I'm new to DH but did receive a Sarge helmet and I have to say, it's awesome. Sanding time was VERY minor. Now to start the hard part, painting, electronics, etc....

I second this. I think you've done an astounding job prepping it, I think it would be a shame to not show the paint up progress.

I've started working on my SgtFang mystery helmet I received last week.

Here are the tools I'm using right now:

At this point, I've used a Dremel to trim the bottom edge of the helmet, and cut out the visor.

Then I used a sanding wheel and sandpaper to even out the width the entire visor opening, to achieve a uniform thickness. I will do the same thing for the bottom of the helmet edge later:

For the corners, I used an X-Axcto to carefully carve the corners, and finished it with a Emery board and a tiny triangle file:

Comments are welcome!

Next step: the keyholes...


Hey BatNinja, I know this is an old thread so sorry for the resurrection but I'm just starting my build of the exact same helmet. I have my T section cut out and was curious as to what thickness you filed the visor opening width down to before mounting the lens? If you remember that is... :)
