One thing i learned was how to make sharp edges on a whiles sup smooth dividing the surface.those would be the coloured edges on the model. Many hours went into this model in 3d to get it right, as reference material i used the anovos model pictures, won't show because i probably allready broke a few copyrights by doing this......their stuff is amazing but out of my reach financially.so a diy is required. Fire up the laptop and of we go
Ones done i will look into making the lenses and how to darken them, I also want to try slush casting so now to find a "cheap silicon" etc...so next update will mould making perhaps?
Plexi glass arrived so i made a paper template that i than cut out of the plastic followed by glueing it in and taping it of to smear shut the gaps
Figured i need gravity in my favour so i build a rig to move the helmet about and added a extra rim on inside so the resin won't drip out later (well in theory)
