Hello again, it's been a while, everyone good?

So in the last few weeks/months I've been busy with my kids and work and stuff, also it's far to cold to be working in the garage so when I've had time I've mainly been doing pepakura stuff in the house, ( just updated my pepakura helmet post, there's a few things on there I've been working on) but in this instructable I'll show you the medievil boba fett lid I did, ( yes another helmet! I will move on to other things one day!) also I'll show you the way I do pep work and what I use to do it, right on with the structable!

Step 1: Pepakura

Finding the pepakura you want,

The internet is a wasteland of all sorts of rubbish, if you sift through the crap, you find gold, the gold I find is pepakura, there thousands of these nuggets you just got to look, I'll point you in the right direction but the rest is up to you;

The405.com has loads of halo stuff, plus other bits and bobs

Also therpf.com is a gold mine for amazing peps by some amazing people, go in, look around, you'll find something you want I'm sure!

As in the picture , pepakura is a 3d image, unfolded so you can print it out and reassemble into a 3d object,
<p>When I first saw this, I thought it was Solaire of Astora's helmet from Dark Souls.</p>
thats freakin sick, and that daedra helmet though
Good stuff. Always wanted to try Pepakur. I could almost see my wives face asking me what I'm doing.
Do it urbanmx! My wife was a bit confused at first, but now she loves seeing them come together, and is a great critic, she keeps me on my toes and doesn't let me get sloppy! Haha
Awesome, can I make a request ? <br>Now do a Darth Vader one :D
I've avoided darth for as long as possible to be honest! Haha, I might do a medievil stormtrooper first and see how that goes, cheers for liking my stuff and having a look!
Would you mind going into a bit more detail on how you fiberglass/resin the helmet? Also what brand and a good supplier if you don't mind?
I have done a few time in other pepakura works I've done, check out my other helmets for a bit more detail, the fiberglass is standard stuff from any hard ware store, and pretty straight forward to do, but yeah I think I go into more detail on the trooper lid! :)
Wow, this is unreal!! I cannot believe that you can get something like this by starting with paper and glue. Man, the creativity is amazing... great work!! Phenomenal work! :D
Thank you mslaynie, glad you like it!
<p>how can i get this pdf without,paying lol</p>
Not sure about a PDF mate, I use pepakura viewer/designer and they work with a pdo. File, if you go to the rpf and search fett helmet you should be able to download from there for free, ( you might have to register with a site called 4share, to use there downloaded thing, but it's legit so don't worry about that) anyways I hope that helps a bit, if I could put the file on here for people I would,but I'm unable at the mo.
Very cool, i'm going to try this!
how do you paint it to have the holes in black but the smooth surface in silver?
You paint it silver first, then you dry brush it black, then wipe off as much black as you can to make it look weathered, it takes a bit of practice, I'm still learning too, but it kinda works out
Dude nice job. In case you didn't see The Dented Helmet featured your build on their Facebook page.
Thanks man, no I didn't see, I'll have a look cheers!
Psstt... rpf.com should read therpf.com, unless you meant to send people to some tennis site :D <br> <br>Beautiful job on this, inspired.
Haha oooops, thanks for the heads up, I'll try change it, and thanks for having a look! :)
Very nice.
Wow. That is amazing.
Nice work! I love how it turned out.
good one
Looks awesome. The medieval styling is perfect for Boba's helmet, good thinking.
