    I was inspired by the work done of the DOCTOR using BMX bike helmet as foundation build for Judge Dredd 3D helmet and took a chance to build my own with increased accuracy based on the movie...

    Original thread from the DOCTOR : http://www.therpf.com/f9/surprise-pr...helmet-155724/

    The project started from this :

    Looks similar to the DOCTOR's build....

    I like the direction this is going. That is very creative use of the original helmet.

    After the pre-form, I found the carton to be too weak and added acrylic (face shield) which I bought from the mall to reinforce the side walls....

    Cutting them to form :



    Then temporarily installing them as support :





    Next step... check the form as compared to the movie

    Pretty sweet so far, im a big fan of Dredd and can't wait for the finished product. Also I am on a similar path with a current project of my own. I have a basic military style airsoft helmet that I am converting into a Cobra Viper helmet, and im running into problems with the side walls. What did you use for filler? Any help would be great. Keep up the good work
