Just finished gluing this together. Tried to transfer it to foam but it just did not look good so I am going the pep route. Going to resin this baby up tomorrow and then start the bondo stage and with the long weekend get this a nice start on the helmet.

Sweet, it looks good! Feel free to keep posting your progress in this thread if you'd like. I'm going to post some updates soon as well.

Really awesome masks, I've been working on my foam version. Just making a set of ears, Ignore those ugly sharpie lines. Reusing some old foam with patterns already on it :)

That's not from my file is it? Not that I mind of course, just curious. It's hard to tell with those sharpie lines. It's making me want to make a foam version myself.

I'll be updating in a few hours. Although I've been working on this quite a lot I haven't been posting updates since I haven't really felt like my work would look too much different from earlier posts.

These are all looking really good, can't wait to see them finished. I'd love to have a go at it but I'm just collecting half finished projects at the moment that I need to finish up. Plus I'm skint too:cry

The green stuff is Apoxie Sculpt, this stuff is great. I thought it would be easier keeping the neck guard bit separate but now I'm not so sure.The crest on the forehead needs tweaking. It's been tough keeping that edge prominent while also keeping the silhouette accurate.

I also dropped the price by half on my Etsy page. Now just $5. You can grab it by following the link in my signature.

This build has been sent to try me!!!:(

First, the place I usually get me cardstock from, dirt cheap and great quality doesn't sell it anymore. Had to buy some more expensive and less sturdy card.

Next, my printer just decided it didn't want to print pep files anymore, took forever to figure that one out, and I'm still not exactly sure how I fixed it.

Then my hot glue gun blew up! Only got as far as the top and back of the dome.

:cry

Hopefully pick up a new gun today and dig away at it over the next few evenings and get some rondo into it Thursday/Friday.

Still working on this. I'm actually closer than I thought I was, It's amazing what a coat of primer can do. I have pretty much all of the geometry how I want it with the exception of those recessed parts on the sides and some filling to do on the back. I hope to have this done by about this time next week.

Thanks man! How's your helmet coming along?

The chin is really giving me trouble. It's too simple, too few edges, it looks off unless it's absolutely perfect.
