Fan Made - Imperial Snowtrooper (ESB)


Michel and Joerg from Germany have sent me these pics of their excellent Snowtrooper Helmets and Costumes. They used 3mm thick high-gloss ABS. The helmet was vac formed on a self-made table.

The original mold we cast off came in two parts (dome and backdside). they made one plaster forms and connected both to one mold. A small amount of cleaning up and finishing to get as close as possible on the reference shots of the original ones. The stripe around the dome was added later and they used double-layered green metallic foil for the lenses. 

The apron was made from white blanket you normally use for truck-trailers. So it's very thick and resistant. The weathering was made by water based mix of black and brown color.

Well this is the first fan-made snowy on StarWarsHelmets.com and I have to say that I'm extremely impressed with Michel and Joergs work - a credit to the German Garrison!

In addition, SSProps in Italy has also produced a superb looking Snowtrooper.....

I understand they've spent a lot of time perfecting  the costume, but having done so they've produced something that is really accurate. The backpack below also looks spot-on.

Excellent looking product, and below shown as a composite using an original frame from the movie.
