I really do like the DPM pattern, though, one of my all-time favourites.
Camo_fiend wrote:Okay, dumb question, but when you're cutting scrim to put on the helmet should it be cut circular like the cover? I'm trying to scrim mine up for display and it's frustrating me because I can't quite figure out how to wrap it over the outer cover before I fasten it.
And can't you use the innertube from a tyre to hold the netting in place? I've seen the innertube as well as black gaffer tape like what's on your helmet before, does it matter which?
Just want to make sure it looks like it's supposed to, hence all the questions.
