    Hi,
    I like to make my own helmet stands, But was fed up with the run of the mill wood type ones. so as i love military items i thought i would make some with a difference, these are made of resin,
    poured into a mould and when dry i like them to look relic ie,
    been there. the stick grnd makes a fine stand and easy to make
    yourself. They look good with all types of helmet.

    Theyre Brilliant, Great Idea! Wolfman73 is right, you could do well selling those, looks like you've got the mould sorted and everything, go for it!! think of a retail price and pop an ad in the Armourer magazine or on Ebay and see how it goes......(Drop me one in the post for the tip. LOL.)

    Cheers

    I am working on these for many years, and still didn't found the right one.
    But aparently people seems to like it, so you better start a production of your idea.
    I am willing to produce the heads of well known soldiers, to put on a mannequin or to be used an helmet stand.
    I am working on the head of Skorzeny at the momment, hoping to be ready before summer of thise year.
    Here is one of my productions, entyerly made of polyester;

    Hi stuka,
    Very nice models, Are they done through the reverse process
    as i have made a Bronze through the Lost wax process for the Tate gallery it seems the same type of thing. the details are
    really clear, what a great idea. Do you sell them as i think you will make a good business out of it.

    Hey Panzer3
    No reverse process or what ever difficult process.
    It is just the exact copy of an helmet I had.Everything as been done without dammaging the original.
    I do sell them, and they make a good business.
    Thise is my business card:

    ever thought about going into films? not as a star but as a props man, ,,,,
    I do from time to time; not an easy world to get in to!!
    also just think, if i sent a picture of myself you could make a head and face like me,,, that would fly of the shelves.....in all directions
    That is possible, I made one on a scale (for a collector)to fit those "Dragon" figures.
