Here is the pic of the helmet from when I bought it from the Cargo Hold. Not 100% sure of the mold of the helmet, but its possible a SGT. Fang
Notice the slight warping of the right mandible. Luckily, this was already a WIP, so I had some notes to go off of already on the helmet! The only thing I am not sure about doing is the dent in the trim of the T-visor. I know its there in the movie helmet, but I dont know if I want to get into actually adding more resin, or fiberglass to the bottom of the dip so it actually looks like a bent piece of metal as opposed to one with a little shave off the top
I did a heat up on the helmet to straighten the mandible out, worked great. I want to get the visor mounted in heat it up again, then do my reinforcing to make sure that when the fiberglass hardens, its as straight as I can get it. I noticed the left one was slightly bent in towards the visor slot, so I think having it bolted in will put the shape back where its supposed to be
After looking at some other WIP threads, I discovered that I had a lot of excess resin around the inside edges of the T-slot, so I need to do a bit more trimming before I worry about laying in the glass. Looks like I wont be spraying that primer today after all!
I also need to straighten the bottom of the left mandible out. It flares outward, not straight down
I also notice that the right mandible nas a very slight curve on the vertical line of the T-slot. I am not sure if this is screen accurate, or should I get a sanding block and make it straight?
