The article describes a way to build a Punk Helmet with simple components and by following some really easy steps. Rae on to know more on this.
The project starts by drawing the blueprints. Paper template is used in order to make the blueprints of the helmet. The sectioned ribs are made from the ¼” MDF. These can be used to make the structure of the skeleton.
A polystyrene insulation foam has been used to fill the internal parts of the helmet’s skeleton. The next step would be to give the shape to the helmet. Sandpaper is used to give the helmet the shape of a dome.
The foam has been coated with urethane casting resin in order to seal any leakage in the foam. Moreover, it provides a tough yet light weighted shell to work on. The chin and visor sections are built at the end so that a better shape can be achieved.
The visor that has been used in this project is made up of a single piece and installed to the dome shape. To cut the sections, styrene is used. The helmet is now complete and ready for use.
