    yeah i can see a problem with that, as the cowl, with especially the chin strap are usually flexible,to fit your face. this is rigid, so the form can not adjust to your face, especially the mouth opening and chin strap. thats what i think,but for your sake i hope i am wrong ;)

    Cerberus, I like the way you resculpted the scowl, that makes it your own. I'm a little concerned though that there looks to be some distortion around the mouth and jaw, does it still fit and do you intend on straightening those distortions out or are you going to work with it? Very nice work and I am going to keep an eye on this build.

    The chin strap is hard but you can open your mouth...i was thinking of removing the chin strap but then i think the helmet would look abit strange

    A few more pictures...sanded down the first layer of primer and sorted out all the high and low points. Painted it after all the sanding with primer filler to fill all the little holes then sprayed it again with a guide coast of paint...still lots of sanding to do...stay tuned!

    Omel is right, I was going to suggest going to the BOTB as well. I am a member over there as well as Alphaprym and there are alot of great people over there. They will be very welcoming and very interested in seeing a cowl helmet built. Make sure to read the terms of service over there before posting as many new members have not been doing so and problems arise. I think you'd be a great member over there so check it out. Best of luck and hope to see you there as well.

    These pictures are after i had used wet/dry sand paper to smooth the mask to a mirror finish, then i sprayed a final coat of primer filler. I am just waiting for the pasti dip latex effect paint to arrive then i can finish the mask.

    looks pretty good so far, you will need to pad theback tho, so the mouth opening looks snug :)
