    My first Mandalorian Helmet

    Hi all.
    I'm from Argentina, so sorry for my English.
    I've been watching their work, and the truth is that I've loved, and so I am in the process of building my first helmet.
    I am following in the footsteps of Antman, a helmet made ​​of cardboard.


    The idea and the beginning was to make Boba Fett's helmet, however, I will make a Mandalorian sniper.


    So apart from wanting to show the work I'm doing, waiting for tips and corrections sugerieran I wanted to change was to give the helmet to match a sniper. What would be most appropriate?

    foto1556-jpg foto1557-jpg foto1559-jpg cutting the space of the viewer, I was in doubt about how to do that. . I was about to leave as in the second picture, but ended up giving the look Fett Helmet

    Well, until there comes, today will cut off parts of the dome, and I start to assemble.
    I hope you liked it

    Thanks, and I waith your opinions!

    Great work on this and thanks for sharing. I actually like the way you had the cutout without the vertical part cut out like in the middle picture. Not sure how that would have looked all completed and painted but maybe if you added some features down there in the front "nose" area, that would have left the area not so blank. Either way, it's a great start. Maybe you could do an enhanced range finder since it's going to be a sniper. Definitely a long decked out sniper rifle but perhaps some other ocular enhancement things on the helmet to support the whole "sniper" look.

    I've seem some custom Mandos have a full visor drop down that basically looks like some sort of full binocular that is hinged on both sides. That's a pretty large greeblie so I don't know if you're willing to jump into anything that big but maybe something along those lines.

    Thanks for sharing your progress!
