I'm not "Liking" this just on principal.......DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY HELMETS I WOULD HAVE HAD TO FINISH JUST TO HAVE 1 USABLE HELMET......????!?
Haha yeah helmets can be tricky! This third one is coming together really well. All I can say is measure measure measure and when you think you have measured enough, measure again. I use the point to point measuring tool in pepakura like my life depends on it when building these pieces especially the helmet! Its so easy just to "assemble" pieces and it not come out looking right cause they werent assmbled correctly like the 3d model in pep. Also I started using temporary braces inside the helmet during assembly to hold the curve and the measurements in place. I've noticed heat curved foam can grow back out as much as an inch over night just sitting but you wouldn't know it just looking at it. I've got the whole inside braced up and once everything is permanent with shoe goo, the braces will get cut out. Good news is my second helmet I've been using till now fits my wife perfect, she will be using my spare pieces as a second suit that's going to be painted purple.
