hey everyone! for my next project I am going to be making a t-51b power armor helmet from the fallout games!
I am using the power armor edition helmet as reference. and I will be using 18 gauge mild steel for most of the metal work.

I am starting with the back part of the helmet since it has the least amount of details and will be the easiest part to make.

here is what I finished tonight. I used a hammer and English wheel to shape the back part of the helmet. it doesn't look like much yet but its just the beginning!

I will be making a build video for this helmet showing the whole process of how I make it. thanks for checking this out and feel free to ask any questions you have! as soon as I make more progress I will be back with an update!

UPDATE 1

I made a little more progress on the helmet last night! I got one of the sides roughed in. its still not looking like much but this weekend it should start taking shape.

If any lore said it was ceramic armor plating, that doesn't mean the structure isn't metal. Ceramic armor is typically encased in metal or kevlar.

What I find amazing is how some images look parts of other helmets, such as a Cylon or Judge Dredd.
The newest set of images are amazing.

I was expecting something kinda halfassed. This is killer! You do custom choppers for a living? You going with a sandblasted or polished finish?
