    This is a new thread where I will be using simple 3 dimensional computer techniques to make a helmet and possibly a full costume for the character Rinzler/Tron in Tron Legacy.

    This is where I am at the end of loooong day #1.

    The files have been created for the torso as well which took hours on end, but the helmet is the man focus for now. You can see that the model is very detailed with many different vertexes, which I might have to smooth out in the process of making this.

    So at the end of a long day one I realized that the 3d file I made of Rinzler had the details of the special ops men that appear in the club fight scene, which are sent by Clu. I will see if I can complete the helmet of Rinzler and this spec ops soldier will be a definate must-do project in the near future. Sorry for the mishappen.

    The pictures of the men I talk about are below.

    Hey guys while I'm working on this helmet figured I would give you a sneak peek of something else to get a little bit more hype going for this project. In total the helmet and this took 6 hours to make and unfold to perfection. All that is left for you is to scale and adjust. This will be much harder though, I warn you.

    Hey guys just a little heads up that this project might be taking a little longer because I'm also working on my Clu helmet and making Halo files for 405th as well. Updates will still be on their way.

    I wonder how I could pep the torso into a flexible wearable piece, convert to foam template? :)

    I'll try my best but that might take a while because it's so detailed, but I'll still give it a shot definately.

    Yes I did! I though it would be hard since the cast is made out of polyurethane resin, so I was afraid it would melt, but it worked out great at the right temperature!

    Your bucket is great sire! Thanks again Crimson!
