    [Gemini Khan] Iron Man Helmet Build (pics heavy)

    Here we go, I've been active on THERPF but that's my first thread here.
    I'll let my pics make the talk

    Enjoy

    The helmet was first created on a flat template on photoshop using sideshow bust as visual reference, I then moved the template to a sintra sheet and then I cut it and started to shape it.
    Other materials used in the process where milliput, bondo and final tamiya putty to cover little holes and dents.

    It's been an awfully difficult and time spending job, but the final result was really worth it.
    I'm really glad with the way it turned out.

    Hope you guys like it.
    For any questions you might have, please go ahead and ask, I'll reply as throughly as I can

    Ok, the first cast you see, was pulled from a mold that didn't turn out pretty good.
    But I had to give it as a present so I couldn't even fix it...didn't have time...I went on to paint it, hurrying that too...and put lights in.
    I'll post the pics of the new mold and cast in the next post under this one

    wow this is good.

    p.s. Armored Artichoke you don't need to quote ten pics when he posted them right before, it takes up a lot of room.

    ****, that's some nice work.

    I'm currently doing an Iron Man helmet that I bought as a raw cast, and I'll definitely be referring to this thread for comparisons. Great job!!

    Re: [Gemini Khan] Iron Man Helmet Build (pics heavy)

    and is there any other material because sintra is a preety penny and i dont want to spend that much on it so is there any other material?

    Re: [Gemini Khan] Iron Man Helmet Build (pics heavy)

    Well, if I remember correctly.. in the movie he says "Hotrod red"

    bryce, actually i wouldn't know about any other material like sintra. You could try with the black big trash cans. Buy those and then cut them. They should work almost the same...
