    Hello everyone

    Just wanted to post the progress of a recent project we are doing for a client... MK7 Helmet made from EVA foam.

    Helmet was made from 2mm, 4mm and 5 mm EVA Foam.
    Sealed and with primer paint already.

    Next we'll be installing the motorized system prior to final painting.

    Keep building everyone... cheers!

    That looks so good and I can definitely say I would not have guessed it was foam at all had you not said so. How did you seal it to get such a good finish?

    Looking forward to seeing it with the motors in.

    Thanks for all your comments... specially the comments of disbelief... LOL :D

    But then I was like compelled to show proof that it was really an EVA Foam helmet so here is the motorized helmet video to erase all those doubts ;)

    That looks so good. Really nice smooth motion.

    Is it possible to get a look at the hinges and servo mounting? Trying to get my head around it, and it would be a great help.
    Hadn't thought of a switch mounting near the hip but that's a great idea. I might look into borrowing that for my build.

    Great work really.
