Try your local hobby shop and ask if they have/know a plastic model builder, that would do it.

I drilled mine out with a big drill bit. They drill out easily, and you can get them to a decent weight.

I love F1, so I have a lot of information of this kind of things. If you need inspiration for your helmets you can check this site to see different models.

If you need an opinion about a model you can DM me and I would be glad to help you!

Do you have any pics of how you mounted it after you drilled it out?

I want to get one of the ebay ones but want to make sure i can get the weight down and still be able to use it.. Also- Is the scale (size) correct?

Thanks

I'd have to take a pic, but I just shoe gooed it to the body.

The helmet is virtually the same size as a Tamiya helmet
