Its been a while, and I have been painting and building stuff off and on while building our house, but the lastest little piece of excitiment is getting together with like minded people over at the rpf forum.
So here is reference pic of the helmet that we are going to make. The base of the helmet is a M1 Vietnam US helmet with a custom fabric cover and extra armor with a few greeblies, and rubber band looking straps.
Its a M1 Vietnam era helmet, You can check on my blog Cannys Gambit if you want to make sure you have the right one.
Started off with the torch scaling if anyone want to pipe in with perspective of the scaling that would be great. scaled from the existing helmet cover and the size of the m1 helmet.
Design of the torch attached to side of helmet, the right one is the most correct.
Made it so it would actually function as a torch, from the above render made the clip 3mm longer and changed the front end.
Painted up and with the Helmet and box on the side of helmet (also did a sbs of the prep and painting on the blog and RPF.)
So thats where Im at, Just started nutting out the armor on the helmet and the cloth cover with the endor style baffels.

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
