    4 Weeks Ago - Feb 26, 2015, 1:42 PM - Rocketman242 Scratchbuilt Cardboard Boba Fett Helmet #1

    I've never done anything like this before. I wasn't planning on posting pictures of my build but, seeing other peoples pictures and how they do things has helped me out so very much I figured I would at least share some of my pics I've taken. I'm using RafalFett's templates. Please let me know what you think.
    I have the helmet assembled and used fiberglass on the inside.

    The ear pieces and range finder pieces have their first pass of filler and sanding.

    Wow! Your build looks awesome! The only thing I would change is the dent, as it sits too deep into the dome. Keep up the great work!

    Looking good! The only thing I'd suggest with my limited experience is that you make sure to remove the paper templates before applying bondo or filler, as you might have peeling problems with the thin paper glued onto the cardboard.

    RafalFett, When you say too deep you mean the depth of the dent, correct? not the position? I haven't done anything except have the hole for the dent and a "backer" for the dent for when I fiberglassed it. Thanks for the input! I will post more pics as I progress.

    The dent position looks fine, but the dent should be glued to the outside of the dome and not to the inside (it is best visible in your first image in the 1st post).

    This is looking really nice. I love your attention to detail. I've been lurking and working on a scratch build for several months now based on wof templates, but your work on the rafalfett one has me second guessing myself. Maybe I'll start up a thread on my progress as well.
