hey, that helmet turned out pretty good man
Sep 11, 2012, 12:08 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
the only problem i had was working out the hinge but still have it look flush when locked shut.. so i decided to go for a thick piece of rubber/foam and stuck it tight with super glue..
the other thing was i bought some 1in foam for the padding.. then tried it on, too tight. so i pulled out the foam padding and halved the thickness... but left the padding above the visor at the front where i added a strip of velcro and shhh don't tell wife one of her new face cloth from the bathroom not even used.
now.. my son wants me to make the full original set of the power rangers at 6in high so he can have them displayed on a shelf in his room. got them all apart from red and blue

That looks GREAT! Did you make or find the template for the foam detail on the helmet? Also, Did you find a blank version of the helmet to put the foam on or did you modify it?

i got the template for the tiger with the pepakura file.. cut it out of card the used the card template on the foam

I'm loving your ranger helmet! It looks ten million times better than my pepped one did, thats for sure! If you need any help with anything else, just let me know, and I may just be able to help you out =).

Wow man!! Great job on that helmet!! I can only hope that when I start mine it's half as good as yours!!

Subscribed. Looking forward to seeing more pics of the sword you are making.
Sep 13, 2012, 12:09 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
Which pep file did you use? It looks like you made the helmet without all the details, and just added them afterwards with the foam.
The one I have, actually has all the details build into the pep which I'm not looking for.
Sep 13, 2012, 10:48 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
Yeah... I second Tritons.... what pep file was that?
Sep 13, 2012, 11:16 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
cool, nice work with the helmet
Sep 14, 2012, 11:07 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
i bought the pep file from propzone.. not sure who made it.
i made the helmet 1st fibreglass, bindo (car body filler) it was just the helmet.. and glued on the foam sections then masked off and sprayed appropriate colours..
a little bit more progress on the sword. Maybe this weekend i'll start on the the handle. but remember tho.. the balsa wood i'm using is 1/4inch thick cut to rough shape glued onto the 3mm MDF then finely sanded with dremel and sandpaper into shape.
i'll try get some photos up of the sword with it progress so far.

if anyone has any questions about my ranger helmet please feel free to ask i will answer them... or even about the rest of the white ranger costume.

Yeah I don't think I'll be paying for that helmet, might have to just improvise. Looks a lot easier tho.
Sep 15, 2012, 5:16 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
Yeah...that sword is coming along BEAUTIFULLY.
I ordered one online from Saban. It's not the talking one, But I play on using it to make a screen accurate version, and I may just make resin casts available when I'm done.
Sep 15, 2012, 6:45 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
You know...the more and more I look at this pep helmet, I'm realizing a couple things.
It's not very accurate. Not the work, as SirBuBBaLoT has done a brilliant job, but the actual file as per his screen shot.
So I went and looked at the one I have that I believe was done by EyeofSauron, and that one too has similar inaccuracies. The only other file I know is the blackkaos ones, and honestly, I think that one is least accurate of them all.
Does anyone know of any other White Ranger helmet pepakura files? Perhaps one that is screen accurate? Sorry SirBuBBaLoT, didn't mean to hijack your thread. =P
Sep 15, 2012, 9:22 PM - Re: pepakura white ranger helmet
the helmet i made was for my son, a fancy dress costume for him to wear on a night out with his fellow mates who too will be dressed up in fancy dress.
when my son saw what i had made he was over the moon with it. he wasn't interested if the helmet was screen accurate or not. in his eyes he has a white ranger helmet he can call his own.
all i can say is.. if my son is happy with his white ranger helmet so am i.
sorry guys but my main aim here was not to get a screen accurate but to make my son a power ranger costume to which he was always dreamed of having one since he was 5years old.. and with this helmet i made his dreams come true.
and working on a budget i think i've done a good job on the helmet and the extra's
