Hey guys. First post here, been lurking on the forums for a while, seen some interesting stuff. Finally got around to registering, and finally got around to making some stuff.
So yeah, this is what I've got so far. Not so much cheaping out here, what with the cardboard... but I had it around, and it's nice to work with. Yes, I know, you can see the Shreddies picture on the cheek. My Mando happens to like his healthy breakfast (And yes - I used the WoF templates. Handy, they is.)
Thats after I covered the helmet... I'm using something called "plastic wood", a sort of filler, had it around the house. It's handy
Back view of the same thing... you can see that it's kinda warped on the back, which I suppose is a direct result of using cereal boxes as building supplies... Either way, I think I'll reinforce that with something a bit stronger... bit of coat hanger wire maybe.
Thats right after sanding. It surprises me... by looking like a helmet! Go figure. I'm thinking I'll put another layer on there, mainly on the face. That way I can cut into it, make it 'pop out' a bit more around the visor (which I don't have atm. I'll take a looksee at the Hardware store, see if they don't have anything that'll work.). Talking to my brother, thinking might make up a vacuforming table sometime (his job has to do with that kinda thing, he'd be a great one to help 8) ) to make some nicer stuff, bit less delicate too... either way, I'm working on this for now. Who knows, maybe it'll turn into a full set of armour sometime. One thing at a time.
