    Mar 27, 2015, 6:22 PM - My 1st and 2nd helmet (from paper to plastic) #1

    Hello everyone!

    I thought maybe this would be interesting )
    I really like the helmet of Boba Fett and in the process of working on the costume I made helmet based on Pepakura.

    he111-jpghe112-jpghe1123-jpghe1125-jpghe1126-jpghe1127-jpgimg_7235-jpg0267-jpggl9g83vx0me-jpg


    I made a lot of changes, but their was not enough, the helmet came not accurate and a small size, but I believed in themselves and began the second.

    Second helmet doing in size and pictures found on this site +/- a few millimeters

    p,s, and sorry for my bad English )

    What did you use over to cardboard on your keyhole? And what did you use to sand it down? It looks so good, I'm struggling with mine lol

    1 - paper model
    cardboard 0.7mm x 3 layers and PVA glue
    pva_glue_50ml-jpg
    (this glue is absorbed in a cardboard and becomes very firm after drying and perfectly holds a form)

    2 - polyester resin

    (this thing is dangerous to health, I use it because I'm not going to wear a helmet on my head)

    3 - polyester car body filler (I used bodyfine)
    tmelfine-jpg

    4 - grind before installation, because it is more convenient and better result

    (diamond files can be washed in water!)

    5 - install using hot glue and polyester resin with fiberglass

    Didn't fully understand, what I used patterns?

    1st helmet - pepakura, but it's bad, I did a lot of fixes and was unhappy with the result (\/)o_O(\/)

    2nd helmet - patterns and pictures that I found here, I like it + I have experience crafting the first helmet + I learned a lot of good information about the helmet
