    First off just wanted to give props to WoF for the templates. This is my first try at a helmet. I am trying to use my abilities with sheet metal to create it. Here are some pics of what I got done so far. I will post more as I get more done. For my dome I will be using a blading helmet I had laying around. Thanks for any comments or questions if you have any for me.

    What kind of metal are you using? I used 22 gauge sheet steel for mine.

    Yeah that is what im using also. Just picked up some from a tractor supply store. It comes in 2' square peices which is easier to work with then a full sheet from a metal supply company.
