Grenadier Helmet

If you're gonna make it count, might as well do it in classic Jorge style


**I am currently working on some add-ons to this helmet as well as finishing my own build of the helmet to assure quality of the model/design, model wont be available till I complete my build**


Major Features




Unique, Easy-To-Assemble Design.

This helmet was designed to essentially fit together like a 3D puzzle. Almost all of the 30+ Pieces come with alignment pegs that allow each piece to snugly slide together one piece at a time, from the front or from the side. The pieces were divided by color, so that you can paint/finish all the pieces individually before assembly.


Below you can see two pictures, both show how the helmet slides together one piece into another. The first picture show how all the "central" pieces slide together from the front.

The second photo shows that all the "side" pieces slide in from the sides and lock all the rest of the "central" pieces in place.





Additionally this allows to mix and match different helmet customization similar to what you would find in Halo: Reach and now the MCC.

The entire helmet design is based on the Halo 5 "Indomitable" Helmet.


Helmet Accessories

The modular design of this helmet lends itself to include some of the different "Accessories" that you can get in Halo: Reach and MCC. I've included some pics of the features I'm planning on adding.


Here we can see the usual UA variant being available as well as a more bare bones version. Both of which slide into the main cap of the helmet from the side and can be screwed in place if desired.

Here we can see a rough in-progress model of the FC helmet variation.



Visor Insert Features


The inside of the helmet features Guides to hold the visor in place. While the visor can sit on these alone I would recommend a low strength glue or tape to help fasten hit while still allowing you to remove the visor.


Sizing Ring

Model includes a sizing ring to help you scale the helmet to fit over your head. Sizing ring is equal to the size of the throat of the helmet so make it so you can fit your whole head through without slicing your ears off.


Full Visor Resin Kit


This model includes a full kit to help you make a rubber mold capable of casting a resin visor. A resin visor in and of itself will have some reflective properties while more importantly allow you to make the visor see-through and a color of your choice. It also allows for more complex geometries than vacuum forming and makes for a sturdier visor. The visor, baseplate, and mold shell all fit together to ensure that the the model only requires a minimal amount of rubber. The less rubber required, the less it costs and the more reusable the mold and easier the demolding process. Mold shell is designed to be able to flip over and stand flat when pouring in Resin to ensure the top does not leak or pour resin.

Visor Resin Volume: 192 mL

Visor Rubber Mold Volume: 413 mL


You can find a more detailed explanation of the resin casting process in my "Builds" section.


Smooth Ergonomic Interior


This helmet was design to have smooth, spacious head cavity. This allows for the inclusion of whatever interior helmet accessories you want, padding, speakers, fans, etc.

Builds


* I'm currently in the process of completing a build of this helmet and will include lots of info on my experience with the build and any tips I have when tackling the build yourself




What Next?


If you are looking to create you own models like this one feel free to checkout all of my tutorials on 3D modeling and prop making techniques.


If you are looking to purchase the model so that you can print your own you can find it in the store.


Lastly, make sure to check back in every once in a while to see what I've been working on


Thank you for your time
