    Hello everyone,

    Before I ask my question I will at least give you all the common courtesy of introducing myself to the forum as this is my first post. My name is Daniel, originally from the United Kingdom but have been living here in the sunny Philippines for the past 4 years.

    I have been browsing this forum for a little while and I have to say, it's an awesome place and it has prompted me to start my first build of a set of Iron Man armor.

    I have almost completed pepping the helmet which has led me to a question. Do I connect all the pieces of the helmet and resin and fiber glass and then dremmel the face plate off before I use Bondo? I think this is the way to go as it will ensure a proper fit between pieces. Or, should I go another way?

    Many thanks guys and girls.

    Some people do it that way.
    I used small binder clips to hold my pieces together up through the fiberglass stage.

    Hey Nitrox,
    Like mightyjohn said - smaller bind clips are the way forward, I also read about placing some folded aluminium baking foil between the pieces and then binding them with the clips, and this will make it a lot easier to separate the parts later on..
