Hey Folks after consulting a member on this board and deciding if a thread like this was needed or not I started this thread dedicated to any and all threads that could be useful for scratch-builders. It will contain WIP's, tutorials, and anything that could be helpful for the members here. please feel free to pm with threads that I did not include or for any advice on editing this thread to better help. Well enough talking and more Boba Fett stuff!!!!!
I should also note it will be focusing on helmets made with mat-board also known as crescent board and illustration board it should be 2mm thick or 1/16 of an inch.
first off the tutorials!
these first ones are probably the most well known tutorials
known as antmans builds:
http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/f...rd-23159/First post, first WOF bucket build - cardboard!
this is another tutorial off from instructables:
How to make a cardboard costume helmet
rafalfett's build up which includes his templates and a step by step tutorial on how to get the main helmet built.
And there's quite a bit of WIP's which can be extremely helpful as people troubleshoot, show issues with there buckets that they had to fix and more!
Bobafeind's bucket its based off of boba fetts helmet and he's very descriptive on who, what, and were, he's also a great guy!
Here's terminalfettlers build which is made differently, none the less still very helpful
Noahfetts helmet which is made with a skate helmet as the dome:
goodus10 beautiful bucket with great info, and all.
And here is what the bucket shall look like if completed right:

terminal fettlers bucket cast in resin from his build non painted
well I hope you found this thread useful ,feel free to submit photos via pm or on this thread!
-Small note I mentioned the use of spackling paste, this is incorrect, you should not use it, if you want to wear the helmet. If lets say your like terminal fettler and you are making a mold then perhaps, but I would AVOID it all around.
EDIT- added more threads below. "Removed Spackling paste"
