200mm Russian Helmet

    Hey Guys!

    Here is the almost finished 200mm russian helmet. I learned a lot from the German one and this time I used an X-Acto a lot more then sand paper. I am sure there are some things that needs tweaking on it so let me have it!

    I know the edges nees a little more refining and thinning out, but I wanted your opinion on it before putting too much effort into the finish of it.

    Also included a few pic of the helmet on the head as well as one with the german helmet on the head.

    After looking at the pics a little closer it looks like I need to bring the thing that goes down by the ears a little more and shorten the 'visor' part up a tad, what you think?

    Actually, the lip that comes down over the upper ear looks just about right. The front, though, should come out a bit more. At first glance, the Soviet steel pot helmet looks like a wider version of the M1 "steel pot" helmet used by the US armed forces. You've got it going (y)

    Anders, you're really getting the hang of these helmets, that's looking pretty good, just shorten the visor a bit and thin it down which is what you were going to do anyway. Great work!
