hello I got the faceplate almost done. I flanged around the eyes and welded all the pieces together. I also started to flange around the inside edge of the mask I just have to finish the flange around the bottom. then the faceplate is complete and I can move on to the rest of the helmet!!

hello. I got the faceplate all finished up. I finished the flange on the back side. I also added the step in on the cheeks. after I finished the faceplate I started to make patterns for the rest of the helmet. I got two pieces made and temporally attached them to the face plate to hold them where the need to be while I build the rest of the helmet.

You know this is a love, hate thread. I love what i am seeing so far, but what am i seeing. An end result, that's it. Which brings me to what i hate about this. Hmmm hate is too strong of a word really, more of what i would really appreciate seeing from this thread. Bigger better pics, show pics of you working the metal. Tools that you are using to create this work of art. Your work space, guess i would just like to see more background stuff. I love this build, but till now it's all but a tease lol...GM

English wheel. Now i really hate you lol. Very nice to see. I see two pics just before the english wheel pics. Your hammering the steel, but what is underneath the metal. I have seen sand bags and tree stumps, but i can't exactly make out what you are using to hammer against. Please enlighten me brother. All in all 100% better with these new pics...GM
