Updated first post

2018


A couple of final shots before the future move-able mannequin is used. Very little has been done since I last posted, so a bit to do still...

2017

The display is about 90% complete, for now. I haven't matched any shots from the movie or taken a great deal of time with the set up. I'll update this thread in the next few months or so when i get an improved pose-able mannequin. :thumbsup

2013

Thomas's thread prompted me to share a small pic of my mask which I painted a few years back. I was intending to post the display but time has been against me with the final completion lately.

Lights, angles etc not exact at all as it was just a rough guide for myself at the time and I've since changed a couple of other things since these pictures. Minus the updates.

2015
These quick test shots were taken early last year for lighting reference, they were never meant to be shown due to the arrangement of parts aligning properly and the shoulder bells not on at that time. Despite the dome tabs snapping and resulting in an odd look, You can see the progression though.

2016

A different dome, a couple of touch ups and different tusks (although placeholders still)

Updated dome flange weathering

Really nice, Paul, I like the black marks on the mask itself and that's something I still need to work on for mine. Looks like you have that left side done really nice. So when you say Darthvaderv ANH, is this your helmet? Or a TM? Or?

Gosh that's beautiful. It looks old, which is kind of what I'd expect if I ran through the secret corners of the LFL archives and accidentally found THE original helmet!

Again, these are old shots a couple of things have changed since this was taken. Thought I'd enclose a colour shot. Not happy with how the light is reflecting in this picture but I had the mannequin under a light system that I've now changed otherwise the scar and dome peak would show how they are instead of hidden somewhat,but I am a fussy one regardless . Oh and what idiot said painting an ANH accurately was easy :hehe-err , jeez forget about the accuracy being on the helmet in the first place you still have to paint the thing properly.

I love it Paul. It looks like a screen shot. Very well done mate. I'm impressed and I don't say that too often. :thumbsup

And you are correct, it's one thing to try and be accurate and a whole other process just to get things done properly. All displays resemble vader, but it's how you go about making it actually LOOK like vader. If you follow what I'm saying. :hehe-err
