Today I finished laying out, measuring and making a rough template of the inside of the FP, MR helmets.
If you dont have a FP helmet, I highly recommend them. His worksmanship with the fiberglass is second to none. You wont get a sturdier, lighter, or cleaner helmet anywhere for the price.
I will be using the premium kit. Though I feel the premium kit is overkill, because the budget kit is superb, either will work. If you want all those bling aluminum pieces, and the ability to paint it all seperate, then the premium kit is your huckleberry.
This kit will be a full intrior. It will consiste of 4-5 skins, with padding inlays. I will over the next month, be laying out the internals.
The sides and rear electronic prop pieces will be based on my V2 stormrider pieces. I will be re=-designing parts that I did not like on the first pass. Ill be adding a skin that goes under the pieces (The new version will have the old pieces attached so it will go in as one piece) that wraps from cheek to cheek. The cheek and mandible pieces will be covered, the forehead will have a wrap around, the T visor will have a gasket that goes all the way around it, and finally the dome will be made of pieces that fill most of the gaps.
In the next days or so, I will show how I create the inner templates, and the layout/layup of the rear electronics.
Thanks, really looking forward to doing this project. This will be my end all be all helmet for my white fett.
