    Hi All!!!
    I have made a start, finally, on my next project and I have decided to try a Biker Scout lid. I think the file comes from Vagabond, But I will have to check that for sure! If you recognise it, then please say. Anyway, Ive seen a few of these started but not finished, except for Icon01's build which was awesome. Also, they all seem to be a little oversized. Thanks to Wolf, I managed to find the info I needed to size it more accurately. I don't expect this to be anywhere NEAR the level of accuracy that his are but I am going to make it as close as is reasonably possible. Heck!!! I think Wolf's scout lids are more accurate than the originals! lol! So a big thanks to Wolf and Vagabond for their help in this endeavour.

    Above: There is a picture on Wolf's thread which shows the scout lid next to a trooper lid and the size difference here looks about the same , so I am happy.

    Resin and fibreglass mostly done. I'm going to try to slice this * in two and see if I can hinge it. It'll mean having to build extra sections onto the front and sides of the back half, but I want to find out if it's do-able. If anyone could post some detailed pics of the sections I need to build, I would be really grateful.:)

    Hi Everyone! I hope you are all well today:)

    I managed to get some body filler on the front half of of the lid, but it's just sooo darned cold, that I had to call a halt for today.

    Anyway, here are a few pics of today's progress. I'm looking forward to hearing what you think!

    The Pepakura Peak was double skinned, but the original was single skinned. I've cut out the inner skin of the peak but as a result, I had some gaps to plug around the edges of the face plate: I just used card and body filler:

    Well, that's where I am at the moment. I'm sorry its not further along after three days, but the weather here is TATERS!!!
    Hope you enjoyed today's installment :)

    You mean this Vader Pep? Just so you know this is Nintendude aka was Vagabond on here. Pretty good work on the file so far. I've got almost all the Star Wars weapon peps on my HD as well.

    Dude!! You changed your name again??? :lol! Your Biker lid Pep file is the best!!! I tried the Vader link but I just got empty boxes. Hey, how did the fund raising go for the trip for your dad? I hope you managed to sort it out.

    Thanks Mate! I am serious about the E11. That won't include the paint but it will include an offcut of plastic pipe, the steel sheet side of an old washing machine, some bits of wood and a pound for the glue!:lol
    I'll keep you posted!

    looking good mate, my biker scout build has near enough ground to a halt....can't seem to get myself motivated at all :(

    looks like you managed to chop it fairly well too :)

    Hey Hooper! Long time no See! Good to hear from you Bud' Yeah, the reference was about your build, which, I was following avidly! I hope you get back to it as you were going great guns! I know what you mean though, about motivation. It's really hard at times. and this week is the first in months that I have been well enough to get back to it. I cut it with a disc thing on the end of a dremil.

    Hey! as we are both at about the same point in the build, how about a race to see who can finish it first?? :lol It'd be a laugh!

    haha...wish i could mate, but i've two little things sat here that pretty much put pay to that (a one year old and a three year old)!

    i'm having a play with plasticard (styrene sheet) to try and eliminate as much use of bondo as possible....it's messy and stinks! the kids are going to bed in a minute, so I think i'll try and get an hour in a put some pics up in a bit (not that much will have changed from the last lot!)

    great to see you doing your first pep and what a choice, i'll be watching with interest, think you could make at a cost of £10 or less than?

    anyone else having issues seeing the pictures, could only see pictures in the first post :confused ...never mind after posting my comments and page refreshing they decided to appear, now i can see more of your progress it just get better, looks like you got bored with your dremel on to mouth section bit on the front.

    Hmm not sure what's up that the Vader pep is showing boxes only can you provide a screenshot? Is it just showing the 3D model in the window and nothing in the 2D development pages?

    just press the "print screen" key on your keyboard, open any picture editor you may have (m$ paint will do), then open a new document and paste. :)

    Re: Pepakura BIKER SCOUT HELMET Build - Picture Heavy DAY 3

    Watching this thread closely. I took on the same file as my first pep build and I've never done anything else related to prop/costume building before. My edges have a bit more glue on then yours and I'm struggling a the nose part (mine split open in the middle of the 2 upper triangles).

    I guess I'll post a picture in here when I've finally got all the parts together. I've been building in 3 major parts that I'll assemble at the final stage, as it seems just building the entire helmet in one swoop could end up with issues moving it while constructing.

    How did you go about it? Are you adding all the little parts onto the mouth part when finished painting?

    I just thought of something, are you trying to open it in Pep Designer 2 or 3 by any chance that could be the issue.

    Hi bron,
    Yeah, I'm going to build the front pieces out of some sort of plastic and assemble them to look as much like the original as posible. If you know my builds, then you know my budget is pennies at best! :lol
    I'm having a few technical difficulties at the moment regarding the convex curve on the section just above the eyes and just below the "peak." I may have to dremel the peak away from the face plate and continue with three sections, as the access is difficult at best. My worry is that re-assembly may cause issues....

    Hi PepMaster!
    Yeah I solved the issue with the screen capture thing, thank you for reminding me to say that as I completely forgot to post about my having solved it! Sorry Mate and thanks again:)

    To this day, I think the Biker Scout is still my favorite Trooper helm.
    I'll be watching this one! LOVE IT

    FYI: My next favorite is the TIE pilot. Any interest? Don't see that one done very often.. :p
