So after a finished Thor's hammer ( check out my other instructables ) I was happy with it, but I really enjoyed doing the fake metal paint work, so I wanted to do more, being a gamer and builder I like to make things I don't think I could ever get my hands on, and after racking up 100+ hours on skyrim I figured I'd make a helmet (again!), I could have gone for the best helmet in the game or the most powerful, but I went with a quite standard ancient Nordic one, because of the metal painting and I liked the horns.
So here's my take on that helmet, slightly modified to suit me, different horns and bits and bobs, it's how I wanted it, but you feel free to do it your way! Your the boss!
Step 1: Pep File
Like most of the lids I've made, I found a pepakura file close to the nord lid, ( I can't remember the address but you can find most things by googling what you want, normally the 405th or rpf.com have loads of stuff!)
So as per,
Step 2: Fibreglass
I go straight onto the card on the outside, on the inside, I used a bit of fibre but I don't go made because the card is pretty stiff when it's glassed on the outside.
Step 3: Bondo
Once the glass has gone off, it's bondo time!
Putting on thin (ish) layers, I work front to back, this time I did the full lid, then sanded, my god the sanding is insane! Wear a mask!
Step 4: Lil Bit Of Detail
In the bondo I wanted to put scratches and cuts and make the metal look used, I did most of this work with a dermal and sandpaper etc,
Step 5: So Begins The Paint!
Normally I'd primer and undercut, but I'm using a paint called hammeright, it's for painting metal railings and stuff, good stuff, two coats of that should be sweet!
