Elements of the helmet that I will try to incorporate into my model.

Tatemono or datemono (helmet crests)

Fukigaeshi (wing- or ear-like projections on both sides of the kabuto)

Mabizashi (brim or visor)

Nice work. You should put a picture of your final creation as the first picture to give people an idea of what you made
