    Kid sized Jango style helmet

    I had a little bit of inspiration. The one on the left is a BKBT and the one on the right is a Juddz Dweed kid's helmet. My goal was to build something that fell right between the two. It still needs more work

    lol, yes. I'd say it's an ideal size for an average sized 8-10 year old. If I had your screen cast helmet it would be to the immediate right of the BKBT, but this one is still smaller than the Rubies latex delux that I have. It's a chopped up Pre Viszla helmet, so I still need to reduce the large cheek areas. It's being made to have a movable aluminum rf stalk and will be molded for reproduction. I'm basically making it for the son of a friend.

    lol...more like a "super" cute little "fem-mando"! It's too small in my opinion for a small adult female, especially since this helmet is smaller than a Rubies deluxe (there's an oxymoron).

    A little more progress on this thing. I was able to rework the cheeks, and after about 2-3 attempts I'm finally satisfied with them. I also began carving out the triangles, and once those are done, I'll attach the ear pieces and begin prepping it for molding.

    Very nice Cruzer. Awesome work as always my friend.

    Funny thing too, as that helmet would fit really well with the scale of the kids jet pack I've started... more on that later.

    A kid's jetpack sounds like a really good idea.

    All finished...

    The Royal Blue is on. I'm painting this helmet exactly like I paint adult sized ones. First I masked off all of the parts that were going to remain silver, then I lightly sanded the exposed areas with 320 grit paper that had been worn down somewhat with prior use. Lastly, I gave all of the exposed areas a good coat of Royal Blue. I'll give it about 5-6 days to dry before masking off the parts that will remain dark blue.

    Thanks, but there are many guys on here whose skills surpass mine...especially the Boba experts.

    Here's the final product with removable visor and movable aluminum stalk. Now it's just waiting for its little owner to come get it. I'll be sure to take some pics when he picks it up.
