    Helmet Stencils

    Hey everyone,
    Just curious if anyone has taken Rafal's ESB helmet templates and made them fit a budget Asok? I could really use some help with this as I'm pretty bad with free handing :P

    Any help is appreciated!
    Thanks!!

    If you have a Photoshop-type program, you can resize the stencils any way you want to.
    You may have to go through a couple of trial-and-error steps until you get them to the
    size you want to, but with a little tweaking, you can get them there.

    Thanks for the site F4R! I'll give it a shot!

    I recommend using a 'skew' approach. I don't think you'll get a great fit by simply resizing using only vertical and horizontal changes. It took me several tries to get right, but the skew function ensured a 100% perfect fit.

    I may have the .psd files I used for the Asok back plates. I might be able to post them to a file sharing site or something for you.

    Yeh a skewing will for sure be needed to get perfect fitment. You can do that with the transform tool

    Sorry, I ended up only saving the right backplate for the Asok budget helmets...

    It's an 8-1/2x11 size paper. I printed it with no enlarging or shrinking.

    I'm still working on the backplates of both of my helmets right now, after a hiatus on painting. When I finish and move onto other parts of the helmet, I'll post rezised templates for the Asok Budget helmet, as I move onto each part. I'm doing the same for the FPH2 helmet stencils, if anyone's interested.
