Since a have a love of modeling and creating replicas of movie and TV props I decided that I wanted to have a crack at Virgil's helmet from the new series so I wanted to share my progress. At this stage I've pretty much completed the visor section.
The plan is to eventually 3D print it and build it so it's fully wearable, and yes it's life size!



Just so you can get a grasp of what I'm looking to replicate here's some reference pictures I was able to screen cap:

Getting close to finishing initial modelling and I only have the back to model up now. Then it's a simple case of doing up decals and splitting the model into pieces for when I get the chance and have access to a printer I can start printing it out.

Update 2:
Almost finished initial modelling and I only have a few back plates to model up now. Then it's a simple case of doing up decals and splitting the model into pieces for when I get the chance and have access to a printer I can start printing it out.

Finally got around to pretty much finishing the CAD Model of Virgil's helmet from Thunderbirds are Go (just some minor tweaks left)
Next up is to 3D print this when I get the chance

Got some coats of color on Virgil's helmet the other day and it's looking great! Still have more smoothing out and building to do but it feels good getting some color on it

I've now pretty well finished all the printing and most of the body work on the rear is almost done. Just some more smoothing and a top coat or two and it'll be done! Then I need to start working on sanding, filling and priming the front trim which is essential a raw 3D Print at the moment, but we're making progress and that's what matters!
