    Re: New bucket and Armour

    Alright, here is another tutorial (I guess it's a branch off of the helmet one):

    Bondoing 101

    Alright, start with these:
    Bondo
    Hardener
    Applying tool (refered to as the BAT; Bondo Applicator Tool)




    Then, you take a small-ish amount of bondo (I use about a golfball sized amount)


    Add the required amount of hardener (read the bondo can label...I never use the right amount so I dont know what it is...)


    Stir THOROUGHLY...


    Then, using the BAT, apply the bondo to your construction in a spreading motion, leaving a thin, mostly even coat:



    And then your done!!! repeat process until you get a nice, even coat over the entire helmet. Hope this helps guys!

    Just remember that when it comes to sanding, it's easier to sand a lump than try to sand out a hole.

    So if holes appear when you sand, you will need to put another small layer of the bondoglass over it then sand again once it's dry.

    Also you will need rough grit to get the shape (60 to 120), smooth grit to even the surface (200 to 800) and fine grit (wet and dry paper 1000 up) to smooth the surface out. Always do it in that order, too fine a grit too early will take you ages and too heavy a grit later one and you'll just put scratches into the surface.

    Hope that helps.

    A'den & Saz: Thanks for the tutorial! That'll be helpful when it comes time to make a custom helmet!

    Out of curiousity A'den did you CAST that OR bounty hunt bucket out of bondoglass?

    Re: New bucket and Armour

    Not yet...I have built a base to form my plastic on though (now I can make more than one set!!! ) I need to get some accelerant so I can laminate my 2mm plastic plates into 6mm plates...or order more sintra...

    I haven't really done much of anything on this or my other mando lately...been helping Dem and the vod'ike with their stuff, but hopefully as this is a nice long weekend, I'll get some done. And on this, as I need metal for the other build.

    Re: New bucket and Armour

    helmet or armour templates? I made the temps, but the armour ones no longer exist and the helmet ones are incomplete...I do plan on doing a run of these helmets though, once I get a master built.
