Last Spring, I talked the guys from www.wegottafindearth.com into letting me work on their Viper pilot helmet mold. It was in pretty fair shape but needed some cleanup before they could attempt to do a vacuform pull of it. Well, I got it and kept it most of the summer. Thinking I was going to finish my vacuform machine up before returning the mold to them. [And get a pull or two in the prcocess.] Well, that didn't happen. Oh well, I did manage to make some good detailed measurements and I hope to soon be able to get started working on a scratch build mold. The above images are the final mold that I cleaned up. Unfortunately, there were quite a few soft spots in the resin, and when it was pulled, parts of the helmet did not like it. Now the helmet has to be reworked, once again.
Project status: vacuform table is finished.
Project finish date: Fall 2004/Spring 2005
Request kit source. If anyone has a kit, or parts of a helmet for sale, or information regarding the BSG viper helmet, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks
