Re: Need help

Read this for some of the basics: Amazon.com: The Prop Builder's Molding & Casting Handbook (9781558701281): Thurston James: Books

Then use the advanced search function on the rpf and search for threads with the words Bondo, fiberglass, resin...etc. listed in the title.

Then start reading. Subscribe or save your favorite threads under your Quick Links drop down menu.

You will find what you are looking for and the digging will show you things you never considered. The rpf is amazing.

Have fun!

Also... search Youtube for Ironman or Halo keywords with Helmet and How To. You'll see LOTS of videos that will step you through the process.

Good luck! :thumbsup

Re: Need help

The Smooth-on website also has some tutorials I think. If you have time and patience you will find a plethora of information on this topic. Get yourself a doubleshot of espresso and stay up all night on the net. It's what a good researcher does.
