Hey,

As all of my friends know, The Rocketeer is my absolute favorite movie. I don't know what took me so long to take on this amazing helmet (and maybe more....eventually)

I got this beautiful helmet from Ozymandias, and am blown away at it.

I've gotten a bit done on it for a while, and it's already my favorite prop I've ever done. Definitely the best looking one.

uploadfromtaptalk1424675018670.jpg once I got it out of the box, I did a test fit for the fin.

uploadfromtaptalk1424675152170.jpg I applied a light coat of primer to find small imperfections

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for looking,

Thomas

Okay, so I removed all the bondo. It actually wasn't difficult, probably because it wasn't applied correctly. Any suggestions, or comments?

Here's the helmet as it sits right now. Does anyone know what this helmet is made of? Looking for the best epoxy, and it'd be helpful to know.

I don't hate the current color scheme

Thanks,

Thomas
