Now an unlocked version of the IRONMAN HELMET is included in a zip with other parts of the suit at [link] you can see what's in the zip here

The helmet is fully functional, it is a high detailed papercraft based on a laser scanned model found at [link] . It's part of my MARK III and MARK IV Cosplay suit.

Here are a few tips to build it right:
1. You can use a different material for the eyes, I have used the bottom of a disposable plate.
2. There are two little cones where you might install two 3volt high intensity leds, and place two AA batteries between the eyebrows.
3. Leave some gaps between the eyes and above of them so you can see through them, it's not much but you can see through "scanning". And be sure there is no light reflected from the leds back to your eyes or you wouldn't see anything at all.
4. Use galvanized wire to build the sliders and screw them to the face using flat head screws, nuts and washers.
5. Install a magnetic lock behind the mouth for instant lock when the face fall in place.
6. Join all the (helmet's) nape parts using two paralell ribbons

To wear it slide the (helmet's) nape parts up, insert your head slowly watching your ears, once inside slide the (helmet's) nape parts down.

To open the face, lift and slide back.

sorry dude
im actually pretty pee'd about this pattern

no joining lines areas or assembly instructions.

i have a handfull of parts, certain shapes and structures
now i have to interlock them, sort them with two hands.
fumble jumble falls apart

i cant see through paper to see where it all connects, if it connects , and how it connects
the 5 main assembly parts dont seem to have any tags, so you cant attach them.

i have wrecked my brain about this one all night.
usually they are easy to figure out.
i gave up.

you have an instruction manual about how to add lights and swing arms
but how about a manual on how to put your iron man helmet together?
please help.

I designed this pattern thinking on pasting it to corrugated cardboard, so most tabs wouldn't be useful there. Think of it like building it on foamy and you'll get my idea. If you want to use regular paper or corrugated carboard you'll have to add tabs using regular paper and glue.

sorry for the angry posts, just thought i could make a bad ass helmet with all the nifty parts for a comic show,, then ran out of time,, and had to make another design.
its all down to materials , im still relitivly new to the art so im learning,, foam is new for me.
