Stargate Horus head mechanism

The first thing I had to figure out was building the head mechanism. This allows the head to move up/down, left/right, tilt and have a functional eye iris with light up eyes. One servo at the front of the mechanism allows for head rotation and there is a servo mounting block for the eye iris servos. The iris is held in a machined cup that rotates on a bearing and allows the iris housing to rotate via a servo- as the iris rotates it opens and closes. This helmet will be radio control just like the original movie helmets.

There’s not a lot of room in that head…
