    Jun 25, 2015, 7:57 PM - Stencil Sizing #1

    About to begin with the helmet prep and paint. I bought an Animefan bucket and the Rafal stencils don't seem to fit. Does anyone have any of these files fitted to this helmet or how should I make this fit without distortion? Anything would be helpful.

    Just adjust the size on your printer. What I do is to print if off the normal size, then see how much too small it is. Then I use my printer to scan it back in and print it in a larger size. For the FP budget helmet that I am currently working on I have to print it at 110%.

    i had to resize and skew raf's templates to make them fit my fp proto premium helmet. several hours in photoshop tweaking here and there. i just checked my drive, and i don't have them saved unless they're on my external that has crapped out on me.

    I've wondered if anyone has the adjusted sizes for the FPH2 that they can post
