    Helmet Card Mock Up Pics?

    I am trying to help a friend get a decent Jango helmet done for his son. I remembered seeing THIS thread about a cardboard mock up as a geometric frame, but it seems that all the pictures are gone.

    Does anyone have them?

    Thanks

    I actually just built one of these with some extra foam board. I used WOF's templates. I'm scratchbuilding a wearable helmet now, but the foam board one I'll probably try to make a mold of the same way MLC did it.

    Good luck with the helmet!

    Thanks for the link, I think some of those were the ones I was looking for.

    Do you have a link for WOF's templates?

    And does anyone know if you would use a plaster and release agent right on that cardboard for molding?

    Thanks again.

    Here's WOF's templates:

    Here's MLC's gallery which has the pictures from TK560's site plus a bunch more on molding it:

    From the pictures it looks like the helmet was molded straight from the cardboard helmet.

    EDIT:

    Here's the gallery with the molding process pictures:
