    Helmet size

    Hi all,
    I have decided to try and make my first scratch build helmet.
    Im using the WOF templates I downloaded and am following the great tutorial by digifett.
    I thought as Ive never done anything like this before Id make a cardboard prototype to familiarize myself with the templates.
    I thought this would be good for two main reasons, the first is that if I make any silly mistakes with the templates it will be easier/cheaper to rectify rather than if Id used polystyrene or some such.
    The second and main reason was that I wanted to check that the size of the helmet would be ok for me.
    Ive completed my prototype, it fits fine and the proportions seem ok to me but I thought Id get the experts opinion on it so below are some pictures:-

    Id appreciate any comments or opinions.

    Re: Helmet size

    Anyone have an opinion on the sizing?
    I'm reluctant to start on the proper build until I have some expert advise.

    Looks good to me proportion-wise.
    As far as the actual size goes, I have an FPH helmet and it measures 10 1/4" (258mm) from side to side at the "ear flats."

    Looks good, but I'd probably make it just a tad bigger. I feel as if it's a little short for your build
