Problem is that the size of the helmet is based upon the outside shell. How the inside fits to your head will have a lot more to do with what you use to reinforce it and what padding you put in, etc....

Head measurements make it hard to scale a helmet to you. However, I believe Fraz said that the origional model was scaled to 7'2" tall. So if you tell me how tall you are in inches, we should be able to rescale the size of the model so that it is designed for your overall frame, which may help more.

Sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear, but I think it's just too hard to size a helmet off the info you gave.

I rescaled mine to my height and found that it is barely big enough to fit over my head. Although height isn't the only determining factor for your head. You could try measuring to your chin, and then minus that from your height, then do the same for MC and find the scaling size.

Or just use an assembled height from the standards in the Helmet Types and Comparisons thread in Molded Armor.

Unfold it then in the 2d options tab select ScaleUp/Down Development by Specifying value

Should also be in the tutorial.

Or another way is to measure your chest. And use the assembled size option to work out the scale of the chest peices. Then use the same scale on the helmet.

Theory being, If the chest and helmet are the same scale it won't look too small or too big.

ok, if u scaled yours down to 20%, then i probably have to redo my helmet too cause it wont obviously fit me cause i didnt re-scale the helmet. Oh well, ill just give my old helmet to my older bro. :roll:
