    Hi all,

    After finishing my first scratch build, I wasn't completely satisfied with it, because it had been before I knew all the itty-gritty details about the Boba Fett helmet.
    Anyhow, I have begun it!

    I will allow the pictures to tell the rest (up to now)
    (pic heavy!)

    I began with the inside support:


    And proceeded to cover it up:


    I cut out the area for the cheeks:


    I decided to use some 1mm sintra for the outside because it sands unlike cardboard...but we'll see how that goes


    Advice and criticism is very much appreciated.

    Nice clean build so far. A couple things I noticed to watch have a little gap at the front of the dome base that may give you some trouble, also you might want a little bit of a lip around the dome base (outer layer) to give you something to slide the dome in, as well as surface to glue.
