UGH! I did go back to my bucket as well.

Apart from loads of bonding and sanding I did, I started going for the ears I've been thinking about, and the rangefinder.

Although I've messaged the idea, I'd like to ask the app team members for a go / no go on that idea, since it deviates from common solution.

As usual, I put a rough model of what I want to achieve. If it is accepted, I'll start working on it.

The main issue is if the rangefinder can slide front / rear or it has to go up and down?





note: while right earcup has rangefinder I plan to put a light in the left one.

Second thing is the rebreather location (I was going to have it since the start! It just migrates all over my head! ;) ). Now I want to put a rebreather in the earcup. You can see a niche for that under right ear. The front would be covered with the grill / gill.
I also like the look of it without that addition, so wanted to have your opinion on that.





What do you think?

Wow! This is the first time seeing this thread and I really love it! Your helmet has such a cool and unique shape to it. And it's starting to look really clean, vod!

I did some painting recently, and I love the outcome. So I wan't to share it!

I took lots of photos on the way, so I'm making some colage on how it was done step by step...

So let's start with a rear, to build up the suspence! ;)





Now stepping a little to the side...



And the front...



And Tadaaa!  :D

The helmet design you posted looks similar to this bucket on etsy. I got it for the same purposes, and it's CRL adherent. You could ask him how to make the greeblies he uses or buy a set of them yourself. He's good about responding quickly and he's gotten good reviews from me and a bunch of other people who have his helmets.

It seems like the history of my build is gone with the photobucket.

Fortunately, I finally got where the bucket was heading!
It still needs few finishing touches, before I can say it's complete (namely the insides and some neat rangefinder screen pattern).

But I might say it's otherwise delivered!









And it finally got some filter gills as I wanted from the begining!  8)

Great job, vod! Out of curiosity, how's your peripheral vision with the sliding rangefinder? It looks fantastic, I just hope you're not half blinded.
