and only cost me about 16 dollars.
(more or less for you, i had some things already, you might be abe to make it for less!) (or moar, beware!!)
thanks and enjoy!
lots of feedback pleasee!
Step 1: Gathering of matierials
*this stormtrooper helmet 3d pepakura file.:
*a printer with at least 27 sheets of paper.
*2-3 sheets of posterboard (i used #180 drawing paper)
*a razorknife/utility knife
*a glue stick
*bondo or sheetrock brand drywall filler
*assorted grits of sandpaper from 60 to 600
*white gloss spraypaint
*black sharpie/ black marker
- a square foot of aluminum window screen
- two sink aerators with screens (yaknow, the things on sinks that makes the water come out nice)
- about 40 hours of spare time
okay, lets get started.......................
Step 2: Download
download and install Pepakura viewer 1.03
download and open the Stormtrooper template.
learn how the viewer works.
i.e. learn how to spin/drag the model
how to zoom in and out with your mouse's scroll wheel
how to pick individual pieces
basic navigation controls
(and play around with the settings when you right click in the helmet's window)
Step 3: Print
print out the 27 pages of the model.
dont worry, it uses a very veryy minimal amount of ink.
Keep them in order!! and keep them some place safe where they wont get creased ormolested in any way. i used a simple pocket folder.
