What are going to do to disguise the picatinny rail? 

I'be done the same thing, using a rail to mount a light (see helmet WIP), and was told it wasn't the best idea, too obvious as to its origin. 

I've since layered it up with putty.  Once it has fully cured I'll see how it looks.

I used putty to contour it to the helmet. It's a pretty small section of rail compared to the light, so you can't even tell it's a rail once the light is attached. I'll probably add some greeblies or cloth tape or something once the light is attached to further obfuscate the method of attachment.

-UPDATE-

Blackwash applied!

Made some progress last night.

Finished weathering the light. Also hit it with blackwash after and then assembled it.



Mounted the light.







Made a quick visor template. Shined a light from underneath. Worked well.



Cut out my visor and just kind of stuffed it in there to see how it looked. I like.



Originally I had considered using these blue gels... I think I like the plain mirror more.



UPDATE:

Made a dirty cloth/rag wrap that is "holding" the light on.









NEXT STEPS:

  • Mount the visor
  • Clearcoat the bucket
  • Add something to the light attach point to make it look better. Thinking of wrapping in dirty looking cloth of some kind
  • Add padding to the inside. (There is only a loop of foam stuffed in there currently)
  • I would like to make a gasket... but that's not a priority

Annnnd, I'm back!

It's been a while, but after attending NY Maker Faire this past weekend, I've come out of build limbo. I re-tinted my visor and finally installed it in my bucket. I installed some foam inside but this will just be temporary as I play on ordering some professional helmet padding.

Some shots right after I installed the visor!

Let a little guy try on the bucket. Hopefully I've inspired him to grow up and be a Mandalorian!


Plan on adding better padding, a fan, and I'd love to add one of those gaskets at the bottom. Need to figure out who makes those.
