    As many times as I've seen helmet builds, I would imagine someone would have stated they used a different paint for clasps than the rest of the helmet. But they haven't. I am thinking you just drill the clasps onto the helmet and then paint it all once. And I've seen time and time again, people saying to use automotive paint when painting Ranger helmets. I purchased magnets to make the helmet clasp together, like Sentai footage. Unfortunately, I no long have work space to finish a helmet :(

    i then took the measurments from pic and scaled it and with a little bit of guess work (very little lol) this is what i have drawn
    my white ranger sheild template.jpg

    i might change the neck hole slightly but its looking ok shape wise, what you guys think?
    i will start working on this at some put this week cant wait i am gonna make a full size paper template to try on for the fit to see what needs altering if anythng
    i will obviously post progress and also my saba arrived its the original toy version not the legacy one (i will get the legacy one in the future but for now this one will do :)

    as far as the helmet is coming ive started the tiger pattern only done one side and it looks abit messy but ive done it this way to get it the way i wanted to look
    alot of filling and sanding but i dont mind if the end result is good, also ive altered the visor area slightly as it didnt look quite right let me no what you guys thoughts are on it (i put some colour on it so you can see it better)
