    Wondering if anyone has suggestions for a cheap interior for my bucket. Its a scratchbuild using WOF templates. Screen accuracy is not that vital to me, just looking for something cheap to keep the bucket secure on my head.

    If your goal is not necessary to be screen accurate, then you can go with foam (which in some cases is screen accurate). I padded my WOF helmet with an used pair of jeans posted here Helmet Padding And T-visor Mount.

    For my first helmet I just went to home depot and bought a hard hat with a removable liner and it worked great.

    For a helmet I made years ago I went to a $2 store and got a foam kick board (for learning to swim) and cut a few strips out and glued them in to the helmet and they worked great

    You could definitely go with foam and a spray adhesive. Cheap and very effective. I love Rafal's used denim idea! I should raid my wife's underwear drawer and have me some frilly padding!
