I installed the visor, but I didn't wait long enough for the epoxy to set on the chicago screws and they pulled off the helmet

Oh nice nice :D going for ESB version, eh? I am going for ROTJ myself I'm currently still applying damage, and ordered some padding, since I already ran out, and its kinda big for my head so.. i'm thinking of installing the visor , but thatll be done via hot glue, I sitll have t ocut out the T though....

as for the stalk, I am wondering wether to glue it into the base, as it kinda stays put nicely, so if I need to I can move it infrotn fo the visor without the mechanism, but thatll be up for debate, currently going for glue as its kinda leanign to the right, instead of straight

The attaching of the visor is giving me a damn ehadache! nothign will stick to the inner surfa,ce ive tried hot glue, power tape, andn ow using kneadable epoxy to attach a bolt, and at one side they just come straight off, is the fiberglass/resin doing this?

edit: let me rephrase, it sticks, and sticks good, just it rips everything off when it comes off, i honestly don't know wtf to do anymore , guess i won't be wearing it tommrow

So now onto the armor I guess, but I do know in the future, I will be buying a helmet kit from the pros, makign the pepakura was fun, and a very good experience, but I'm pretty sure i far exceeded the costs of buying a kit :lol:

Nice pic! I have reached the same conclusion as you regarding the cost of pepakura. Oh well. For the visor, I used binding posts / Chicago screws that I attached with epoxy resin / glue. Here's a pic (I still have the protective film on the visor

I have been under the weather as I recuperated from surgery, but I was able to make some progress on my helmet.
