    Nov 1, 2005, 12:57 PM - Brow height question? #1

    Hi guys,

    I have a question about the brow height. (I think that's what it's called. The reddish band going around the bottom of the dome...)

    Anyway, I need to scratch build my bucket. I'm afraid I won't be able to fit my melon in any of the fantastic buckets available. I'd hate to drop the cash and find out I was right...

    I'm busy working up all my ratios to start building templates. I just need one dimension that is generally agreed upon to scale everything. I figure the brow might be an easy choice.

    So how 'bout it? What is the height of the brow from top to bottom???

    Thanks,

    Eric

    I don;t mean to be rude here... but hm... if you can;t fit your head inside a Bobamaker... are you sure you're human? it's freakin huge!!

    what about the MLC 1 ? that is even bigger I believe...

    but!!!
    scratch building.. whatever the reason... is more rewarding!!

    why's you want to know sizes anyway... from buckets that you think won;t fit you?

    Excalibur,

    If I'm reading this right, is that saying the brow is 11mm from top to bottom? I've looked at that a dozen times an never noticed that entry...

    R_boba,

    I wear a 7 3/4 fitted ball cap. I'm almost 6 1/2 feet tall. I've got a big skull. If I had access to a BM or MLC, I'd LOVE to try one on for size, but like I said, I can't afford to drop $200 on a bucket to find out I can't wear it.

    Ronin,

    I got you beat! Using a flexible tape, I'm looking at roughly 62" around my forehead.

    Chris' illustration lists the circumference w/out left ear at 724mm. My question is, what circumference? Is that at the brow line? If not, that's the measurement I really need.

    How 'bout any of you folks out there with large buckets. What is the circumference of your helmet at the brow without the ears???

    Thanks!

    Eric

    Thanks Ronin. It might not help, but it's a curiosity thing!
