    New Helmet Templates WIP.

    Morning guys and gals,

    I've been busy lately modelling various components of the Fett gear in 3D, I've also just completed the helmet!

    Beacause my background lies in papermodelling, I thought I'd do these but using 3D models and Pepakura to unfold them. I'm not trying to out-do Alans work or anything, I think his stuff is amazing. I just wanted to try it my way. Actually, all of the Fett stuff I've been working on has been based on WoF blueprints so they'll be very similar.

    Anyway, for the helmet, I've done the bucket and both ear pieces. I've not done the RF.

    I hope you guys like it and I hope to have it unfolded and ready for release soon along with my jet pack, rocket pack, and gauntlets.

    Here's a pick of the helmet:

    Thanks for looking.

    EDIT/UPDATE!!

    I have done both a Letter and A4 version of the PDO file.

    Fett HelmetA4.zip

    Fett Helmet Letter.zip

    You'll need Pepakura Viewer to print them as they are, or Pepakura Designer to rescale them before printing. Those can be found here: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/

    Hope you guys like the finished thing and have fun!!!

    So when am I gonna come by your house and shake your hand!! You are truly awesome buddy...especially how you seperated the ears. Now I can go and make that custom helmet with 2 RF.

    LOL...Skip nice job but where is the D/L!!

    Hey buddy!

    You're at fault for this you know!!! I was going to be doing the Biker Scout until I spoke to you regarding Mando stuff! LOL!

    Yeah, I didn't want to model the ears as one with the helmet. This way it can all be done seperately and then added at the end. Or, customise it with two RFs like you mentioned or some sort of Macro Binocular (like the RotS clones) set-up or something. Whatever people wanted to do really.

    The DL? Sorry, I've only just finished modelling this one this morning, so it's not been unfolded yet. Today is a day off since the wife is home and ill so I need to be around there. I'm hoping that tonight and tomorrow I'll be able to offer the download of the helmet and Jango Arena pack. I hope!!

    I'm glad you like it though, thanks for the compliment!!

    Also, since talking to you about custom Mandos, I've dug out my sketching stuff this morning to try some ideas I had lastnight for some Mando "heavy" armor. So Look out for that too at some point.

    Hey,

    I know I said that I'd hoped to have got the helmet ready for download by now. Sorry, but it's not ready yet. My brother invited me to a BBQ so I ended up being out all day yesterday, then way too tired when I got back.

    I'll see what I can get done today.

    Re: New Helmet Templates WIP.

    Thanks very much. I've done most of the unfolding now. However, it's a lovely day here so I've been out in the garden all day. So, it's not quite finished yet.

    Thanks guys. I'm hoping to get the Jango jet pack ready to release in tandem with the helmet. I'm hopeful that both will be ready tonight.

    Re: New Helmet Templates WIP.

    Quick hitter on the helmet. I cant tell by your design. Is the helmet dome a perfect dome, or is it wide, flat etc? May want to get a side and front shot of the real fett helmet, and adjust a bit, but overall it looks great.

    Second, i have to say im really interested in the rocket pack. It should be awesome to see what you do with it.

    Re: New Helmet Templates WIP.

    Hey,

    Thanks for that, though I had that one in hand. The dome isn't a sphere just chopped in half. This is based on WoF blueprints so the shape of the dome is true to those blueprints, it's a slightly stretched out sphere, slightly flattened(sp?) on the top. It's as close to Alans blueprints as I could get.

    I'm just starting to unfold the Arena jet pack. I need to make some alterations though so that pieces won't run off the page when printed. Like Alans templates for the jet pack, they need joining up after printing? I'm trying to make these templates in a way that all parts will fit onto their pages to be joined up again later when building. So you'll have gluetabs to help point out where everything goes. Similar to Alans still but slightly different at the same time. You won't need a few pages to illustrate how to reassemble the printed pages if I'm making any sense here??

    Re: New Helmet Templates WIP.

    Morning guys!

    I know I said I'd have this uploaded by the end of the day yesterday, I was hoping to have had the Arena pack ready too to release them both lastnight. Unfortunately I ran out of time, then to top it off my connection died and I couldn't even upload the helmet.

    I'll have the Arena pack done shortly(this morning) so I'm making the helmet available now!

    I've scaled this to 27cm(height) but being pepakura, it can easily be rescaled before printing so if for example you had a kid and wanted to make him/her a helmet, then you could. Also, I didn't know the height of an actuall 1/1 helmet.

    Get them here:

    Fett Helmet Letter.zip

    Fett HelmetA4.zip

    Hope you like them, and if there are any prblems don't hesitate to ask or mention them.

    Skup --

    Working on my Daft Punk helmet again, but once I finish up some work with that, I will be tackling this. The Thomas Bangalter Daft Punk helmet is, after all, mostly pepakura based, as well.
