    Vor'e Jodo. im working on the dome of the helmet at the moment, as i cant paint my chest plates untill i get them mounted, so that the lines will match up. im cheating and using an old cycle helmet as the dome section, and will either put thick card as the sides and cover it in fiberglass, or make the sides out of plastic sheets.

    Oh, so you are scratch-building the helmet? Post some pics of the progress! Everybody here loves seeing scratch-built progress pics.

    Here is what i have done today. ive taken the polystyrene padding out so it sits lower on my head (it was too high), built the fin with card, and covered it in filler to smooth out the ridges and gaps. it needs sanding, and probably another layer of filler before it is perfectly smooth, then fiberglass.

    I like the helmet. The range finder is cool, but i don't know about having the whole stalk like the eye piece. Especially if you stick an LED in it. The rest looks pretty sweet though. Thats a good idea for the leather straps by the way.

    Interesting dome you have there. How much does it weigh so far?

    hardly anything. there is only a small amount of filler to fill in the gaps, and smooth over the ridge where the card starts. once its sanded, ill cover it in fiberglass and it should be great

    I love looking at these Mandos. Man Your scheme going on is soo cool! I think about what my armor would look like if I made a custom one, mine had a lot of whites/blacks/grays/reds too. Very cool!

    Vor'e Sithchick. im glad people like my ideas.

    This is what i have got done today. ive sanded down the done, cut out the side and built one of the cheek sections. I will have to put filler around the cheek joints to get a smooth edge, but it will be worth it. hope people like it.
