    Any idea how to fix it ?.
    How could straighten out around the ears ?
    A helmet made of lightweight PVC 2 mm and ears made of the resin.
    I thought of the unfolded state in hot water but I fear that the whole shape of the helmet can bend

    I would use some bondo to fill the gaps between the ears and the helmet. Then sand it smooth and primer it. Have a look where to tweak a bit and if you like insert a fine small line that normally is between the ears and the helmet.

    That´s what I would do. Hope it helps brother.

    :-)

    I've come across this before, heat the ear up and shape it to the helmet. Once it is painted, you will never notice it.

    BF helmet, unfortunately this did not come out. I will try to be more careful next time.
