design your pattern. in the pics i show the pieces and how many are needed but keep in mind that there are two sides of your helmet. ok once you have all of your pieces glue them all along the front seam. then spread them apart and put a thick bead of glue along the inside so it stays spread apart.

Step 3: Connect Uper and Lower Jaw and Crests

Well, what if some people have orc sized heads? Hmmm?

Very nice build by the way!

isnt ther a strap that goes around half of the helmet

You should use a photo of your actual build in the intro--that's the "thumbnail" photo used for browsing, etc. That intro photo's your best advertising (people do make snap judgments on what they'll view...)
