    Sep 27, 2008, 9:34 PM - Quick Cardboard Helmet #1

    Hey ya'll, This is my second helmet. I built one twoyears ago in about 2 hours, but I still count it. This is made of cardboard and hot glue. I just wanted to see if it fit, what materials I should make my next on with, and a warm up with the templates. This was made in about total 4-5 hours my guess.

    Here are the link's:

    Is it too small or perfect. Did I attach the front cover on the first pic right? Or do I need a lip like in the red? I saw on one of Antman's post he had a lip, But I didn't nocitce till afterward.

    Thanks!

    Great start there Cewydew! I would say its probably a little too small in proportion to you. You could probably elongate the front cheeks and mandibles to make it more propotionate to your face. But very very good start you got there.

    Are you using Wizardofflights Templates?
