Absolutely. I just didn't want to prime it before I had worked on the separation line, to avoid getting the layers too thick. However, I can still make out the area where the mold line is, so I will have to do another pass with the filler. And I was surprised at how smooth the primer went on there...

The plans for the SFS is to paint it up and see if I am capable of doing as good a job as the mold maker.

Carsten, did you ever pursue the 1/6 scaled helmet ? I've been looking at my figures and was thinking that the "imposter" helmets need to go badly ! :lol

One printed, two to go. Just don't have the money for the printing session. None of the stuff I have up for sale to fund that printing session is selling... so this is going to take a very long time - also because of other reasons. Sorry for the downer news.

Thanks for the offer, but I prefer to do this using my own funds - just have to raise the money and get this done.

But... If all goes well the next printing session will hopefully happen before the summer vacation and we'll probably have the ESB Vader armor kits ready before then too... and then the ANH armor kit will come later.

I know that you're busy with reallife and other project, but any news about the 4 parts SFS helmet? Did you try to complete it as a finished helmet?

I haven't kept tabs on the 4-part helmet, sadly. I don't know if it has been worked on more and finished and ready, but I can check. Everything has just been rather chaotic.

Well, it is the mold maker working on that, so it may have moved forward. I just forgot to check up on it because I had so many other things on my mind, but now that I'm feeling a tad bit better again I'll try to check up on the status of stuff.
