MAKING SPACEMEN HELMETS

Recommended Posts

I recently acquired this 6" Captain Radar walker and decided to make a helmet for him. They're usually a clear domed helmet similar to the Archer figures but require a 1" diameter. I bought a  yellow wand bubble maker toy that had a long tube with a rounded end. I thought the yellow would add some flair to the figure. The rigid plastic  wand tubes come in yellow, red, blue and green and are only a dollar at Wallmart. I cut it down, contoured the sides to fit the neck with a dremel and polished out the top references to China, etc on the top of the plastic tube with wet/dry sandpaper and Novis polish. There are all kind of helmet style caps on different containers in the stores. Some can be used without any work or just contouring the sides for neck fit.

There will now be a serious 'run' @ Walmart on these items forcing the company to stock huge quantities @ every store.
