: 1977 Dredd helmet
: Steve Green 01 August, 2018, 08:09:25 PM
Something I started a while ago, then abandoned, then came back to today.

I'd not seen many attempts at the retro helmet as a 3D model/real prop - so thought I'd have a go.

Was quite happy with the result - still needs a couple of tweaks to smooth out some kinks...

That looks pretty good. I’ve thought about trying to get a collection of helmets through the ages/ artists. Did you convert one of the Dredd 2012 helmets?

Cheers,

No, made it from scratch. It's just a 3D render, not a real prop (yet)

👍🏻 I’ve always wondered if I could try convert a Dredd helmet to a Sov Block one but it’s trying to find a block of time to give over for such a project.

A few people use chicken feeders as a base.

Chicken feeders! Interesting, I always admire cosplayers/ prop makers who can repurpose an “everyday “ item into something from their fav comic or film.

Thanks for the link Steve. They are great and is just inspiring me to make the time and go try it. I could end up being a Mr Ben with all the different helmets 😁
I don’t know what they would turn out like and where I’d put them all - maybe a winter project In between finishing the Carlos colouring book, painting up the Strontium Dogs, playing (trying to) Rogue Redux and doing my chores around the house to keep the wife happy 😁.

That looks very convincing, I thought it was real.

That's lovely. I can see it working really well with the 2012 uniform.

Cheers,

the 2012 costume is closer to the 1977 version than it's given credit for.

Would be interesting to do a full-on 1977 version IRL.

I always thought the shoulder pads were very reminiscent of early depictions of Dredd - the uniform must have changed while Dredd was on the moon / crossing the Cursed Earth...

Around then, yeah.

I agree, though I'm unsure if this was a deliberate choice or just a coincidence.

Always assumed it was a coincidence born of the same desire i.e. to make it all a bit streamlined and stress the 'biker' aspect.

From what I recall, the original Mad Max was one inspiration for look.

I think it was all coming from that same style - dialled back from the massive shoulder pads.

And at opposite ends of the scale...

Sort of finished blocking out the model, and stuck the Minty lawmaster in there...
