    Buy a can of bondo glass or bondo jelly, I even use them as my glue. I use MDF and sintra to make up the parts.
    Where would one find such items as Bondo Glass or Jelly? I have only seen Bondo Spot Glazing Putty.

    Would a fiberglas helmet with all those pieces "glued on" hold up as well as a cast of it? I guess I'm trying to ask...if I make a helmet like so, would I need to cast it for extra sturdyness?

    You can find those bondo products at wal-mart for sure in the automotive section. Don't even waste your money on glazing putty.
    My helmet is extreamly sturdy. I guess if I were to drop it some pieces might end up broken but that could be said for any helmet. You can also go the route of bolting on pieces.
    You have to remember to rough up the sides that will be glued together to ensure a good bond.

    WOW! That turned out great!
    Reminds me somewhat of the helmets being made for the Imperial Commandos.

    Now thats a Custom Mando !!!

    I've seen a few custom Mando's that are nothing more then boba's/Jango's painted a diffrent color sceme, while cool in their own right, to me it just doesn't qualify as a "custom".

    Please I beg you, If you make a set of armor for yourself for this bad boy, get as creative with the armor layout/patterns as you have with the helmet, Mando's to me all had diffrent unique armor plate patterns, if you look around in the EU at some of the drawings you'll find this.

    Outstanding job bro

    Hey! I recognize that circular vent in the rear of the helmet ...

    That's a respiratory mask filter ring isn't it?

    Awesome man !

    Not much else I can say about this bucket that hasn't been already said, however it is one of the hottest things I have seen in the Mando universe. I am in the planing stages for one of my own when I get my standard bucket done.

    Well I'm pretty much done at this point. The paint does not show up as well as I'd hoped in the photos. It has much more of a blue shine. I started with a silver and platinum base coat. From there I highlighted the details with a transparent metalic blue, after that I blended the blue into the platinum by mixing the blue with clearcoat and airbrushing it on overlaping the highlights. From there is was a simple matter of 4 acrylic washes and voila! Tomorrow I need to install the visor properly.
    I'm still working on a binocular that will magnetically fit in place. I've decided agaist the Range Finder because the helmet is "busy" enough at this point, it just doesn't need anymore gizmos.

    Feel free to comment or ask questions, I'll be more than happy to answer them all!

    Thanks for the compliment! I have decided to follow through and complete an entire set of armor to go with the helmet. It will lost likely be more like clone trooper armor than the regular Fett style.

    LOVE IT! It looks like a "HIGH TECH KNIGHT"! Has a little bit of that "NECROMUNGER" (spelling?) feel. The LED is also a nice touch, working whatever, somehow always brings props to life, I guess making it feel more reel!

    I'd like to see you make a set of armor as I requested, but what will it be made of? ABS Plastic?

    I'm sure the bucket will be made out of fiberglass as always. Great job MS, I hope to catch you at ComicCon in San Diego. I hear that there are going to be upwards of 100,000 people there. I'll probably be the ESB Fett with the E-11, I may also be a TK a few days, and maybe a jedi.

    I've got long curly hair under the bucket, so I'd be hard to miss!
