    I plan to paint it in the ESB scheme. I'm doing the rest of my armor in metal also. I have threads on those too.

    Let's see... I practically sliced a knuckle off my left hand in December working on metakl guantlets and I sliced the palm of my left hand this weekend! I just need to keep peroxide and bacitracin on hand!

    Thanks for looking!

    Re: Metal Helmet Using WOF Templates...Update! 3/11/09

    I worked on the cheeks and cut some of the visor out. I also gave it a rough sanding to debur it. (and give it a worn look) I bought some fiberglass cloth and resin too. This will definitely have to be reinforced. I may tackle that Friday.

    So tell me about the shape. I know its not perfect but hopefully I can correct it before I glass it. I will also use JB Weld to close the seams on the outside. It sands to a grey finish and won't detract to much from the metal color.

    Thanks!

    Bump... any comments on the shape? Thanks!

    Re: Metal Helmet Using WOF Templates

    None on the shape. I don't know quite enough about that yet, and am still in the "measuring twice" phase of my own steel helmets. But I did want to offer one of these as something you might want to use to fill seams and shape edges.

    Re: Metal Helmet Using WOF Templates

    I will be using JB Quick to fill in the seams. When it gets sanded it looks a light gray color. I've actualy started doing that already. Maybe by Monday I will have that done and the interior fiberglassed. Thanks!

    That seems as though it might be heavy?

    Looks like either 20-22gu aluminum or sheet metal, so probably not that heavy at all.

    If it were stainless then that would be heavy. Glassing it is going to give it some weight for sure.

    All in all not a bad job at all. the WOF templates are great, but I've never cared much for the dome because it always seems a bit to steep.

    It is not heavy. Its 19 guage aluminum. It will be heavier once its glassed. I have not updated yet. I am in the middle of making the ears out of the same aluminim. I have the basic shapes of the right side and rangefinder cover. They will have to be smoothed down a bit though. Thanks for looking!

    Re: Metal Helmet Using WOF Templates

    just curious, why do you need to glass it? I would think a little hammer work and some bondo would do the trick.
    Looks great by the way.
