Hello friends, i already introduced myself in the sticked thread but i will do it again!
My name is Mário, 26, I'm from Brazil, and recently i started to building an Iron man Helmet to test my abilities and to acquire some practice with pepakura, resining, fiberglassing, bondoing and sanding to build Star Wars helmets and other stuff to have as decoration at my place.
during the thread i will tell you guys about all the things i'm using to make it, since I'm on a different country i don't have the same stuff you guys have there, and things here are alot more expensive.
All the credits to the Pepakura file creator (Samuray).
Here is the assembly of the printed pepakura file:
-300g/m˛ A4 paper (can be compared to 120LB Cardstock)
-X-acto Knife with several different blades and a sharpening stone to re-sharp the used blades (trust me, this works flawlessly)
-Super glue and high heat hot glue sticks
Resining the helmet:
-27fl Oz of Ambar Polyester Resin (the strongest one)
-Universal Resin Catalyst
-40"X60" Fiber glass cloth (this was too thick so, next time i have to use a thiner one)
-A lot of 2" and 1.5" wide brushes ( 12 total )
-Disposable Latex procedure gloves
-3M 8013 Respirators (6 total, every one gives you 2h to work safe with resin)
-Sealed Protection goggles ( very important too while working with Resin too)
well, here its a video of me fiberglassing the helmet, i'm speaking on my native language but I subtitled it for you guys so just click on the CC button to load the subs and enjoy!
-Rotary Tool (dremel look a like)
-Rotary tool Carving & Engraving and Grinding accessories
-3M 8013 Respirators
-Sealed Protection goggles
I'm going to post the rest of the pictures and other stuff later, i hope you guys enjoy!
