    The Best side view photo of Guy Manuels Discovery helmet is in this photo where the robots are spray painting. If you could find this photo in a SUPER HIGH QUALITY version. Then you'll be set with a guide for modeling the side of his discovery helmet! Just thought I'd point that out.

    Re: Discovery Era Helmet - Join The Project - Pre Order

    Model Updates:

    As we promised. We've adjusted proportions of the helmet to better match reference material we got our hands on. Thank you everyone for the feedback, keep it coming!

    Helmet on left is the new version, Helmet on right is old version. We will be providing a new 3D viewer for you guys once we finalize a few more changes.





    Electronics Updates:

    Version 2 components have been ordered, expect some updated photos to come in the next week or so.



    Other Updates:

    Front page has been updated and restructured.



    Thanks again,
    Devin and Kellee

    ricar27, Thats a great one too! That helps with modeling GM's Helmet where it splits! Great photo! Now does anyone have that spray painting photo in high quality? I know ifcwdjd has a copy of that article. So I'll see if i can find his scanned copy of it. Great work everyone!

    Alright I found it! Credit of photos goes to ifcwdjd! Photos aren't at full image size. For original large image size go to ifcwdjd's page and download the second bulk folder: http://ifcwdjd.tumblr.com/post/30216...icle-downloads
    I added another one that I think is another really good reference photo. Its of the front view of the helmet. Hope these help!

    Nathan do you have any other pictures, side ways on guy-man, I'm worried about this red circled detail popping to much out on boongose design.



    Plus I'm in time to modify mine...


    Any updates on Thomas?

    Re: Discovery Era Helmet - Join The Project - Pre Order

    NathansPROPS and Ricar27,

    Thank you both for the pictures! Last night we focused on the side view of the helmet. Tonight will be front view, so we should be able to address the red circled area!

    How far out do you feel it should stick, percentage wise compared to now? We will look through all the reference photos you guys supplied as well.

    This is the photo we used as a reference for the circled height:





    As for Thomas' helmet, we will focus on that once Guy's Helm is good to go. We feel it is already close to being correct, so hopefully not much work left! (We always say that, and then there ends up being a bunch.)


    Thanks again for all the help and we should have a new update tonight to address some of these things,
    Devin & Kellee

    Re: Discovery Era Helmet - Join The Project - Pre Order



    Some how it looks different on both... maybe its shadows... from your model and the photo you posted it looks pretty much the same... but from the picture I posted it looks a bit thinner...

    Can somebody else chime in?

    You have to keep in mind that the helmets where hand made. So the sides may not be perfectly mirrored. Also, that back piece was detachable. So, maybe, the fit was not aligned that well.
