Really nice build on that helmet. It shows that you took your time. Also one of the best tutorials I have seen. I am in the process of building one myself. but I feel I need to go a smidge larger.

Thanks for the kind words. Why are you feeling the need to go a little larger?

Don't know if you've seen pics from older helmet builds but there are lines separating the "Mohawk" from the red ear pads that run from front to back. They converge slightly near the helmet base. The shield or badge on the front of the Mohawk can be easily replicated by using a basic shape cut from paper thin styrene plastic sheet. That allows the badge to easily conform to the curve of the helmet front. Then you can use .125 thick styrene to build the detail form on top. After gold paint and weathering you can epoxy the badge to the front. I have a scratch built helmet and a cast fiberglass helmet from screen prop, sold by a member here. The actual prop has a recessed frame area surrounding the badge and a cast badge is glued into the recess. Your project is looking great. Check out the Dredd costume build to find and profit from others experience before you.

Thanks :D
heya, I became I member here just to thank you on such a fine thread.
I've been a huge Dredd fan since forever and this has given me the courage to attempt it.
... Right after I finish my Boba Fett ;) which this thread has given me lots of tips for.
and thank you for the Australian research... It's a pain to try and find Sintra or Bondo equivalents in Oz but you've done the legwork and made things a lot easier.
Cheers mate :)

Hey! Thanks so much for the message, means a lot and I'm glad my thread has been able to help you in some way, shape or form. Good luck with all your builds and if there is anything I can help with, during your Dredd build, don't hesitate to ask!

I'm now about to make a new thread, following my custom Dredd armour build. It's not complete yet but fingers crossed it does the helmet justice

Sorry for coming in a bit late, but if you add less catalyst (cream) to the bondo it will kick slower. If you add more, it kicks faster. Bondo is simply corn starch and polyester resin. So fiberglass. With corn starch rather than glass... I know this will not do you much good being finished, but others will be using your WIP for a guide.
