Far, far from finished (I've only just pulled this cast today) but here are a couple of work in progress pics of my full size fibreglass reproduction 'Steed's face Molding Mask' from They Keep KIlling Steed.



With so many of the original Avengers props presumably destroyed or lost, I thought it would be interesting and worthwhile to reproduce them as accurately and in as good a quality as possible Smile

That's kind thanks, it'll be fun filling the back of it with expanding foam Wink Hopefully it'll be finished later this week. I have The Winged Avenger and Cybernaut heads on the go in the work shop too Smile

Excess foam trimmed, I applied the first layer of top coat paint today. I'll make the final top coat lighter to reflect the original face mold props silver/aluminium appearance.

That is really, really impressive! I wish I had your skills and could make my own. I'd love to pop one on and go down the pub and see people's reaction.

You're kind thanks. It's not hard, you just need a little patience and lots of old cardboard Smile It turned out pretty well all things considered.
