Fidgitt-- Rodian mando helmet

Scratchbuild with fiberglass, bondo, and plumbing parts.  The Rodian antennae are sculpted from Sculpey.  I'm still pending on rounded clear domes to go over the flat lenses-- I need to finish drinking the 2 liter of Sun Drop I'll be cutting them from.  :)

It looks realy great :) painting, rust and scratches. But without "cheeks" it doesn't reminde mandalorian buy'ce, especialy at first look. But I'm sure that with the rest of beskar'gam it will looks very well ;)

Yeah, I know the helmet on its own doesn't look terribly Mandalorian-- we do have one reference shot of a Rodian mando from the comics that looks fairly similar to my design, but I did take a few liberties to imagine how a Rodian head might fit in a Mando-style bucket.  My armor is fairly standard so I think it'll read properly when I'm wearing it all together.  :)

I would have loved to see more of a angled side profile instead of it being so flat to account for the snout but, I think the the idea will still come across nicely once the hands are in place as well. I LOVE those antennae!!! 8) Your inspiring me to get back to work on mine!
