bmx potty + filler = helmet?

    bmx potty + filler = helmet?

    seeing as i've been scouring this awsome site for info, pictures and tips over the last three months, i think its only fair i offer up my efforts for you guys to rate. This helmet is based around a found bmx helmet that loosely resembles the MSH dimensions, the construction uses 2mm plastic card and car body filler + many hours! I'm going to cast in resin and fibre glass with an aluminium filler, the idea being to polish to a shiny finish and then layer paints. i would be greatfull of any feedback/critisism before i go to cast it......

    Tell me you did not scratchbuild that. You're joking right? :P

    If you did in fact make that yourself that is fan-friggin-tastic!! All you scratchbuilders are doing amazing work lately, I'm very envious of the skill you have to build an entire helmet.

    You made that in 3 months?!?

    Got any work-in-progress pics? I'd be highly interested in seeing how it came together.

    The only possible, tiny, insignificant thing I could mention would be the line I've highlighted below. I believe it's supposed to be vertical, rather than angled in as you made it.

    The dent looks strikingly similar to my MSH2 dent. It also has the same wavy brow as my MSH2. I would be very intrested in seeing progress pics.

    Really? I thought it looked more like the BM helmet dent and brow.

    Perhaps, I am not looking at my MSH2 right now, but that is what I thought of the moment I saw it. I forgot BM's dent was textured like that also. But since he mentioned that his helmet was close in measurment to a MSH that is what made me think of that.

    Some "how it was made pic's" would be a great thing to provide now...

    Just looking at some comparison pic's of both TF and BM buckets and there are lots of minor differences...
    but some very strong simularitys also...

    I have adjusted the background to be black on TF's pic.
    I have filled in a grey visor area on BM's pic.
    I have slightly resized the TF pic down smaller.
    I have rotated TF pic by about 2 degree's to match the angles.



    Its the wavy brow that seemed to stand out the most to me, so i just had to play around and see how close they really matched...


    Then...
    I used Photoshop's "magic wand" to highlight an area on the front of TF's bucket and "moved" it across onto the BM bucket....

    well it fits very well and its very similar to say the least...( i have a picture that shows this but wont post it yet so i dont seem like a pitchfolk weilding villager..)

    Now im not trying to start anything here, heck....
    I still remember the days of BM being dragged across the coals way back when he first bought out his bucket for show-and-tell...

    im just agreeing with above comments that some progress pics might be a wise idea...

    surely, if the top is a BMX POTTY helmet then lets just see the inside of the bucket?...

    Proof-positive of an original scratcher if the POTTY's visible there, aint it?...

    3 months to build that?!? Man it took me that long to just put a paintjob on mine, that I only consider better than average
