    My brother has been a welder for over 40 years and I thought I would do this for him. I took the RS4 – 40 figure and added the welding helmet to it. I made the helmet from Magic Sculpt. I first made a wooden helmet slightly smaller then I needed. I spread Vaseline over the wood in order to get the Magic Sculpt to release from the wood after it hardened. Then applied the Magic Sculpt over that. With a little care it came off.

    The pictured helmet was used to create the helmet.

    Nice work and a fitting tribute to your brother. I like the addition of the American/Canadian pinbadge.

    Thanks guys. The pinbadge is the International Sheet Metal Workers Union emblem. It covers workers in Canada and the U.S. I am a 40 year member.

    Thanks guys. Construction workers do not get a lot of respect, and thought it was time to remember them. I really like liked the "Molly McGuire" bust about the Irish coal miners too.
