These plans enable you turn recycled card into a futuristic armored Ranger Helmet. Just print the templates on paper, stick them to card, cut them out, match the numbers and attach the parts together. The helmet is scaled to fit an adult with a head circumference of 60cm but you can make smaller helmets by scaling down the templates when you print - check our FAQ page for details. The templates also come with instructions for an internal head band that can be adjusted by moving the fixing points to get a snug fit. The construction principles are the same as our other masks but with this helmet it helps to have a little spacial awareness for the final assembly process. If you can identify and match shapes you will do fine. Please keep in mind that the finished helmet is something that you have made yourself, from card and will not protect your head if you decided to conquer a galaxy whilst wearing it.
First time purchasing one of Wintercroft Masks. I loved it. It took me a bit longer than I expected buy I enjoyed the making a lot. I think the guidelines could be a bit clearer in terms of how to handle the layouts in bigger formats or how you could save time by placing correctly the layout on the final material. The piece inside wasn't clear for me how to put it, so I decided to use foam stripes to adjuts the mask to my head size
I love doing this helmet, it's a bit tricky but is very fun.
Impressive design and straightforward construction. I'd recommend super glue, not glue stick, for the tabs which would have saved me a lot of drying time and is much stronger anyway. Don't try to tape it together which I'm not convinced is even possible with some of the pieces on this mask. This was my first of these masks and I'm really glad I stumbled across this site.
Damn awesome mask
I love this helmet. It's futuristic and sleek looking. Putting it together was pretty standard Wintercroft assembly (easy and intuitive) up until the under-eye guards where it got a little confusing. Since the geometry of the under-eye spacers didn't really match the geometry of the helmet in a way that was immediately obvious to me (even after reading the instructions two or three times), I just made up an arrangement that just made sense to me. The shaded patterns on the spacer and on the guard were helpful but didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I'm really looking forward to painting this one and trying it out!
Hi JM - Fletch here. Good to hear from you. Thanks for continuing to build our Masks and for your feedback.
