The dome base's width was given by the size of the WOF templates. See STEP 1: Pre-assembling the helmet and checking size for more details. I hope I could answer your question here...Nice work!
This is my first time modeling something at this size. So please forgive my questions.
Today I was working on a cardboard mocking up (before I start the polystyrene version).
Now I have some questions.
1. How wide did you make the dome base (after you removed the center material?
In the beginning temporary I used screws to hold the helmet seam together so there was an overlap of the material first.(This step wasn't really important and necessary)2. How did you fuse the helmet's back seam together? I noticed in a few of your photos you had some holes in the back. With my mock up the seam keeps splitting apart and the helmet has lost it's shape.
Later I cut off the overlapping material and glued the seam directly together by using a stripe of styrene material behind the seam. (See STEP 2: Building the main body picture 2.
Thank you very much!Keep up the awesome work.
More will come this weekend - I guess, I am pretty busy right now, sorry you all have to wait so long. I will try to improve myself :oHey, Digifett, any new pics yet?
