Hello everyone!

I thought maybe this would be interesting )
I really like the helmet of Boba Fett and in the process of working on the costume I made helmet based on Pepakura.

I made a lot of changes, but their was not enough, the helmet came not accurate and a small size, but I believed in themselves and began the second.

Second helmet doing in size and pictures found on this site +/- a few millimeters

What did you use over to cardboard on your keyhole? And what did you use to sand it down? It looks so good, I'm struggling with mine lol

1 - paper model
cardboard 0.7mm x 3 layers and PVA glue

(this glue is absorbed in a cardboard and becomes very firm after drying and perfectly holds a form)

2 - polyester resin

(this thing is dangerous to health, I use it because I'm not going to wear a helmet on my head)

3 - polyester car body filler (I used bodyfine)

4 - grind before installation, because it is more convenient and better result

(diamond files can be washed in water!)

5 - install using hot glue and polyester resin with fiberglass
