Hi everyone,

A while ago I made a pepakura helmet for my Iron man mark 7 build, but it stayed in card stock form.

Well now that I am going to make more helmets, I finished it and added the supports to use it as a test for resin, because I have never used resin or fiberglass before.

I also pepped a Halo spartan (master chief) helmet, and I'm working on a few others.


I did the first coat of resin on the Iron Man helmet today. I think I accidentally mixed it hot, because I was having trouble getting the hardener tube open, and then more hardener than I expected came out.

I did measure out 1 ounce of resin, though, and I tried to put about 10 drops of hardener in.

I'll try to have pictures up soon.

P. S. I wasn't sure if I should out this in the Marvel section or not because it has multiple kinds of helmets.

Re: My Pepakura projects.

The coat of resin on the outside dried, and I put one on the inside yesterday. Today, I fiberglassed part of the inside of the helmet. I've never used fiberglass before, but it came out pretty good, I think. It's really hard. Once I finish fiberglassing, I will start the bondo. I don't have a camera right now, so I can't take pictures.

--edit--

you say you never used resin or fiberglass. Where did you find how to use it?
What supports did you add to the helmet before you added resin.

I am attempting an Iron Man build. I want detail but not want to spend a ton of money.
I like the idea of foam but dont like the result. It's not detailed.

Can't wait to see more of your helmet.

I found this site, and some videos like these really helped:

Also, another forum like this one that has a lot of experience with Pepakura is http://www.405th.com.

I joined there too.

Update!

I started the Bondo work on the faceplate. It's a little rough so far, but it's my first time using bondo also, and I'll keep sanding.
