    Hi all,

    I got this helmet for my birthday last month. Went up to Scotland to pick it up from the maker in March. Was great to see the maker.

    I cut a bit of the back out. Mainly the front where the visor will sit in.

    A lot of mess made from cutting out the visor.

    Done a bit of work to it.

    It's made by Sorenzo Props!

    It looks like a plastic/nylon screw spacer you would get at a hardware store. For a wall mount tv or something...

    you can get them in a lot of different sizes and lengths. Best guess.

    The original ones were audio jacks. You can get them at most electronic stores.

    Thom makes a great bucket!

    I have purchased some audio jacks from ebay.

    I have also ordered the electronics from AlexPlusLeds too. Can't wait for the electronic parts.

    Has anyone built one of Thom's helmets before? Any links?

    Does everyone cut the lip out that I have left where the visor goes in?

    Got this from ebay.

    Needs a bit of cutting and painting.

    Hi Jango Trooper,
    I have built five kits, Mostly Sporgos or Artyoms. I always leave the lip so my visor has something to rest on. I also built in a Velcro system for the visor so I can take it off for easy access. 1.jpg
