    Who on this board would I talk to about getting a custom head made to replace the one on my custom Jazz?

    Sculpt-bot is really awesome at custom heads. I've seen many of his work, and, it's top-notch stuff. I personally plan to be going to him for some custum heads for so me of my kitbashes too here in the future.

    PM him. Here's a link to his Public Profile- http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/member.php?u=45601. As for cost, I'm not sure. It all depends on how big the custom head will be, and how complex it will be.

    I know that he usually sets the smaller heads at $20, more medium ones to large ones are probably like $25+up im am guessing

    Huh....I thought he sold them for cheaper than that. Then again, I haven't dealt with him yet, so, I'm not exactly the best person for info.

    Ebay:
    If I do work for you and it is a one of a kind item that will not be reproduced or may not have a large amount of folks that would want a casting of (a custom character for example) the charge usually runs between $20-$25. I can recoup my time and materials more for heads that others will want, because I can sell casts of them. These will run $10 a pop (price went up a dollar since postage rates went up.) As was said though, it all depends on the size and complexity of the project. One offs cost more because they are the only ones and I am dedicating about 8-10 hours of time on the one piece that will not be reproduced. Hope this helps, and feel free to PM me if anyone has more questions.

    Ok, now my memory makes more sense. I remember hearing about the cheaper price about some of your more popular Alternator heads.
