    Hey Guys
    Greetings from Australia.
    New to the forum but Iv been hanging around for a while checking out threads.
    Some amazing work happens here!

    Anyway Iv always wanted a Daft Punk helmet but never had the money to spend buying one of the production ones as great as they are.

    So I decided to try my hand at making my own.

    Started with a Pep model I found on a Daft Punk Forum.

    Unfortunatly Im not as talented at Pep models as I would like so I only used it as a rough guide.

    After resin I decided to get straight into the Bondo work.

    After Looking through countless reference photos and other build threads I decided to take my favourite parts of each helmet and make one that I love as opposed to a factually correct version of a single helmet.

    I know some people may find this terrible but I figured if I'm going to put the effort in I may aswell make something I want.

    For example I'm going with a round chin strap on my version although the actual Human After All Era Helmets have a squared off chin.

    Also lights because I'm a big kid who likes flashing lights!

    And this is where I'm at currently. Still needs more fine tuning o the shape but I'm getting there.

    Any Help, Comments or Guidance would be amazing.
