Re: scratch built bucket

I will give you my rating, once you tell me if the silver/gold is ductape.

(for a visor, you could use a dark peice of plastic, sure itl be hell on your visibility, but with it dark inside the helmet itl be a pain to see into)

Re: scratch built bucket

actually the silver scratches were painted on by myself but i made the helmet without painting it or anything while i was home sick from school.(made the helmet on the coach but painted the whole helmet on the weekend)and so Adeptus whats your rating????and i bet sombody is wondering on how long it took to build and paint???got up at 9-10:00 and worked on it the rest of the day for 8 days of the week but it still needs a visor.I was told by the dented helmet to make the visor from a welding face sheild grade 5 will that work???ill post pics for yah right now too on my Dc-17

Re: scratch built bucket

I suggest using vellum. Its sort of papery.

Re: scratch built bucket

its made from poster board then completely paper mached with 4 layers in other words its not very breakable its sorta almost like plastic!

Re: scratch built bucket

That should do nicely, but i suggest, a heavier tint.

Re: scratch built bucket

Go to the fabric section of your local wal-mart, and you will see two kinds of clear plastic sheets.  one is plain clear, the other has a dark tint.  get the dark tint, cut out two copys of your visor, and attach them both.....that should work pretty well.  if you want to you can even triple layer it.  you'll be able to see through it, and other people won't be able to see in, and it will be somewhat shiny, so it will look like its real.  Does that help?

Re: scratch built bucket

That should depend on the size, if they have different sizes.

Re: scratch built bucket

actuaaly my dad found some plexi glass in the basement.its the perfect sixe too.he told me that if he heat guns it for a while it will be flexible until it hardens up.

Re: scratch built bucket

plastic is about a buck for 1' x 6'.  although I'm not sure about whither you should use the plexiglass.....depends on what your helmet is made of, because if the material is too light, the plexiglass will make the helmet want to fall forward.

Re: scratch built bucket

Oh yeah, good old stuff paper maché...love that stuff, so much fun to make weird things with.  Made a Nefertiti hat out of it a few years ago for Halloween....man my neck was freakin sore by the end of the night trying to keep my head from tipping over backwards.....lol.
