    Hey guys I thought I'd share my first shot at Pepakura. Forgive me but I do not remember who I got the file from, I would have liked to have given them the credit for the file. Like I said this was my 1st attempt at this and I hope to better my skills. I still have a few spots to touch up with paint and I need to find something to use for his eyes.........Here's some pics

    The vents in the head piece were made from a For Sale sign

    I could be wrong but it could be one of my ancient files, I remember unfolding a OP Helmet a while back but can't say for sure if it was this one or a different one. Looks good though. It looks like all you need is EL Lighting for the eyes and it's done.

    thanks for the comments guys....I got the file from a member here it was a large file with a bunch of different pep files in it. I swear I'll remember who I got it from....As for the eyes I'm not sure yet but I would love to get some ideas from everyone on how to do them. I know a cheap and easy way would be to you blue reflectors and run some LEDs behind them.

    Yep mor ethan likely my old OP Helmet file. About 80% of what he has in the file collection are works of mine, the other 20% done by other people. Sometime soon I think I need to download his collection to see what I'm missing from old formats of my PC that I need to get back. But anyways this looks excellent.

    Outstanding, how long did it take you to put the OP helmet together prior to bondoing?

    Awesome job! I love the weathered look, it really helps show the age of Optimus.

    Since it's just the head, you could consider displaying it like in the early Marvel issues after the introduction of Shockwave (around issue 5). ShockWave had Optimus' head on display while he was attempting to siphon the creation matrix from him.

    @G17RDY the cutting and gluing only took about 7hrs......

    I really want to come up with a cool display for it, It's one of the 1st props I've built and really liked how it came out......

    gyoung2993 - This is actually a great pep project to take on yourself. I've done a G1 very similar to this and it was quite easy to pep ... now the resin, bondo, sanding, prep and paint is another story :lol

    I've "tried" to pep a few things (Iron man helmet, War Machine, and of course G1 Prime) but I just finsihed my first project start to finish which was a Mortal Kombat Scopion face mask that turned out far better than I expected and that was a hard and tedious one to pep. You'd be surprised what you can do once you start. The viewer is free and paper is realitivley cheap so if you mess up it's only your time. Besides we have a great example of how this looks once it's finished. So my two cents is jump in and try ... it's quite fun.

    Great job! It looks great, if it were me I'd light up the eyes similarly to an iron man helmet. That would make it look stunning.

    Want want to find a light set up to add to make it look like they were flickering as if they were trying to power down and I want to add cables and wires hanging out of the head. I have looked all through my PC and cannot find the pep file at all, hopefully someone else here can help. I found it on here from another member but I have no idea who.

    This looks great, I know this is old but does anyone have access to a currently working pep file of this helmet? Would love to get my hands on it.

    I designed this over the course of a couple years for myself based on pics of the MP10 toy, all I need to finish is the knees

    Here's the head, the face plate is a separate piece to allow for motion while talking

    Those Google ads are annoying. If you mouse over them you'll see the URL, sometimes that can give you an idea if a Download button is a fake advert.

    The comment (mine) immediately above yours has a link ;)

    Incidentally, since the OPs images don't load for me, the pep link I posted looks like this;
