    Simply amazing. Considering the materials, what more can be said?

    I think you have a future as a professional prop maker.

    Not yet- I haven't worked on it since Halloween. I've been really busy at home and at work. I still have to finish the rangefinder and then do some more painting. The helmet is totally wearable and I wore it to work on Halloween with the rest of my Fett costume- no problems whatsoever.

    I've already started thinking about next year's costume! It's going to make building a cardboard Fett look like a walk in the park.....

    How about a cardboard ANH Stormtrooper, judging by the excelent job you did on the Fett Helmet, you should have no problem.

    You did great work, especially on the shape.

    I've definitely thought about it- especially a sandtrooper! That way it wouldn't have to have the perfect shiny white finish.

    What I'm actually looking at doing is a Stargate Horus costume- animatronic moving head and all. Ideally a working staff weapon too.... I've got most everything figured out and I already have the servos.

    I also drew up some plans for a cardboard Rocketeer.

    Too many costumes, so little time!

    I'm working on making my rangefinder movable with the possibility of adding a servo later. I haven't attached the ears yet, but from what i've got so far it seems like it should work well.

    That is impressive to say the least. What kind of paint did you use on the cardboard? Did the Bondo stick to the cardboard OK?

    I started making my cardboard bucket today. I was able to bend the cardboard by wetting it just a little and then taping it into place.

    Absolutly amazing. Great workman ship with the materials.
    I wouldnt have ever expected cardboard to work that well.
    I probably would have attempted balsaboard.
    Great work.
