Excellent design. Is there any way to have it print in fewer pieces for larger-bed printers? I haven’t measured, but it almost looks like the main helmet body could be printed in two separate pieces on a CR-10s printer.

the color is khaki and black and the emblem is bronze

A master job! Love it! Will be painting soon, does anyone care to tell what paint they are using, always the tough part


I have not painted my helmet yet.

How much does it cost to print something like this?

In materials...It costs about a spool and half. So about $37.

What the best glue to use to put it together model or crazy glue

depends on the plastic you use. If you are using PLA then super glue or Weld-on 4. For ABS an acetone slurry with ABS works well.

just to let you know your files rock it was my printer head that was causing all the trouble i am now printing it in 3 bits on my cr10 with out issues thanks again for the share

they are a great set of file but unfortunatly i am unable to print the i am getting a lot of holes in the print is thier any chance you can thicken the walls or check the origonal files


Nice Model i just wish i had a 3d printer to print it or had the money to order it from someone currently the only 3d printing i can do is at my Local Library which i can only print in a three hour time slot.

Incredible Helmet, one of my favourites!! Great work!!

Thanks. I grew up with Battlestar and Buck Rogers. So when someone asked if I could make a viper pilot helmet I had to do it.

have you tried doing the buck rogers one yet I bet that would look great

That is a cool helmet I should add that to my list of makes.

Yes!! me too, those were great series, I'm seriously thinking on making a Viper Pilot cosplay LoL, the Colonial Blaster is here too in thingiverse, you know what will be great? a Cylon Centurion armor, I've trying to design it but have not have the time, I have an old Pepekura file of a Centurion Helmet which I've converted to STL, let me find it and I'll post it, maybe if you have the time you can do your magic on that one too.

Thank you for sharing!!

I've found the Cylon Helmet, I've already upload it as: Cylon Centurion Helmet, Hope you have the time to do something with it (If you agree of course), it would be great, thanks!!

Awesome you have certainly improved on it and made it look awesome, cheers Jace

Your model helped a lot Thanks!

Thank you so much Pete, you've got serious skills!
I'm very excited to print it, this is going to be killer.

No problem. Let me know how it turns out.

Looking forward to printing one on my Z18!
I will keep you posted!!

Awesome. I have not printed this yet. I'm looking forward to your work.

I was hoping it would fit as a one piece though no :-(
Some assembly required :-)

how long did it take to print

Total print time was about 68-72 hours.
