my name is Maikel and i'm new on this forum. So far i love it ! I'm a big Mandalorian / Boba Fett fan.
I've seen allot of great builds and helmets and i started 2 days ago on my own. I've never ever ever done anything like this before so most what i'm doing is what i find on the internet and just try it.
So far i love to work on my little project. The only problem i have is that just the basic shape looks i.m.o. like **** .
I have no idea if at the end of the progress, the bondo and sanding part, it will look good enough...
Below you can see some pictures of the project.
cutting the 2.1mm cardboard is hell... it's so hard to cut it... not sure maybe i'm doing something wrong allready haha
But look ! have the basic shape! i was / am so happy with that. (yes it fits)
So i made the first stage of the dome today..
Found out at this stage that i kinda f*cked up the beginning of the bucket.
I've been following antmans post (this guy got some serieus skills!!!) http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/f23/f...rdboard-23159/
It seems like he made the 2 sides come together in the front of the bucket and not like me in the back... (****)
so i have this in the back:
If i look at other WIPs they all look so clean and smooth, when i look at mine... i love it but i don't have the same WOW feeling you know.
So i'm just wondering the things i do "wrong" now, can you still perfect them at the end??
Thx and i'll keep posting things as i'm going on. (unless its better to start again then i'll start again)
