Federaton Trooper Helmet replica
The iconic helmet worn by the Federation Guards in Blakes 7.

This replica is made using the correct JB climbing helmet (vintage), acrylic bands and the mask is a first generation fiberglass cast of a screen used mask.
The round vent on the front is as close as I can get to the original 'tea strainer' used on the original ones.
The badges on the helmets were all different, as they were made using a belt buckle which had a piece of thin copper sheet glued onto and then hot glue was dribbled over the front to give the effect, painted black and then highlighted with silver.
