheers
