Ok, I tried the batting helmet approach, and messed up the dome big time. I followed WoF's templates, but screwed up on putting the 4 quarters together. Totally my fault, the templates are awesome, and I reprinted them to try again, good work WoF
So I got to thinking....DANGER..DANGER... I know thinking can be bad, at least where I work it can be. I was watching Dallas SWAT, and started to really look at the helmet shape, and was wondering if I would be able to use that. The shape looks somewhat there for the dome, and the one I got from a friend is made from ABS. It is a replica of the actual helmets he uses for paintball and airsoft. What I am wondering is, could I use this helmet as is, without cutting it up, or should I cut the top of the dome of, and use that portion only. I have some pics, and I am hopefully going to succeed in posting them here.
Any help or info on this would be very helpful. Also if you know of a different helmet, please let me know. I have already made the ear pieces, and have all the rest cut out just waiting for a dome.
