Made a mould

I have made a mould of the helmet using “Plaster of Paris” and bits of paper kitchen towel. Have just painted the inside with some paint I found in the shed, to make it “water tight” to get it ready for the next stage:

Filling it up with…. the same “Plaster of Paris” so I get the original shape back again and I can start shaping the leather that’s going to cover the helmet to make it authentic !!  🙂

Got ear muffs

Got the first part for this headset. Bought M3 earmuffs.

A class 5+ model with a attenuation of 30db I think it was:

They look massive at the moment, but remember that the helmet will go over my head, and probably cover the red rings of the earmuffs. Plus all of this will be covered in leather, including the earmuffs.

To be continued………..
