For my up and coming crusader era armor I am slowly making a "TT" visor helm  8)

These two pictures are from the Knights of the Old Republic comic book series and show the basis for my helm ...




I used two base ball helmets, some 3mm sintra, epoxy and bondo glass to start shaping the main parts of the helm ...




This is the initial fit up of the upper and lower sections ...





The upper and lower sections are screwed together (chicago screws) and bondo glass was used to fill the seams and holes. I attached the latest template for the visor to the helm and found a nice "grill" for the nose piece...




More pictures to come in the future.
Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated  8)

Awesome, I've got a very similar skateboard helmet I plan to use for my first build. Yours looks great so far! Can't wait to see the end result.

This is an incredible looking helmet! I'm not usually a fan of non-Modern era buckets, but you've caught my attention with this one!
