    Feb 21, 2015, 6:49 AM - Another Boba Fett Build - first try #1

    Hey folks, of course it did not take me too long gathering information on the boba fett helmet. So I just started right away.

    I used the template of the board member wizardofflight - just chose his for no particular reason!

    ( http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/b...mplates-10497/ )

    I used corrugated cardboard as you will see...
    Now my question is, is it even suitable to use resin and bondo on this kind of cardboard, or will it in the end turn out sloppy?

    Here are some pictures of my helmet so far:

    Please don't mind the "rangefinder" it was just a piece of cardboad which i added for the picture!

    Thank you in advance for any suggestions or constructive criticism.

    I'm no expert, but I see no reason why it wouldnt take resin or bondo, it looks solid ....you just might need a bit more to get it smooth. Looks like a fantastic start to me anyway....good luck with the process

    Just wanted to share some more picture of my progress on my bucket!

    Took care of the earpieces and gave the helmet 3 layers of resin. Just take a look and be welcome to comment

    I realized it's probably not your final color scheme, but the black and dark brown really work together. Very menacing.

    since I am planning a boba helmet, i might keep this colour scheme in mind for a future mando helmet project!
