    Before I start, I would like to thank perniciousduke. He has greatly helped me through this project so far, and put up with me. I would also like to thank Chernobyl. We all miss you and you have heavily impacted this community, and you still do everyday. Thank you for modeling this helmet for me, and all the other files you have provided to this wonderful community. You are amazing and I hope you never stop pursuing you passion and being yourself.

    Now onto the build. This is going to walkthrough making this helmet, and will also show the process I went through so I can help those that have never done this process, like my self, and would like to try it.

    I started out with printing 21 pieces of cardstock paper out, and individually cutting out every piece. There where close to 90 in total, and I liked to use scissors, but an exact knife seemed to work fine. I preferred the scissors because I thought it was somewhat faster and I didn't have to worry with my hand slipping.

    This game me PTSD and reminded me why I hate pepakura. Cant believe this was fun in first grade 20181121_102008.jpg

    Before gluing the pieces, I recommend tracing over the fold lines with a pen so there are little "ravines" to fold on making it easier and cleaner. Then you align up the tabs and glue them together. I found there are a lot of people that prefer super glue gel, but I just had the regular stuff so j am just going to have to get used to the stuff all over my fingers.

    So I was going to continue with this project and wait to post this thread so I was further in, but I screwed up... I thought I measured my fat noggin correctly and put in the correct measurements, but it ended up being way too big. Like, 1 to 1 scale big... I wanted to keep working on it and hoped it was just fanning out, so when I finished it would be small, but nope. Maybe I'llfinish it and send it to the 343 museum or something... I don't know... 20181123_160411(0).jpg 20181123_160429.jpg


    I may just wait till next week for a new update on this. Was hoping to get it resigned this weekend, but we will see if I am game to start making another one tomorow... I'm kindof disappointed, but at least I'm in the dirt dives club now!

    Well that’s Halo 5 for ya! Guess it’s a rare helmet. Don’t remember the requirements to get it. This is the first attempt I’ve seen at this one.
    xXDashIVXx pep came out good. Hopefully you can find it in yourself to make another. I know I pepped one helmet and the scale was wrong. I never pepped another:(

    I'm sure I'll get to it soon. It's a funny experience but I'll do it. How you get the helmet is 50 hours in custom games... I think I have over 10 days worth in halo 5 alone... wish you got up from customs Cruz I woulda been max rank several times. You can only get the olive helmet from getting your forge map into custom games... I may work on that Next/instead bet we will see :)

    Cool, I do remember it somehow being related to forge one way or another. Guess I won’t be earning my Timmy helmet anytime soon. I’m not much for custom games. About 5 hrs amidst my 12 days of arena and 6 days of war zone.
