This helmet was a birthday present and tribute to a friend of mine, Les, from his brother Jim. Les would have been 30yrs old now, but passed away 3 years ago. A Lewis Hamilton replica helmet was requested becaude he was such a fan of Lewis Hamilton. On top of the helmet is a personal message from Jim to Les and is a fitting tribute to his much loved brother and the helmet will be displayed in the family home.
Helmets are generally quite awkward to design and paint because every part of the surface is a compound curve. I have developed a method of ensuring straight and parallel lines when needed, which makes life easier for me!
