I just finished mine (sadly I didnt get to making the visor trim), it was a bit of a rush job for halloween but Im satisfied with it.
What welding visor did you use for this one? Looking all over and can't find it.And so, the end is near, nearly a year after this project started. Good grief.
My last two builds are helmets. Helmets have curves, which complicates things. Guns are easy. They're sorta square. But helmets...no wonder all those SW helmet guys are so uptight
First is the MCRN Marine Helmet:

This is the Season 1 version, which is better. They apparently decided it didn't show enough of the actor's face, so it was re-designed with a full face plate, which is a bit rubbish, imho, but since they continued with the originals in S2 as well, in universe the second version comes across like a pilot version, since it's mostly seen in cockpit scenes. Anyway, I'm rambling.
The base is a Ruroc snowboard helmet:

The visor on my replica, and the original, is a welding eye screen. Thanks to the guys at the MCRN Costuming Facebook group, who contacted Walterklasson Studios, who created the helmets, in order to get the right model.
The visor connector wheels are camera tripod thumbscrews. Pretty much everything else is scratch-build. There is a red LED strip inside, but I found it pretty ineffectual at illuminating the goggles, so it isn't switched on in these pics.

Good build :}Here are some of my 3d printed helmet parts and for millers helmet.
These are the parts i used for my Halloween costume this year. the base is the Chinese TK-1 high altitude helmet. You can find them on Ebay. The large back part doesn't fit the best and requires some grinding to fit over the corrugations on the back of the helmet.www.thingiverse.com
Love the Miller Data Terminal. Excellent work.I've been collecting various airsoft guns and helmets (ski & pressure) over the last few years with a mind to build a bunch of Expanse props, and that time has finally come!
After spending a few days screen-capping blu-rays and collecting other refernce, I decided to make a start with Miller's hand termianal, as seen extensively in Season One.

I drew the terminal in Illustator, allowing space to incorporate a keyring flashlight for illumination.

The pieces were then laser cut and engraved on clear 3mm acrylic sheet. All of the engraved details aside from the characteristic scratch on Miller's terminal were then given a white wash to bring out the detail. The image of Julie was finished in Photoshop and then reverse printed onto clear adhesive vinyl and applied to the back of the terminal. Final touch was the add the flashlight and push-to-make activator. The finished prop:

Next up: UNN Pistol
It looks like a Sabre Pepper Spray Launcher & Pepper Ball Gun. SABRE PEPPER SPRAY LAUNCHER & PEPPER BALL GUN / HOME SECURITY DEFENSE KIT
But at three hundred dollars, it probably isn't.
