    Sanded the first layer of filler on the neck part of the mask, still needs some sanding and extra filling here and there. I think I will also make the round collar/shoulder piece, that would give the model a finished look.

    amazing build! I'm loving that these concept sketches are starting to surface and that people are taking an interest in them. You sir, are doing a fantastic job. I just have one question....what are you using to glue the polystyrene? I'm having trouble finding glue strong enough.
    thanks!

    Thanks Ghost, I'm using the normal Revell plastic glue used for model kits.

    That looks great! Going to make a wonderful display piece when its all done. Or will you try to tackle a whole costume designed around it?
