    Cardboard Stormtrooper Helmet

    Depends on your experience, I suppose. It took me a few days my first time, now I can build one in a few hours

    Depends on the size of your head, of course. This template fits my head. If you're rocking a giant melon, scale up 5%- 10%.

    Very sorry. My model was destroyed after step 5 (last halloween) and I haven't been back to it since. If you download pepakura, you can find this model online (rpf or pepakura library) and see where the parts fit. I've modified a few for cardboard by connecting the parts, but you'll be able to figure it out by looking at the 2d and 3d layouts in pepakura.

    My apologies. Tips are on the Boba Fett comment thread:http://www.instructables.com/id/Boba-Fett-Cardboard-Helmet

    Well, this one was destroyed before I was able to finish, but these usually take me about 3-4 hours to assemble the cardboard. My first one took 2 days. Depending on how you want to finish it (resin and sanding vs decorating with a diy look) it can take a very long time or not much time at all.

    Open the PDF in photoshop or Gimp and transfer each piece to an 8.5" x 11" document and print it out. Don't change the scale unless you want to make it larger or smaller.
