Hello RPF! So about a week ago, I doscovered that the discount theater that was opening where I live was goanna have the Avengers as one of their movies! I decided to make a Captain America helmet for it So here it goes, my 1 week Cap. Helm!
I began with JFCustom's foam unfold of the helmet
Coated it in elmers glue then guesso (I dont know why I switched...) then put a coat of rondo on it. Shout out to XRobots for his stuff about plastic coating foam!
It was at this point that I noticed that I had forgotten to heat shape the top of the helmet... So I but some bondo on it, sanded, repeated, and then put another coat of rondo on.
Sanded it to 220 grit then rubbed it with steel wool (I didnt have time to go any higher as it was only 6 or so hour till I needed to be there )
So I primed it, and painted it with crappy white and blue wal mart spray paint. And here is my final result!
Over all, I'm quite happy with it. Especially since I only worked about 15 hours total over the course or 7 days! I may try to repaint it as it has some dust/debree in it, but I think ill try wet sanding it first to see if I can make it any better
Well, Thanks for looking! Any advice/tips on anything would be greatly appreciated Cheers!
