    First Helmet Build

    apply resin on the outside of the paper and the inside. let dry. then apply the layer with the fiberglass and resin together. My first try I did all of it at once and it was a hot mess.

    First Helmet Build

    good awareness trying the forearm before the helmet. I have to admit I jumped straight into the helmet and it was well... horrible... it was much better the second time round.

    First Helmet Build

    You can go either way. Pepakura takes longer and generally has more details, but is a little more expensive. Eva is a quicker process, but it takes a little more effort (not necessarily time) to put detail into it. All of this varies though depending on your personal skill set or schedule...

    MKVI Master Chief WIP (Pic heavy)

    I used smooth-on ONYX fast. it is a 2 part liquid plastic that you mix by volume not weight which makes life really easy. it is a very simple system to use. and is not a whole lot more expensive than fiberglass. If you are going to use it on a whole suit expect to use 3-4 trial units...

    Ranger's Halo 3: Mk VI Build

    This is looking awesome. Good idea with the pre-made helmet tht you just repainted. wish I thought of that before I made my first(too big)...then second(too small)...then third(just right). which finally worked. cant wait to see the progress.

    MKVI Master Chief WIP (Pic heavy)

    I dont think I want to go the vacuum form route quite yet. (mostly because I don't know if I have the space and materials for everything.) I think I am going to try and see if I can contact the Etsy seller and get some dimensions. I've heard that most sellers are easy to get into contact with...

    what would you recommend for a visor? I have seen some on etsy for ~$30-$40 but not sure about if it would fit with my helmet.
