First I don't have the money for $300 worth of plastic cast and mold materials, I did some shopping around and that stuff ain't cheap.
Second I have improved my creative skills in working with plastics.
And third, I just wasn't happy with the clay model.
All weekend and friday afternoon I have been working on helmet and spray painting other parts.
I got the entire helmet construction done with primer coat and one white coat.
Tomorrow I will do another white coat and then a clear gloss protectant final coat.
This a concept art picture of the helmet look I was going for and the original helmet from a kids toy I found on CraigsList.com
