    how do you get a smooth and even surface from Bondo and sanding? I'm working on my Stormtrooper helmet now and I can't seem to get that. I'm using wood filler putty to substitute Bondo by the way

    Can you please tell me the size of this Helmet when finished? Is it adult sized? I am hoping to make one to fit a four year old.

    Excellent idea and I aim to try this in the very near future. The finish quality looks amazing on the images, but I assume that this is comparible to the amount of time you spend on it. Terrible usage of guitars though. lol

    Hello, thanks for having a look, your right I don't say anywhere it's a full scale lid, but it is, it's 1:1 scale with a stormtrooper resin cast helmet ?

    That helmet looks like a movie quality prop! Great job and can u build a clonetrooper helmet the same way?

    Hey man, thanks, and yes you can build allsorts the same way, have a look at my other builds, they tell you more about pepakura as a Base to build on and the processes to make helmets

    This looks REALLY GREAT for the materials and $ spent. You're too hard on yourself for a tenner project. :-) I wonder if I could be SUPER cheap about it and do paper mache on top of the card base to stiffen it before painting. Then I'd have everything I need at home already for the white base...

    Thanks man, and yeah paper mache would work, and maybe some cheap wood filler over the top to smooth it out would help too

    Hi. Could you please explain to me a little bit better the Bonds process (what kind of materials you used, the brown mixture you made, etc)? That would help me a lot. The helmet looks great! Thank you
