Captain America: M1 Helmet “A” Stencil

This is based on promo stills, auction pics and screencaps from the film. Mine is scaled to fit my ‘toy’ plastic helmet; you may wish to scale this to suit your helmet:

This is designed to fit within the ‘jigsaw’ edges of a 2 x 2 foot foam floor tile:

Because of this, it is slightly smaller than the ‘real’ prop shields. The proportions are as accurate as I can make them, with my limited reference material, so it can be enlarged, should you wish to do so.

Perhaps most famous as the villainous Ash in Alien, but also well-regarded for Father Vito Cornelius in The Fifth Element and the older Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit / LOTR movies.

Happy Birthday, Joe Pantoliano!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on September 12, 2016 by Staff Writer

Perhaps best known as the traitorous Cypher from The Matrix, Joe Pantoliano is also the abrasive Teddy in Memento, Cosmo from The Fugitive and US Marshals, and (my favorite) the dapper Eddie Ventro in Congo.
