Here you will find the wizardofflight (WOF) Templates !!!! http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=10497
What's the best way to make a scratch build helmet using the WOF templates? I don't really know!
This is way how I did it.
In this thread I try to show my way as much detailed as I can,
that’s the reason why I will call this a scratch build tutorial. During building this bucket I’ve learned a lot. So don't wonder when I start first this way and later on
I changed to a -maybe- better way :o
This is how the helmet looks now !! Update Sept. 29th '07
Don't wonder about the funny shaped dome again, its just a 3D template for a new free formed kneaded dome. Later I will explain much more about the procedure.
This is how my Helmet looked in July'07:
In August'07 the bucket was looking like this, do you see the differences ??
A little bit like a trashcan !!!
As I got my TDH reference CDs (I ordered them way too late), I recognized that the shape of the dome I built wasn't really good.(Alan's - WOF - dome template is very good !!) So I chopped it off, man I felt so terrible !!
A little bit about me: I have a very nice wife and 2 and half super cute kids :-) and also a very liable job,
I am a kind of professional model maker, but usually I work in digital space only. Before I did
some scratch building, but most of the time with metal. So please don't be impatiently when I cannot
answer questions you may have right away, it may take some time...
Also I come from Germany so for many TDH members I live halve a day ahead :-)
How it all began:
I was looking for Boba Fett reference material in the internet to build a detailed digital Fett helmet.
Later from this digital version I wanted to build the real lid. I already had a plan how to do it.
But then I found this forum here, and those wonderful helmet templates from Alan !
So I changed my building plans. Inspired by the very nice bucket creation of SD68 I started my own one.
Only the new (2nd) dome I still want to build in my earlier planned way, but this will come later on...
This forum is so GREAT, and you guys here are so crazy !!! Like me !!
To build my helmet I use those tools
