    For those of you awaiting the helmet:

    How do you want me to go about making the ribs along the cheeks? I can make them round, but that may be more time-consuming to build. Square ones may be simpler. What's the word?

    If I'm going to do it...round. I like to make big things once....

    I think one or the other would be cool, it would still have that 30's art decco look, the square might give it a metropolis feel to it.

    Here's something I did a little over 22 years ago (wow, that makes me feel old and predates the movie)

    The helmet was posterboard, laid out by eye and painted gold with window tinting film for eyeholes.

    I got an invite on atuesday for a comic themed costume party on saturday and knocked this out in record time.

    Now...who can name the airplane?

    Could be wrong... but I'm pretty sure it's a Boeing.... Model 100?

    No, although there is (will be?, will have been?*) a Boeing connection.

    The backpack was a converted fire extinguisher. Filled with dry ice and water it managed to freeze my spine while simultaneously failing to produce impressive clouds of vapour.

    *English is sadly lacking in verb conjugations suitable for time travel, to describe things that haven't happened in the past... yet<G>

    Rounded even if harder to build would be closer to the original helmet. I'd go for the rounded even if it took me longer to build the helmet.

    Okay, I'll do them rounded. :)

    Did anything ever happen on the Rocketeer Helmet or did it like so many other models fall by the wayside of the road to paper models?

    It kind of fell by the wayside when I started my Stormtrooper blaster. :oops:

    Just checking. I was thinking about asking Skip how much he would charge to create the Helmet and the rocketpack. I just thought I'd check before starting to spend Christmas money early. Thanks for the reply.

    That's not to say I won't pick it up some time. Probably sooner than later.
