Blitzkin's Thomas Helmet24th Mar 2012, 17:10 #1
Hello, after all i learned from my first attempt at making Guy's helm: http://www.thedaftclub.com/forum/sho...-LEDs-incoming
I decided to start making Thomas helmet, small progress so far, but it will be a way faster build than the first one, with much more quality
here it goes:

Which era you going to try to shoot for?

I still dont know, im not sure about the visor size ( seems like the original has a longer visor, comparing the side views) and the size of my helm seems kinda big for my head
but i was planning on when i began

Can I reccomend something?
Since you are going for the HAA style, I suggest you try out this pep on post number 44:
The pep you are using right now is somewhat outdated: Not only was it originally intended to be a Era helmet, it also has some accuracy discrepancies. The one In the link is about 95% percent accurate to the HAA style of Thomas Bangalter's helmet.
Either way, i'm sure your helmet will be awesome!

Its looking great!
Dont forget to check if the pep crank mentioned needs to be resized though
And a tip for thread linking: If you put #44 at the end of the thread link it will jump to the post

Oh well, when i got the pepakura i was so excited to build that i didnt notice it wasn't the right one
the scale of mine is also off, i'll have to redo this.
so.. what shud i do with this pep helmet? D:
is it possible to turn it into a Encore version?

Well if you are interested, you should try to tackle thehelmet. People usually build the HAA era helmets , so rarely do the era helmets get made. The differences between the Transition Helmets and the helmets are quite drastic, so if you don't want your hard pepping skills to go to waste.....try the helmet.
Heck, why don't you try to make a mold and cast some buckets? I'd sure be interested in a cast, and i'm sure other people would be too. I know your work is top quality.
And yes, you could do an encore version too.

Yeah, that old one is just.....blah.
Sorry you had to restart again due to my suggestion, but this helmet will give you a better end product, i'm sure of it. Looking forward to your build!
