    Here's the TI 1937 Tie Pilot Helmet project in pictures,
    I cast the back section of my existing Tie Helmet fiber glassed and rough trimmed it and added a vac form TK faceplate , After cutting and reshaping the seam around the face the ear caps plates were cut off replaced and re detailed .
    I spent a good amount of time filling and sanding the Mohawk along with cutting the eye's and frown out to sharpen the edges and then re backing them for molding .
    Sprayed with several coats of filler primer and sanded smooth it was finally painted Black with automotive lacquer, It needs to sit for about a week to let the paint fully cure and then gets it's final polish.
    There's a couple indoor outdoor pictures at the end .

    Very nice work, seems great !

    Just one thing, don't cut the teeth area. No holes on TIE helmets ;)
