    What kind of helmet is this?

    I was browsing Fleabay and came across this bucket. Description says it is a Rubies. How could you "fix" something that warped without rebuilding half of the helmet?

    i'd forget this type of buy. For a reasonable sum of less than 100 you can pick yourself up a great bucket.

    these things take a lot of work and time

    Although I wouldn't recomend buying one, the way to fix it would be to heat it up and reshape it.

    you fix that by taking it off your shelf, tossing it in the rubbish bin, and replacing it with a nice resin / fiberglass one!

    Roger that! I didn't want to offend anyone and wasn't sure if this was one of the mass-produced helmets that people modified to make a decent helmet from.
    I'll try scratch-building again, before I pay hard-earned cash for something like that. I learned from the mistakes I made on my scratch-builds, so now I have more confidence and experience. Honestly, my last one looked a lot better than this one on Fleabay, but my frustration had reached critical mass, so I put it on the back burner. The flippin' dome is what kept messing me up, plus the construction of the cheeks. Oh well, burn and learn, I guess.
