    Hey guys I just put together my iron man mark 42 pepakura/ foam helmet and I have to say it's the best build I've done... So far !! Anyway I'm trying to find hinges that will allow me to have the faceplate to move up and down (like in movie). I've went to Home Depots website and found this..http://m.homedepot.com/p/Schlage-Fr...upport-Right-Hand-Hinge-C9220F3-RH/202315143/

    Is this a suitable hinge? Should I get 2? Please let me know.

    Thanks

    You want info without even giving us a pic of your bucket. Nope not going to do it. Search bar hinges or other members helmets to get an idea. I wouldn't put all the eggs in one bucket, if you know what I mean. I think if you check out what others are using then you can find the right one for you. Will this be a motorized helmet? GM

    I had to custom design mine for my 42 as all the ones for mark 3 aren't going to work. I would suggest taking at look these, because he does have ones for the 42 especially if you want motorize it with a servo. http://www.shapeways.com/designer/TheRealStark?li=pb
