I completed my 1st helmet build.....Its not prefect or close 2 it. For my 1st time I think I did an ok job. It has a lot of gaps and offsets that I probably could fix if I bondo the helmet...but Im not gonna go that far. This was just me getting a feel for the whole building method. Here are some pix....

Yea, looks great. My first helmet got mangled in the long run, but it was definitely a great piece to practice with.

Best way to learn is to practice and you have a great base that is begging to be glassed. Although I think some people have gone from cardboard straight to bondo. Personally I would resin and fiberglass it before bondo.
