I wonder if you can help me.
I decided to build the boba fett armour and have started with the helmet (maybe not a wise decision lol) and have been on one hell of a learning curve. I started with a pepakura card build and then resined, fiber glassed and primed. As you can see I have a lot of sanding and refilling ahead of me. I have had a bit of an issue in finding a primer that worked well and eventually settled on P38 car body primer, it is ok but goes on a bit thick and non too smooth hence all the sanding I have to do. I have had issues with materials as I am from the UK and the tutorials I followed were mainly USA and the materials mentioned were obviously USA sourced.
I did not enjoy doing the resin and fiber glassing and i am thinking of building the rest of the armour out of foam. I know I can hot glue it together and then PVA glue cover it to harden and seal it, but what primer ( that I can get in the UK) can I use over this, that can be sanded. Also what paint is best to use over the primer that you recommend that will allow for detailed work. Also can you recommend a paint that will go over the P38 primer i used on the helmet that will also allow for detailed work.
Thanks for listening
