    Sep 24, 2014, 3:06 AM - ears using wof templates #1

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and to building helmets as well. My 4 year old wants to be Boba Fett for Halloween and what mother could say no to that? So here I am, reading on this forum for hours learning how to scratch build him a helmet. I am using the WOF templates and so far so good. I am just now starting to assemble the ears and I am a little confused. I think I know how they go together, but I am hesitant to cut and glue after all the work I have put into just cutting them out. Is there a step by step on assembling the ears from WOF templates? If so, please point me in the right direction. I will go work on my 8 year olds storm trooper helmet while waiting for a reply

    First, welcome to the community! I don't know if there's a tutorial for just the ears, but Antman's helmet tutorial (using the WOF templates) includes tips and guidelines for the ears.
    Here's the thread, http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/a...h-build-24821/
    As with anything, there's many different ways to go about it. Whatever works best for you and as always have fun!

    Thanks mcfarlj3! I did check out antman's tutorial. It was immensely helpful and the only reason why the helmet looks like it is supposed to at this point From what I can tell he deviated from the template and did something different with the ears. He layered them instead of them being hollow...I think. I would just go with what Antman did because there is a tutorial, but before I checked out his tutorial I already cut out all the little shapes and plus I don't have enough poster board left to do it his way. I don't want to buy another sheet as it's super expensive in Alaska. That is why I was hoping somebody followed the WOF templates way and laid it out for newbies like me. Thanks again for the reply!!

    Another option is using craft foam for the ears from hobby lobby or somewhere...or even foam core...

    This thread is more of a WIP rather than tutorial and he is using the Raf templates, but maybe the pictures will help. It's been helpful for me at least.
