Yes. I asked on his thread and he said that it was ok for me to post the link to his thread. :) I updated the first post to say that i got permission as well.

Thank you very much.

He's currently unfolding the Blood Eagle Pathfinder helmet.

Small Update - Sanding has and probably will continue.I've just ordered a Black and Decker electric sander that will be arriving Thursday. I feel one of those could defiantly come in handy for the bondo,sand,bondo,sand,sand,sand.....Sand stage lol

Future plans - Been thinking about the diamond swords and i REALLY want to make a full light suit with lights and a little something else i would very much like to do with the suit.All i'm saying is...

YOU GOTTA GO FAST! :love lol



I have plans floating around my melon for this suit.

Sandpaper was just to slooooow and so i needed to find a faster way to sand.

Today i got my new toy,Black and Decker cyclone orbital sander. I'm going to continue sanding and see how it is :)

Aye...what an expensive week :/

I just came back inside from sanding a little and that electric sander is awesome!

I think as you might be able to see that it's taking a little more shape and is slooowly getting a little smoother.

Bondo is still a complete mess and I'm going to have to do a truck load of sanding and filling. No doubt about it this is the longest part of the process making this helmet.

I'll admit i was quiet sloppy with the bondo so that's probably another reason way it;s going to take longer. It's my first build and I'm going to make mistakes and so i just need to learn from them :)

I'll keep you updated.

Small update just showing yesterdays progress. Not much but i got one section (below the eye cheek - chin) quite smooth.

Added a before and after to show progress on how it's coming along with the sanding. Nice to see the progress.

Todays Progress : Sanded above the eye and left side forehead and wing. Front left is nice and smooth and shaping up nicely and getting rid of the thick lumps of bondo.

Sanding a little each day trying to sand in sections so it's a little easier.
