Hi all,

After finishing my first scratch build, I wasn't completely satisfied with it, because it had been before I knew all the itty-gritty details about the Boba Fett helmet.
Anyhow, I have begun it!

I will allow the pictures to tell the rest (up to now)
(pic heavy!)


I began with the inside support:

And proceeded to cover it up:

I cut out the area for the cheeks:

I decided to use some 1mm sintra for the outside because it sands unlike cardboard...but we'll see how that goes:unsure

Advice and criticism is very much appreciated.

Nice clean build so far. A couple things I noticed to watch for...you have a little gap at the front of the dome base that may give you some trouble, also you might want a little bit of a lip around the dome base (outer layer) to give you something to slide the dome in, as well as surface to glue.
