    Jun 24, 2014, 7:55 AM - Show-Off: Custom Full-Metal Pre Vizsla-Style Helmet #1

    Just a little Show-off

    So my Girlfriend wanted a Pre Vizsla Style helmet for her Armor - But all avaiable to buy would be too big and we dont wanted to make her a Wooble-head.
    Then i thougt. The Armor is already Metal, so why not the Helmet too?

    Thanks to the Pepakurafiles of HD1138 i was able to convert the 3D modell into CAD files for the Lasermachine from my Buddy


    starting with a smaller paper prototype to test the templates


    Then i jumped a few steps and already assambled the Parts. For the Dome i used an old Motorcycle Helmet that was supposed for my Jaster Mereel Helmet. But it was too small for my head so i used it here.


    To hide some scaling errors of the prototype and some of the spaces between the layers i had to put some metal-putty into it.


    The Earcaps are made out of 4 parts. Base with nut, a dished out topdome, and two antenna-sockets.
    The Antennas i will make later until i find the old C-Net Mobile-phones in my Basement ^^


    She wanted of course a custom Paintjob - We've figured out that the white earcaps looked better in the concept sketch than in real.


    So i've made it gold later.




    EDIT:
    Ok i helped her a bit with her armor too but not tooo much.
    only the Gaunts


    boob-plates


    And Backplate


    The rest of the plates were bended and dished by herself.
