Hello,I thought I was at a point where I would be brave and share my first try at a helmet build. The helmet is an attempt to make a replica of a TH-17A EWM Merc helmet from the game SWTOR.
Before I started, I looked at all the great stuff done right here. I came across one of Skirata's Legacy helmets and in fact, it was pretty much the whole inside of the helmet I was going to try and make.
Here is the idea from Star Wars The Old Republic
Here is the Skirata Helmet. Very nice cast.
First mistake. I started with 1/4" plexigass. I read about Sintra later. It was hard to cut and hard to shape but I tried anyways. Here are the pieces cut out.
Attaching the plexi to start shaping.
On the helmet and premiered.
Where I am at today. I still have to add a real visor, LED's, padding and vents to the black spots on the sides. It has to be weathered a bit more also.
So, here it is. Any ideas, comments, criticism’s arewelcome. I have never tried anything like this but enjoyed it very much. If itturns out and if there is any interest, I will share more pictures as I go.
