    I couldn't agree more.

    I love it when people show progress. Some big prop makers just show the end result. Never how they got there.

    Way to go guys!!

    Where can I get one of those official Porterville work benches? Looking nice. I want to hear more about your new purchase. Give me a jingle if you have a chance.

    'nother question on the foam... can you vac form right over that, or do you use that to make a negative mold and then pour a positive out of ultracal or something?

    Cruzer, I'm a bit confused, why fill the helmet with the expanding foam?

    Because the foam gives to the helmet more consistency, IMO.

    IMO? I'm sorry, I'm still new to the forum and I'm not familiar with that term. What's IMO?

    Thanks for clarifying the foam question!

    yeah, if you fill it with expanding foam it helps keep everything rigid. avoiding flex will prevent bondo cracking.

    I did a little reconstructive surgery on my EP2 Hasbro conversion, I think whilst the chin does stick out quite a bit it is the width that really makes it look a bit pointy, basically I cut out the chin section as it was basically one piece and stuck it back in from the inside thus setting the chin a little further back in the face, then built up the area around with bondo and blended it in, Great work so far Cruzer and six what type of foam is that, I need to get me some of that

    oh and here is mine so far

    Bad economy = layoffs = more time to mod = invest in Bondo stock!
