    My first helmet

    Well, I just received my first helmet today. It was a purchase from ebay.

    Overall it looks good, I have some work ahead of me to get it perfect but hey what do you expect from this hobby. I will have pictures later. Im not sure who the original maker is. Maybe some of you can help me.

    So i checked it over today on my lunch break and almost everything is the same size as WOF's templates.

    :Things that are different from WOF's templates:

    Its overall height from the dome down is a little shorter.
    the ear pieces are smaller width and height wise.
    the section that the ears attach to is smaller width and height wise.

    now I have a question about this. Should i make the ears and things bigger like WOF's templates or should i just leave them as they are?

    any ideas? I need help deciding which ears to use. I will get pictures of the ears that came with it on the helmet to compare and see what looks better.
