    My cardboard Boba helmet

    Hey guys,

    I just barely joined this forum and, Im not to sure how to navigate through it right now, but I just wanted to show off a helmet that me and a friend of mine made.














    We made it from the wizard of flight templates.

    Nice. Did you use the wedge-construction technique for the dome, or did you find yourself a batting or skater helmet? Either way the shape came out nice. Do you have any close-up pics of the earpieces and the rangefinder and stuff?

    I used the wedge technique, but to make it more durable and smooth, I put a layer of bondo on it and sanded it. I'll take some pics of the ear peices and post them soon.

    Heres the pics of the earpieces, I hope you can see them good enough.

    I can see 'em just fine, and they look great. Nicely constructed. Is the rangefinder arm also cardboard?

    Yep, the arm is cardboard too, its three layers of cardboard so that it dosnt bend, and so that it fits inside of the ear without wobbling around.

    Thanks.

    Great job! My only critique is that your LEDs on the RF topper are in the wrong place...



    they should be over more:


    I only mention it because it's a minor enough thing that if you wanted to change it, it should be fairly easy.

    Oops! Thanks for telling me, I'll have to try and change them.
