hey guys, i just found this website and i started to make my mando armor/helmet...so far wizard of flights templetes are spot on...thanks!!! couple of quick questions though...the spackle i am using...will it be strong enough? seems to crack a little but wasnt sure if after sanding/primer/paint that would stop? i saw a youtube video and thats what they said to use....should i have used bondo? also i have seen a few helmets after being fiberglassed/resined....will this make it significantly stronger? since i am making the basic helmet out of cardboard i was wondering if it can be reinforced enough to not shatter if someone knocks on the top of the helmet which is probably bound to happen....also...would a thin layer of bondo or spackle on the whole helmet dried and sanded be worth doing just to maybe make it a little harder before it is painted?
this is basically my first attempt and if successful i might make another out of plastic like i am doing with the chest and shoulder armor etc....looking forward to this halloween so i can pimp my mando gear but i want to make it as nice looking as my limited skills can
thanks for any help
