it sorta fits on my head but i have to push the helmet outwards so that i can fit my head in and i've alread cut alot of paper away i fear if i cut to much it won't look like a spartan helmet anymore any suggestions?
CrAzY CH13F said:i scaled mine up to 25.049790 cm but if i didn't add 3 inches to the calculation it would be 23.991340 and would not fit at all.
this is how much i trimmed away.
if it comes to it il have to resize and re do it all over =[
FirePhoenix NL said:lol mine is 27cm (that sounds pervish lol), but i would redo it and take some extra space too, because you still need to fibreglass it which also means that it takes up the inside space.
this time if you feel like it, use Flying Squirl's or Syflo's Files for a much more detailed helmet... anyways that's your decision
CrAzY CH13F said:where would i find these files and also are they similar today i just ruined my last helmet cs my mum wore it and couldn't get it off so it ripped and anyway might was well start off a new, can you also provide a scaling thread?
The files are much more detailed but are waaaaaay harder to make imho... the Halo 2 version has 250 folds orso well this one has 900 ><
CrAzY CH13F said:so should i stick with the same helmet i made or the more detailed one? because i know i have to scale up the old one up abit more.
FirePhoenix NL said:depends on what you want, do you want alot detail and therefore invest more time in it or do you want a quick yet still nice helmet?
CrAzY CH13F said:i think i will go with less detail but then again if i bondo or use some other alternative then i can maybe shape it to be rounder or would it just save time doing the detail one so i wouldn't have to bondo much?
yes imho, and yep you take them out once you start doing the fibreglassCrAzY CH13F said:so in the long run a detailed one is best halo 3 version or halo 2?, also the support struts when i resin the outside and its dried i take the struts out right?
CrAzY CH13F said:i had a problem on the helmet i just nearly did, i did the top and bottom parts seperately i found it really difficult to go the 2 pieces together, will i have that some problem on the detailed one or how should i construct it in steps part to part?
preferably i would like to make an ODST Halo 3 helmet because they look Bad ***
