405th Regiment Officer
Congrats on the promotion! Good job, many accolades.
Your fingers hurt just from thinking about it.......How do you think I feel? I'm the one doing it......arthritis and all........joking about the arthritis......but it does take a long time for me to finish 1 piece. Thanks for the compliment.

If I may give my humble opinion....I would definitely recommend printing the helemet. I just finished mine on my printer and am super happy with it. Took almost a week to print but was worth not having to fight with pep (or foam in my case). That said, I'm not great at accuracy and details with pep and foam but I want all the details....not a great combo without a 3D printer lolI'll have my new 3D printer!!!!! And then start printing out my sniper rifle. That would take a world of pressure off of me because I am really dreading the building of the Argus helmet......and I'm thinking of doing it in 3D....... The test piece will be the prop first.
I did just finish printing it. It isn't an Argus, it's a CQC modeled for me by the wonderful MoeSizzlac
That looks like a nightmare to post process if it was printed like that :OJust cause it's fun...

Of course that isn't really printable at the moment. All I could find was a pdo which was really low res, and this which is the game asset and isn't hollow for a head.
That's 15 inches from left to right, 14 from front to back and 15 top to bottom. So it's rather large haha
Oh for sure.MoeSizzlac has this in the 3D thread and said that it wasn't ready for printing and needed a ton of TLC to get it print ready......TLC I have no knowledge of how to do.....yet. But remember James, the size indicated includes the mounted cameras....those add a lot of inches to the helmet so I might not bee that large.....in fact, it might be tight for an average size head or just fitting.......only measuring from the side of the helmet body and not the cameras will determine the correct scale to build at.....at least that is what I told myself when I printed out my templates......
Oh yeah. A lot of intersecting faces, non-manifold edges, a lot of asymmetry. It would probably take me twice the time to get nice and right as opposed to a normal helmet.
