    Re: my custom heavy mando

    thanks for the compliments folks! good and bad news however... turns out i have my exams stretched over the nest three weeks so wont be able to do any more work till 12th of may. that was the bad news, the good news is that i managed to put together the helmet dome and start on the fin. havent coatedit with any thing yet so it looks a bit messy but need to wait with that untill the fin is completely assembled. enjoy the pics and tell me what you think





    btw,

    i ued steel wire to get the correct shape of the bottom part of the fin sorry i dont have any pics of that



    cheers

    cool, sounds easy to work with. im using 4-5mm hard cardboard and have to use an electric saw to cut it... should have used cereal boxes

    Try something like this:

    http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=46539

    You can get them with a black tint, and they work REALLY well. I made several helmets using visors from T-visors.com and then did a couple more with these. They work just as well as the $25.00 ones from T-visors.
