    Re: AntMan's Second Cardboard Scratch Build

    Love this thread. On the strength of this, and WOF's fantastic templates, I'm on my second bucket. The first being a scaled down Jango for my 7 year old daughter. Mine will be a Boba. Doing the dome at the moment. Never knew sanding could be so therapeutic.

    Re: AntMan's Second Cardboard Scratch Build

    This is by far, the BEST tutorial I have ever seen. I have never made anything like this but this thread gives me confidence. I can't wait to start. I wanna see this thing finished. Its been like 8 months since an update, I hope Antman is OK.

    Hey Antman. One question. If you only had the carboard like the ones you get when you buy a new T.V., how do you cut the ear piece the way you did and then sand it????

    Re: AntMan's Second Cardboard Scratch Build

    Hi, I'm new here. Happened on the tutorial on instructibles, which led me to TDH and this thread. Antman, you did a great job with this tutorial, not to mention WoF's great templates. I'm just wondering if there's gonna be more though, since the last update seems to have been quite a while ago.

    Great work Ant, your pics helped to answer a lot of questions.

    Re: AntMan's Second Cardboard Scratch Build

    Hey Ant,

    What specifically is that material that you are using? Is it a form of art-board? I have seen material like it used in packaging, usually molded to hold parts but have never seen it out where you can just pick up a sheet or three.

    I believe it is mat board like the kind used in picture framing. It is a kind of highly compressed cardboard.

    I got mine at hobby lobby, but you can usually get some at any framing store.

    I got mine at an art supply store. I think that's the two places you usually find them at: art supply stores and framing stores.

    Just went in and asked for 2mm thick cardboard, but might be called different names depending on where in the world you are.

    Re: AntMan's Second Cardboard Scratch Build

    That's because 1) the picture you refer to has two layers of board, one's the inner layer for the helmet, and another layer for the "face" or "mask" portion, the picture is where he's gluing the two together; and 2) there's also the inner dome ring Antman used to get the hemet shape right, which is a roughly circular flat piece of board, to which the sides of the helmet is shaped when it's being bent. He just cut out the middle of the circle once the sides are glued in place.

    Go through this tutorial in a bit more detail and you'll see what he did. Good luck if you're making your own too, vode.

    Hi Antman! I am still new to the forums on TDH and after seeing your first helmet walkthrough I decided to start my own build, I am currently halfway through it. I just wanted to say you're doing an awesome job and I hope to see more of your incredible work! Thanks for inspiring me!

    Hello AntMan,

    This thread is a real inspiration for me, i just printed the templates and will be beginning the build in a few minutes (hoping to have it done in a month or two/three).

    thanks.

    Re: AntMan's Second Cardboard Scratch Build

    I was thinking on making a carboard helm but I'm not sure. How hard is it to make the dome?

    I'm having a go at making this. So far so good. I'm about to start on the ears so fingers crossed.

    Is Antman going to finish this tut ?

    DarmanSkirata, the stuff he's using is non corrugated cardboard that can be bought at most craft stores and framing stores.
