Prototype for Leather Helm

Post  Diabolus Vile on Wed Jun 10, 2009 7:44 am

Need help with this. I cut out all the pieces for a cardboard prototype and it says to cut out 6 triangular dome sections and 4 reinforcing sections. This doesn't make sense I think because I thought the reinforcing strips cover where the sections join. Am I missing something?

There are six sections, so there is one long strip (the 14" x 1 and 3/8") that goes in the center from front to back (it covers two joints). The four smaller strips cover the other 4 joints. As for the circular piece in the center, I guess it just covers them all up. A bird's eye top view diagram is below if it helps:

I understand now, I saw the center strip and figured it was that piece that borders the bottom edge you see in the picture. Now I'm wondering where those are listed. Thanks for explaining it. The reference pic is a little off.

Alright finished it, progress here. It is a little clunky, slides around on my head, and rigid, but that's because it's made outta dang cardboard. I'm going to substitute certain parts for maybe chainmail, and customize the cheek pieces.
