    ...but I have absolutley no idea where to start, I've been browsing the forum, but can't really find any kind of step by step blueprint. I see a bunch of different threads for like the visor and for the scanner, but nothing about the actual helment mold. Should I just use other people as referances?

    I also have no idea what material to use? Sintra?

    I'm still new to the site, so it's perfectly possible that I missed some sort of obvious thread that has this info

    help appreciated.

    Thanks

    I'm building the one FettDad mentioned, but there is another option. You can use wizardofflight templates. Antman made a beautiful helmet out of cardboard and is working on a 2nd/3rd helmet as we speak. Both of his threads are excellent tutorials in building the WOF bucket.

    Have fun.

    WOF's templates are great and quite a few people have made them. There's Antman's 2 builds/tutorials, which are very detailed, and one by Honus which is also pretty good. There's also someone doing a WOF helmet with Sintra, I forget who. So you can follow that if you want to use sintra.

    The no. 1 rule though: search is your friend. Just search for scratch build. I don't think any of the threads I mentioned are beyond the first 3 pages of the Helmet section, because I'm pretty sure I've seen them fairly recently. Other than that, good luck.
