Use it as a reference when you ask for my help (while building [link] (the helmet)), so i can provide quick answers. Here you may see all of the helmet's parts in their relative positions. This will be part of the complete guide.

Here's a little guide:

The Skull
Put the Lower nape around the Support, then the Upper part (DON'T glue any of this parts). Glue the Locks to the Support, and be sure both nape parts move, ONLY the Locks shouldn't move. Glue the Support to the Skull and again be sure the nape parts still move. Paste the Lower lip to the Skull.

The Face
Put the T-shaped part of the sliders inside the Skull with the O-shaped pointing to the front. Put the Face in place, put a mark inside the O so you can make a hole later.
Paste the Face fitters and the Eyes to the Face. Remember to leave a gap over the eyes so you can see through it (about 3mm).
Screw the Sliders to the Face using propper screws, nuts and washers.

Well that's pretty much it, feel free to ask if you have any doubt. You can see some reference pictures of my helmet at [link]

I cant understand how the support and the locks work :( I already made the Skull and the Nape parts

Well they're just locks they should not move, they are there just to keep the moving parts together.

If you use heavy paper (225grs) it won't be strong enough, you must use at least one lay of cardstock. You're wellcome to write in spanish here.

Si usas papel pesado (255grs) no quedara lo suficientemente duro, debes usar al menos una capa de carton. Eres bienvenido a escribir en español aqui.

Download the PDF at [link] there are some pictures of the open faceplate. Be sure to check the PDF, since the preview has not a very good quality.

Úsenlo como referencia para pedir ayuda (mientras construyen [link] (el casco)), para poderles dar una respuesta rápida. Aquí pueden ver todas las partes del casco en sus posiciones relativas. Esto será parte de la guía completa.

He aquí una pequeña guía:

La Calavera (Skull)
Coloque la parte inferior de la nuca (Lower Nape part) alrededor del soporte (Support), luego la parte superior (NO usar pegamento en ninguna de estas partes). Pegue los candados (Locks), y asegúrese de que ambas partes de la nuca se muevan, SOLAMENTE los candados (Locks) no deben moverse. Pegue el soporte (Support) a la calavera (Skull) y de nuevo revise que las piezas de la nuca todavía se muevan. Pegue el labio inferior (Lower lip) al cráneo (Skull).

La cara (Face)
Coloque la parte en forma de T de las barras de desplazamiento (Sliders) en el interior del cráneo (Skull) con la forma de O apuntando hacia el frente. Ponga la cara (Face) en su lugar, ponga una marca dentro de la O para que pueda hacer un agujero más tarde.
Pegue los ajustadores de la cara (Face fitters) y los ojos (Eyes) a la cara. Recuerde que debe dejar una rendija sobre los ojos para que pueda ver por ella (alrededor de 3 mm).
Atornille los deslizadores (Sliders) a la cara (Face) usando los tornillos tuercas y arandelas apropiadas.

Bueno, eso es todo, no duden en preguntar si tienen cualquier duda. Pueden ver algunas fotos de referencia de mi casco en [link]

This helmet and suit are awesome and have been my inspiration to build my own!
I've downloaded the pepakura file, printed it, folded, glued, and assembled most of the helmet, but at this point what I have are about 6 large pieces that I am not sure how to fit together (there are no more numbered tabs to glue). Any advice? What should I do to get them to fit into each other properly (so I don't accidentally put a piece in the wrong spot, or glue something upside down)?

oh thats helpful <33
my question is what materials did you use for everything?
ScannerJOE Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The helmet is made almost completely of slim (3mm) corrugated cardboard. Only the face is made of cardboard with few layers of mache to cover the joins and to make it stronger.

I covered the interior with silicone and the exterior with water diluted white glue for finishing. Then i have applied silver spray paint and then the respective colors (red/gold).

White disposable plates for eye screens. Galvanized wire for sliders. two 3 volt high-intensity leds, slim electric copper wire and two AA batteries.

Check the helmet page for further reference.
