New pics of my helmet ** New helmets on page 9**

Somebody wanted some better pics of my completed helmet, so I recently shot some new ones. It seemed kinda a waste just to send to one person, so I thought I'd share them with everybody. Maybe they'll be useful for reference. Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

Enjoy.

Thanks everybody, I thought you'd like to see the helmet now that I've got everything the way I want it.

The helmet if made of fiberglass re-inforced fabricated polystyrene sheet. So I cut my patterns out of 1/8" plastic sheet, assembled them and fiberglassed it from the interior.

I hadn't thought about doing a tutorial just for the helmet... the full tutorial has been stck at about 40% done for the last 4 months or so. Now that I have my computer back from the shop I should be able to make some more progress.

All props for the visor go to Blue Realm. He's the originator of the dual layer style visor, and deserves all credit for being the first to do this and popularize it. I had thought about it, but I didn't have the guts to cut into a gold visor until I saw that someone else had done it. BTW, the tutorial will cover this now. I documented that when I did it, so I'll throw it in there.

Weathering? I think u should

Me too. Just haven't gotten to it yet.

My original plan was to let the armor scuff and scrape naturally, but it's taking forever. So I will be working on that through the summer.
