New life for my first helmet.
« on: Jul 04, 2017, 06:47 PM »
Once upon a time I made my first helmet, which has gained some popularity in the RFC.
It had flaws and it is now no longer in production.

I decided to redo it, update it, make it interesting, convenient, visually compact and primarily suitable for women.

The theme will be updated in the next few weeks.


This helmet had lain for several years in the garage because of the marriage.

The comparison with my main helmet.


Should no longer be problems when your the nose dont put in helmet.






I plan on it as a removable part.



The helmet is almost complete.
Have a little bit of grinding and i can do mold.
Next plans are detachable ear caps and rangefinder.

Update!
After fitting of a prototype of a helmet at a clan meeting, it has been decided to improve a dome.
Selected the final design and carried out the work, which took 4 days.

Oh wow :o

That is so clean it actually looks digitally generated. Good job.
Look forward to seeing how these casts come out from that quality of a master.

For the RFC!


The premiere of the new helmet.
Some members and recruits have begun to receive a new helmet. Soon I hope to see it completed and painted.

Also working on a new rangefinder.

This helmet looks amazing!  :o The amount of work you put into it really shows. I love the detail of the little indent on the cheek, and the rangefinders are awesome, too. I'm looking forward to seeing one fully-assembled and painted up! :)

Why am I not surprised that this amount of quality came from Red Fist Clan. I have praised the work of your clan for a long time and this lives up to their reputation and more! I'm genuinely speechless though, this is surgeon-like precision craftsmanship. I'm blown away.

Got a batch of 10 green visors. Now I can Install them in the helmet with screws.






If anyone is interested, I made small run on these helmets.

Unfortunately or fortunately, I am so in demand at work that there is very little time for the helmet )
But I made two improvements - the right ear without a rangefinder and a set of horns to install.
