Helmets / Re: AR7 Helment WIP - First Build

I'd be interested in learning how to cut Pepakura files with a Cricut.

I'd second this. Had a problem trying to get the Cricut to play nice with pepakura.

That should work fine. My hard hat  helmet have a .5in lip that i had to fill in. I stuffed the area with aluminum foil, then with bondo for a level edge.

Awesome, Iíll post some photos once I make some changes.
Thatís a really good idea with the foil, might have to borrow that idea.

 Thank you for your constant advice and help vod  :jango:

I don't understand exactly what's on the thigh plates, but this is a really cohesive color scheme.  This is a nicely prepped kit design, keep up the great work!

It is my poor drawing attempt at some of the frogging designs seen on Napoleonic uniforms. See earlier inspiration pictures

E-6000 doesn't "harden" exactly. I have had similar issues working on bucket gauntlets. With some care and a little bit of force, you should be able to remove the outer shell. There will be alot of peeling involved to clean the inner shell. Make sure you mark your sight line on the inner shell, when you go to make your new outer shell template. Setbacks are always a bummer, less so when you learn from what happened. Good luck.

Iíve got a big head and Iím trying to make the dome less tall, so my idea is to extend the bottom of the face plate as I move it up. Moving the face plate up should also shrink the dome part, or at least the appearance of it. The only issue is that it would create a gap Iíd have to fill between the dome and the face plate where the inner shell doesnít come up enough. I could fill the area with bondo or cut a piece of plastic and graft it in to the slot with e6000.

Does this sound like a feasible option to shrink the appearance of the dome?

All of the above have excellent suggestions. The only thing I'll add is that it's not a bad idea to start sketching out ideas and see where it goes. Even if you're just watching TV or whatever, do a bunch, wait a few days, and take a look at what you did. Keep the ones you like, or make new designs from bits here and there that you like.

Have fun!

yea all the buckles are actually metal buckles not just painted plastic. the fidlock V buckles (ones that are silver and black) are even magnetic.







saddly i didnt see your post and that small hump is good. i can always remake the holster in the future though.

And a strip at the bottom of the collar, you could literally recreate the "T."
