PROMETHEUS & ALIEN Lifesize ENGINEER/SPACE JOCKEY Helmet project!!!!
SPACE JOCKEY KIT FORM - Rotocast urethane/fiberglass matrix hollow-cast helmet shell + 2 lenses.
There is an **ALTERNATE** version of this kit (thermal formed). Click link to see this version:

The sculpting team on this one: Tyler C. and Cris A.
DOZENS of sweat-filled hours of hardcore labor and many many hundreds of dollars later, we have a lightweight casting ready for trimming and paiting!!
The space jockey helmet weighs about 9 pounds of a fiberglass/resin matrix, and measures 22" long, 15" tall.
THERE ARE TWO SPACE JOCKEY VERSIONS. The first is unweathered and newish looking. The other version is old, decayed, battered. Here's the first buildup of the DECAYED & un-decayed version:
