    possible base helmet

    Hi ppl

    just been looking at a better base for a scratch built helmet and have come up with this. Its a skateboarding helmet and it has a very distinctive shape, high at the back and sloping at the front. What do you guys think?

    Thats nice. I think they have rougthly the right shape. When i scratch built mine i didn't get the distinctive rise at the back (well not enough anyway)

    The Bell helmet i used was quite accurate, only slight modification needed. The key areas as you mentioned are a near vertical back (in profile) higher at the back and near vertical at the front..

    Do you remember which model you used?

    i think the one pictured is the newer version of the one i used, it need less work as my version had a ridge running around the back which had to be removed...
