    Third! My PP3 helmet is a TF from his original run. It's an outstanding helmet.

    A couple more cheeky shots... Now my least favorite part of building this helmet, the lower cheeks have been placed and replaced four or five times to get them right... You will also notice i have carefully Dremeled the visor area out, finishing off with a file and sand paper.

    Here are a couple of shots of test fitting my alloy ears. The lower cheeks have been replaced again at this stage, hopefully for the last time! The next stage is building out the rear panels and key slot section...

    I'm always willing to help whenever I can. As I said, I love what you did so far with the helmet sculpt!

    You mean why scratch build a helmet when there are a plethora of screen accurate helmets with lineage to the original screen used helmet out there?

    Why build another helmet period...sure there are helmets with linage and such, and you have made a helmet before....just asking why your making another...

    You know when you feel you have to try and get something right?

    Nothing wrong with an honest question. I take it you think there is no reason to bother making a helmet as all the basses are covered?

    I was just curious...a simple I was bored would have been enough for me...I mean...theres nothing wrong with building it. You have to have some sort of reasoning for building another helmet.

    Re: terminal fettler TF2 helmet build WIP... At it again!

    I suppose I'm trying to perfect my sculpting skills, also all the reproduction helmets I've seen still aren't perfect, all have inaccuracies...

    Well, for whatever reason you're doing it G - keep doing it! Looking friggn outstanding sir! And can very much understand the need to get something 'just right'. There can often be a fine line, but ultimately the difference of being happy with your work, or having little things there - that no one else notices much, but stick out to you like dogs balls - is the driving force. Much respect!

    The first and most important thing is when you say "I did this! This was made by my hands!". There's nothing wrong with scratch builds when they are done well, and the only limit is your imagination. From what I saw, whatever Garrett did it turned out excellent, so I would like to see a lot of new things made by him in the near future.

    Thanks guys, here are some photos of the rear panel area being sculpted and the key slots taking shape, also the ear platforms being made.

    Totally agree with the reproduction helmets and others close to lineage having a lot of inaccuracies , hence why i sold mine. Might have the next hot lid here with "that look" lookin forward to the finished product.

    Re: terminal fettler TF2 helmet build WIP... At it again!

    Don't mean to hijack but I am curious to hear what numerous inaccuracies a helmet even with genuine lineage to originals might have? I wouldn't have necessarily expected that. Haha!
