after that im prity well straped for time untill next year ( i would like these done and out the flightube before xmas )

also i have a written and pic tutorial on how i build the helmet up
heres a few shots

cut and trimm to middel edge

Image

glue or screw small plastic strips for the middel seam
Image
Image

join together
Image
Image

use the same way to join the chinpiece
after that fill her with expansion foam
Image
Image

when the foam is hard cut some of it out so that the helmet fits your head ( leave enough space for padding ) fill the middel seam and chin seam with bondo sand it and prep for painting and thats it basicaly the written tutorial is more detailed that my quick jump here

so guys try and get your orders in

Very interesting how you have built this so far. Can't wait to see how the screws disappear, unless that are just there to hold things together for now, and are unscrewed later on.

Cool site! Thanks for the link...
How heavy is a finished helmet? Fiberglass seems like it would add a lot of weight to a helmet.

It has some weight to it, but not too bad. I'm working on a cushion system for the inside-it can be used with any helmet. I designed some about 10 years ago for my Boba Fett bucket, and will use similar materials and technique on these. Once done, I'll post a DIY tutorial for all.

A few of you know that I do the viper helmets with lightkits

the helmets are vacformed from 2mm hips ( left and right side and chin piece )

greeblys are resin ( eagle )

the light kits come working ( all leds ) they run off a 9v block battery

i send each buyer a pic tutorial when they buy the helmet

so what do they cost

i am going to offer the guys on this board a FRACKING GOOD OFFER

what i can do is this i have to sorts of plastic that i use one is pure white both sides
then i also get a lot of rest plastic ( these our also white but with a print on one side )
now the thing is this you have to spray paint the helmet so what ever colour the plastic is it does not matter ( and i always use the printed side for the inside of the helmet )

so im going to offer both versions of the helmet ( in my rest plastic ) with a working light kit for

:huh: 85$ to you each :wtf:

now for shipping i can not do any better than what the post service wants the shipping cost is 55$
DHL worldwide ground shipping ( takes 4 to 8 weeks ) i know thats a pain but airmail is twice as high

i can fit about 4 helmets into one box ( to save shipping costs )

i work on a first come first served rule ( first on my list you get it first )

heres what they look like
