M1 Helmet Replacement

Post by PizzaMovies on Mon Jul 20, 2009 7:07 pm

Well, seeing as M1 helmets are so rare and expensive I've decided to make use of DP's advice of those skateboard helmets and customize them.



C&C welcome, tell me what ya think!

EDIT: Still kinda "wippish" gonna add another coat of paint and add symbols...

Sweet paint job, really nice!

Oh and another option for helmets is cutting down an firefighter helmet, which is very close to the Fallschirmjäger helmets.

Oh, green gun is just a place holder for the pic, it won't be like that in the real thing such as my future WW2 film.

Oh yeah...I forgot about that... I'm going to post topics of all my factions as I finish them, although they're pretty much all done! Wink


@DP: I'm making a WWII series after Reprisals and it will follow the historical events of the 82nd or 101st Airborne divisions from D-Day to the end of the war.

Dude...If you take the 101st/Easy, then that's going to be a long movie/series. They went all over the Place. Normandy, Bastogne, Holland, Hagenaue, Foy, And then into germany, also the southern parts near the alps.

Yea, but it doesn't mean that he has to do everything super detailed! Wink

But what did Easy do in Hagenau? I visited that village in April and I didn't know anything about it?

It's gonna be a series, and I'm getting rather bored of the 501st, so Reprisals will be more or less a "season finale" and will be continued when I'm through with my WWII series which I've been looking forward to. Smile

I should try that some time! It's a good idea! Oh yeah, and if you don't have a lot of those, you can trim down those racer helmets too.

Well you can buy military helmets at Brickforge.com which is the closest thing to a M1 helmet in lego there is. There currently $1.50 a piece.
