    Re: Imperial Guard Helmet Skupilkinson's Pepakura

    Thanks! I have the day off Friday, woohoo, so hopefully my pops will be working on his house and have the heat cranked up. Once I get the paint on, I just need a visor to slap in. I think I even have a piece left that will fit. Keeping my fingers crossed that nothing happens that I have to take care of between now and then.

    Hey T-Bone, I'm bumpin' this thread to let ya know I just asked Skip so I can get this Pep file so I can start one of these too, I gotta Huge Melon on my shoulders, and seeing your mod, I will make one (or 2 or 3) too.

    The plan is to make a standard red, a black, and the black/red variants, wow that's a lot, but I got 5 sets of Mando armor in the works and a Revan (THX Skip) in the works right now, whats a little more............

    Any updates on your's? Got the visor and the armor yet?

    Hey all.

    The good news is that I haven't forgotten about this project and it's getting warmer here. I never got a chance to get over to my Dad's place, seems like he wasn't there every time I had a day off. The bad news is that I now have two jobs and I'm working seven days a week so... finding time to do anything is quite a task. As soon as I get something done, though, I'll post pics.
    Sorry to keep everyone hanging.

    Wow! I've been following this for a while, and it is looking great! I love pep builds! How much time do you have in the initial paper build not including glassing or bondo.

    Keep it up!

    Re: Imperial Guard Helmet Skupilkinson's Pepakura

    Kody, I never really kept track of time but I think I started working on it around the 3rd or 4th of July, 2008. The last mod pic I uploaded to my pc was August 17, 2008. It was all done in spare time. If you add it all together maybe a week of solid, non-stop work.


    I've had some time and warm weather over the past couple of days and I finally got to do something. Hooray! It is now under paint and clear coat. Here are some pics. Enjoy.









    I'm working on installing the visor this afternoon. When my wife gets back with the camera I'll try to get some pics of the final product up.

    Re: Imperial Guard Helmet Skupilkinson's Pepakura

    Well folks... I think I can finally say it's done. Now I just gotta finish the rest of the costume. Any tips on where to look? All the sites I've found on searches so far, are either gone or dead. Anyway without further delay here it is.





    Here it is over my melon.





    And for grins on my 15 month old son and then my wife.



    Again a huge thanks to Skip for the templates, and to all of you for the compliments and having the patience to wait on my lack of progress.

    T-Bone, your kid almost fits COMPLETELY INSIDE that thing
    I am so glad that your hard work has paid off, I paid Skip for his pep file a couple of weeks ago, but havn't had time to start since I am orienting at my new job, but seeing how FREAKING GOOD THAT LOOKS, I WILL MAKE MINE TOO (HE YELLS TO THE MOUNTAINS)

    Hey Skip when you get the armor templates ready, gimme a pm, I'll DEFINATELY BUY IT.

    Re: Imperial Guard Helmet Skupilkinson's Pepakura

    its so BEAUTIFUL... i have always thought that this was one of the best looking helmets and you definitely did a great job on re-creating it.

    I've been thinking about folding this helmet for a little while now, got any tips or tricks you learned from your build?

    I haven't decided yet. Probably the Revan mask since I already have it printed and sitting in front of me. I need to finish the build of the Nihilus mask first. I started on it when I got that mess figured out just to see how it would look.

    All I can say to this one is "PATIENCE." That's what will get this one done.

    Sounds great! I've just finished a set of templates for a Cylon head from the new BSG series(can you still call it new when it's just ended???). I'm happy with it but I can tell that's another one that would require alot of patience.
