    Halo Medals Project

    Each one takes a few days to get the intial rough cuts and clay done, depends on the complexity of the design.

    Halo Medals Project

    I just wanted to share my new project with the members here. Halo related stuff is not much appreciated on some of the other forums I frequent. I started making these at the request of a friend and I have decided to do the entire line. I make the originals using hand cut plastic sheeting, clay...

    All My Pepakura Files and 3D Models Have Been Removed

    I completely feel your pain on this issue. Since completing my DP helmet and selling some kits I have been assailed quite regularly by people requesting complete helmets for absurdly low prices. I can only imagine what Volpin goes through! My usual solution has been to simply name a price (make...

    Reach Emile Build *updates W/pics!*

    Your idea about casting the visor from clear resin is one that I considered myself because there are so many difficulties with making a visor this shape. The visor on this helmet is quite similar to the one on my daft punk Guy helmet. I could find no reasonable way to cast a visor from that...

    Finished Recon Helmet

    It looks very good well done. What kind of paint or coating is that?

    Daft Punk Helmet Wip

    I am using a kitchen floor special that I built from wood. Basically a wooden box with a a bunch of holes drilled in the top. I have two vacuum sources one is a shop vac and the other is a RobinAir vacuum pump meant for AC systems. This makes it a sort of two stage system where the shop vac...

    Daft Punk Helmet Wip

    Though some may have thought this project abandoned I have returned to it now. I have improved my vacuum former and I have made my first PETG visor. It came out great. The visor has been the most difficult section of this project. Judging whether the proper plastic temperature has been reached...

    3D Modellers Help Needed

    I cant thank you enough you have really saved me a lot of work. Its likely that I will stick with a two wheel streamliner for now to simplify construction and minimize weight but this is an excellent head start. Thanks again :)

    3D Modellers Help Needed

    This has nothing to do with armor building its a much different project I'm working on. I'm working out plans for a streamliner fairing and I want to build a fairing similar to the quests body style but maybe not so blunt up front. I want to have a 3D model of it but I'm not sure how to proceed...

    3D Modellers Help Needed

    I need some advice from someone who has experience converting 2D images into a 3D render. I have multiple detailed photos of the object I wish to model available but I'm not sure what the best tools are to use for such a task.

    Daft Punk Helmet Wip

    A small update. I managed to make a visor which is good enough for testing and display. I'm working on making some changes to my vac former before I make any more. Sorry these pics don't measure up to my others because I don't have my quality camera right now.

    Daft Punk Helmet Wip

    Thanks for the compliment Derkraken. I could not have done this without your extremely helpful photos and tips. This helmet has been very challenging to build. I had some problems and an accident which resulted in my casts not being as smooth and finished as I had hoped so they will require hand...

    Daft Punk Helmet Wip

    I have a vacuum former which will be used to shape clear PET sheet. A cutout visor from a cast is being used for the buck. As for the circuit design I will add that when I find the time to do so.
