    No problem, Todd.

    IŽd say that the cut out lengthy holes on top should be on level and aligning with the L-shaped groove in the back.

    Comparison:


    Otherwise I can only repeat what the others wrote, awesome work !

    Michael
    You are right Michael! When I was looking at the pics from both sides, it looked like the slots on the right side were a bit asymetric as opposed to the ones on the left side. But it could have been a optical illusion due to camera angle.

    Since I couldn't make out which one was right, I decided to throw a little bit of "me" into it. I plan on drilling out the slots in my wife's finished helmet and backing it with screen for some exhaust fans.

    Good eye Michael!

    wow, amazing work Todd.
    Being that this is your first sculpt, do you have any photos of the sculpting process before you got to the stage that you posted in your opening post? That would be cool to see.

    I wish I did Chris. Lets just say that I will never buy anything but a Western Digital hard drive from now on. I lost over 250 gigs worth of memories recently

    I ended up making another vac-form buck of the front of the helmet so I could make that detail piece that goes right under the eyes and over each cheek. Here is the pull...



    Just have to cut it out and glue it to the master now.

    hi todd, i dont know if you spotted it but it looks as though the part above the eye is also a stuck on part like the below part. i spotted it on a pic i found on flickr.

    sorry if you already know, just thought id say just in case

    Good eye brother! Yes, there is another strip glued on just above the eye lense. I don't know if I am going to put that piece there...I held a strip of plastic up to the helmet and you are not really going to see any additional detail with it there. I think it was originally put on the screen used helmet to cover a seam line when they put the helmet together. Opinions anyone...

    It's your call to put the piece above the eye lenses or not. But if it was used and it can be seen on an original... then I say put it there if you can. You've gone this far with all the right parts... don't stop now.

    hi todd, i saw that you had vac'd the front of the face anyway so i thought it could be an easy addition since you already have the part.

    personally i would put it on, but its your meatball

    Here ya go Stevo!

    I got the detail piece under the eyes cut out and glued to the master yesterday.





    Due to popular demand, I'll be cutting out the detail piece over the eyes next.

    Yes! Updates! Thank you. It looks awesome. You're almost there. Can't wait to see it finished and put together with the rest of the costume. Keep up the excellent work.

    Yes, that is the plan. What you see above is the new master with all the details already there. I'll be making another silicone master mold from it. That way when the helmets are pulled, there will be VERY little work to do in order finish the helmet, i.e. glue on the ear greeblies and the snout piece! No more spending hours and hours cutting out ABS pieces and trying to get them to fit together properly.

    When this kit is finished it will be EXTREMELY simple to make a great looking helmet!
