I do not remember how I came to this forum.
A few month ago, I found on instructable a tutorial to built an arc reactor and tryed to start with building my own one. With no success at the moment. Project is in stand by. But I got pationated by all what I read here.
I'm writing you from France. I'm 37 soon, and I'm a huge Marvel comics fan for years now. So ... I started to build many props at the same time, and here is a thread about my version of the Sebastian Shaw / Magneto helmet you can see in the latest X-Men movie.
I started my built from the pepakura version of the helmet. Wich one was fiberglassed with polyester resin, and then finished with 'what you call bondo', arms, sand paper and a lot of time and pain. The decorative patern was cut in a plastic bucket and stuck on the helmet with neoprene glue.
Here is the result at the moment.
Hope you'll enjoy my first try.
