NEW CYLON ARMOR AVAILABLE

Post by actias » Sun Jan 08, 2017 3:00 pm

From this post: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1507&p=17200#p17200 If you are interested in one of these helmet kits PM or email me at celica621@Juno.com. These are FIRST GENERATION and directly off a screen used original Cylon. I have several right now. This particular Cylon was obtained in the early 80's and this specific helmet has never been offered before. I will offer all the armor to this Cylon once I have sold a few helmets. THE HELMET AND RESIN PARTS ARE EXTRORDINARILY CLEAN! It's not bumpy, it's high gloss ABS (Like the high quality Stormtrooper kits out there) and is ready to chrome, once you build it. You wont have to spend hours smoothing out the surface. IT'S VERY STURDY! It will come with some templates and instructions so you can space the resin visor and mouth vent properly. The helmets are made from A.090 ABS plastic - like the original (Not styrene that others use). This is the real deal. $149.00 plus $12.00 S&H within the USA mainland.

Just saw this helmet on the bay, so came here to check out its provenance, very interesting... May make an offer on one, no need for a suit, just the helmet.

So the parts are from bucks from universal armourer, or are they skins that you have to turn into formable bucks? , which would be another generation away. Either way. Cool kit.

These were bucks made from an original set of armor. I just had to transfer them from stone to tooling resin (non shrinking) so that they would stand up to the heat of vacuum forming. The test build in the photos is of one of the actual kits. When completed the helmet is rock solid - like the high quality stormtrooper buckets out there. By the way the first few of these are pulled off the stone master buck and not the tooling resin buck.

It's when you are laughing at something corny or silly and you slap your knee once while laughing. Hence knee slapper. It's a little sarcastic.

Oh! Oops I thought you were making a funny by saying stone buck instead of Starbuck because of the pilot helmet emoji!
