being new to all this i thought i would post a few pics of my newly started boba fett helmet scratch built from aluminium.still a long way to go mind you.will post more as i progress
Thats pretty dang cool!!!!! Keep it up!!
Looking good so far!
Are you doing full welds on the cheeks and stuff or just tack welds?
I hear it takes some pretty decent skills to weld aluminum correctly.
answer to the question about doing full welds on the cheeks. i am only tack welding it together to try and keep it from distorting see as i had a few problems shaping the cheeks and getting them to stay in place etc.just going to fill any gaps with filler and sand down.as for welding aluminium correctly ,yeah it does take a fair amount of skill .any dirt or oil etc on the aluminium then it has a habit of collapsing in on you which aint much fun and as i said before has a tendency to pull and distort when fully welded.cheers paul
