    Greetings from Texas

    Ive been a fan of BH since I first watched the Star Wars series.

    I first started using pepakura for my builds, like for my Ao2 mask, as well as the start of an iron man helmet. I have been reding the forum for a short while, and finally got the chance to start on my Fett helm.


    That was 2 hours of work(notice the impromptu stand... aka lavalamp). Next couple of days ill resin it and get more done.


    Im more of a fan of Bossk, hence the handle. I also like to build weapons, such as the E11 blaster, thats about 30% done.

    Needed a small winter project to stay inside and work on in this freezing 50 degree weather :P. Ill be around posting, and thanks to wizardofflight for the templates for the helm. Once I can actually post elsewhere, Ill show my other WIPs.

    Look forward to getting to know yall.

    Re: Greetings from Texas

    Well since I cant post anywhere else lol

    I fiberglassed the helm on the outside, then glassed the inside of the dome, then glassed the outside to solidify it all together:



    Still very rough, next comes the bondo.... and then the accessories.

    (And yes, very bad pic, but I still cant find the charger for my camera, and with the angle, the front looks very uneven)
