    Figured I'd share my Pepakura paper/fiberglass/bondo First Order helmet build. Enjoy :)

    Paper assembling.... done! Now time for some fiberglass resin and fiberglass!

    Made the Lens out of plexiglass and a heat gun.

    Carving out the helmet clips. Used a lot of Apoxie Sculpt to do finishing touches such as this.

    Sweet Christmas, great job.

    I've never done pepakura, how long did it take to just put the paper together, before you even used hardeners?

    Great job on the finishing. I'm working on a FO helmet now. What did you use for the mesh?
