    I think it is good for the amount of time you say you have to work on it. I'd put it into gear, and use that. I don't think you'll find something better in your amount of time.

    Have you looked into a cheap baseball hardhelmet at Wal-MArt? they have them in right now and its a perfect base fpr the helmet, and also 15 bucks.

    Without a reference scale I cannot tell, one word of advice though, I think your making to many threads about the same thing, you might want to limit them to the same one there is a TOS about spaming to many threads at once, agian just an FYI.

    Most scratch helmets are made from cardstock, sintra or styrene then bondoed smooth Lots of work though dont look for it to be easy.

    ...well I'd suggest using a hardhat liner on your existing frame.
