Going through old photos, found these bio helmets I was pretty pleased with when I made them
first up pred p1 the best pred look, I made this from cold cast aluminium so it has a real metal feel
Image
i decided to make an interior for it which is never seen onscreen, had fun, basically got a bunch of greeblies and placed them inside in what I thought looked good, has kit parts from the Jupiter 2 kit from the modern lost in space movie plus other stuff
Image
Image
next up a bio from AVP never finished this one i sold it on without adding the lenses which the customer wanted to do,
Image
finally another favourite the wolf bio from the second avp movie, loved the design on this one
