49ers Helmet – American NFL

What else do you need at a pre-match party in Wembley Stadium? That’s right!  A giant American NFL 49ers Helmet.

When we were asked to produce an exact scale model of an NFL American Football Helmet to display in Wembley Stadium we couldn’t wait to get started.  It took us less than 2 weeks from start to finish.

Using our complete 3D laser scanning system, FROGScan™ we were able to take a range of 3D scans of a sample helmet, which meant we were able to produce a scale model to within 2mm accuracy.

When it came to cutting the 49ers Helmet out of a polystyrene block, our technicians used our state-of-the-art Frog Mill™ CNC Machine, the only machine of its type in Europe.

Once we’d cut the polystyrene shell, we then applied the finishing fiber glass shell, which gives it a very high quality sheen, just like the original 49ers Helmet sample supplied.
