    Thomas B helmet Casts for sale

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    I just got done making a mold of my thomas helmet and figured i would see if anyone is interested in buying casts. I was thinking price would be about $225 for the cast. This would still need to be sanded some filler etc, visor hole, mouth, nose holes cut with a dremel, and painted and visor made.

    It isnt perfect (volpin) but its pretty good, and definitely better than many i have seen.

    This helmet was made for me and im 6'4" so tiny head people may find it a bit roomy

    I may also entertain offers for complete helmets with holes cut, painted, visor installed, led board installed etc, but be aware it will take time as i have a full time job M-F.

    Here are some pictures of the cast:







    And finished pics:









    *Guy Man helmet is a sporgo cast that i finished and assembled the led array for, so thanks to him for that one. Gloves were made from molds from Volpin hand casts and attached to leather gloves

    I think you have a nice helmet there, and for a good price. Definitely one of the better alternatives I have seen. I'd love to see one with a real chrome finish.

    And this picture cracks me up:

    wow, those are some great looking casts! Wish I had the money

    On a side note, can I ask how you casted these? slosh casting or roto-casting?

    Made the mold with smooth-on rebound 25. Shelll with plasticoat, and then slush casted. Tedious process. But as long as you take your time it comes out great.

    I could do another finished one, PM me for details and of course, it will take me a month or so to do.
