    looks good... what material are you using? I want to try making one as well and need to get some supplies.

    Thanks,

    Re: Yet another scratchbuild bucket

    I will be posting more pics on monday, the theory is the same, but the practice.. oh my the practice, bending carboard is a little tricky, but use the water spray metod that antman used, actually his tutorial is pretty helpfull, im just a begginer at this, but hopefully i'll finish this project, by the i used a lot the glue gun for the inside to make a strong hold, and on the outside wood glue (and a lot a lot of patience).... i guess that's for now, any questions just feel free to ask

    For starters.. (thats for the basic shape)
    1.cartboard (be mindfull that it need to bend easilly, but steal has to be strong)
    2.glue gun (and a lot of silicon tubes ^_^) you dont want to run out on the middle of the build.
    3. wood glue
    4. cloth hangers to help you as extra fingers LOL
    5. maybe in some point a helping hand (one glue's, the other grabs)
    6. blowdryer to help you dry the glue (wood and silicon)
    7. Oh yeah the x-acto knife with a lot of blades
    And i guess i said it before: a can full of patience

    Don't sell yourself short buddy... I tried the cardboard thing and, well lets just say it went to recycling?
    I take my hat off to all of you that have the kahunas to do this.

    Keep up the good work

    Re: Yet another scratchbuild bucket

    Looks like you're following the Antman method? Anyway I'm still curious as to what that cardboard is. I'm using grey mattboard.
    But you seem to be getting great results with that brown stuff, it's not corrugated is it?

    Re: Yet another scratchbuild bucket

    No, its not corrugated, that would be a problem in the bending because it cracks, its just a normal cardboard about a 1.5 mm thick, i bought it in a artstore called Blick Art, the sheet is about 1m - 80 cm long, i had to bought 2 (you know for any mistake or something like it)

    Re: Yet another scratchbuild bucket

    I finnally glued the ears and did the angles using the knife process in antman's tutorial, just be extra carefull no to cut one finger ^_^ (i almost did)

    And now... im in the "outside" step of the helmet, and i say outside because the bondo has a really strong smell and the wife would kill me if i did that inside the house ^_^ (Oh by the way... thanks to my beautiful wife on helping me aplying the bondo to the helmet), she was all concentrated aplying that thing like she was decorating a cake (LOL) And be sure you apply enough cream hardener if you are using bondo, because if you dont, it will take days to dry (im saying this because it happend to me, lol), And now, for the pics...
