I finally wanna do this for my SEK figure.
I already got the Medicom Cobra helmet:
I took out the helmet straps and removed the visor first
The strap I will replace by a Hot Toys GIGN helmet strap. The original Cobra helmet strap was just too small to fit a head sculpt which is not bald
Yes, I was stupid enough to damage a GIGN helmet. Superglue dripped on the visor. I got replacement, but it was expensive and strenous to track down
My only problem now is putting this cloth cover. Anyone any tips, advices etc.?
I went ahead and bought cloth in two different greys. 100% cotton, 140gr/m²
I decided for the lighter grey
Next step measuring dimensions
Sewing the base
Making it a better fit
Cutting out the head phone section
I wasn’t completely satisfied with the outcome, so I borrowed a sewing machine and bought grey thread to do it again. It looks much cleaner now.
Painted the helmet black tohave no green color shining through anywhere
Applied a velcro patch on the back
I decided to glue the cover onto the helmet. Thinking of how to do it lately I couldn’t come up with anything better
Problem now that I need to figure out how to do the earphone cover properly. This project will probably be a bit delayed again.
