    Hi guys,

    Recentrly i´ve peped a IM helmet. I used polyester resin and matt fiberglass. But is more tedius to work. Sand this material is hard. :sick But the urethane resin is more soft.
    I have a new peped helmet, Boba Fett. And i would like if somebody have used the urethane for resine pepakura models.

    Thanks.

    Jose.

    Smooth On makes a resin called Onyx, which is similar in hardness to polyester, but can be slush cast or brushed on and sands easily. If you mix it with some Ureful 7, you can make it even harder.
