    Hi guys!

    I have a small problem with my Boba helmet. I bought it of etsy and well my budget isnt that high so I went for the cheapest bucket that still looks good. But its a Mandalorian helmet so it comes without the dent.

    I was thinking of ways that I can fix that and so far my plan is to use a dremel to make the dent, and if it needs to go deeper I will fill out the inside with bondo and then carve into that.

    What do you think guys, is this an ok way to do it?

    (sorry for my bad english haha :P )

    Templates located on the board will have a piece you can use to build the dent. You might be able to build one in styrene, smooth the seams with putty, and affix it into a hole in the helmet. Then epoxy around the backside (inside of helmet). This would let you make a pretty accurate dent and relieve you of the hassle of trying to carve bondo accurately (it sucks)

    Just an idea that popped to mind when I read your post. Maybe it will help. Good luck!

    Check out this tutorial. About halfway down the page. It gives good instructions on how you can make the dent.
