How to Make a Lord of the Rings Helmet out of Sheet Metal: Part 3

In this part of the tutorial we finish the making of the helmet.


Today I was mounting a "chin strap"..

I cut a piece leather to the right length, then I put on a buckle and riveted it to the helmet.


I also started with, using my multi-tool, to carve out the pattern of the so-called wings. The original plan was to cut out the pattern from a separate piece of sheet metal, but I'm just too lazy.


Today I sanded and polished the helmet. And started to paint the pattern on the wings using kind of unhealthy paint.


After that, I used rivets to attach to now now completed neck guard. It consists of a piece of chainmail, attached to a leather sheet.

And after doing so, the helmet is done!

Now the only thing remaining is th put it on its wooden stand.
