I put the part with the flare in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes then took it out and pressed it into shape while running it under cold water.Originally posted by fettster@Dec 16 2005, 10:16 AM
how did you correct the neck flare, thats the only thing i have to do to mine before i paint it. also, where do you get the lenses to go inside the helmet?
Thanks. There are a couple of flaws not evident in the pictures but overall I am pleased with it. I would do a better job on another one because I have the experience of doing this one.Originally posted by WebChief@Dec 16 2005, 11:50 AM
I think the Rubies looks better in that comparison shot too. Nice job.
I used the padding in a garden chair, cut it to shape and covered it in mesh, gives it a soft, comfortable feeling and the padding itself is pretty thick and forms well to your face..... I personally love the way it fits.Originally posted by SithLord7768@Jan 15 2006, 03:05 AM
im in the middle of a rubies mod right now as well...its coming along but i wont be able to paint it until spring...what did you use for the inside padding? is that motorcycle helmet padding?Â i also found some putty at HD that works even better than the pc-7 epoxy...i cant remeber the name of it but it was something likeÂ Â Â Â plas-tix...it came in a tube and feels and looks alot like clay. it has the two parts rolled into one tube of putty...you cut off what you need and knead it together then mold it..worked real good...as it is made for hard plastics and abs
