Oh shoot i have a use finally, thanks for that, my original helmet I made wasnt the right scale, Now I can take a metal lamp shade frame and hot glue it to the helmet, and place the frame over the bulb..nice helmet btw.

If you ask for polystyrene fibreglass resin, I'm sure you will get the same thing in Europe as we do in North America.

Anyway, the helmet looks AMAZING!

Hey, I was wondering... My resined helmet won't dry... It's been a day since I resined and it still aint dry, does anyone know something that makes it dry faster? Thanks in advance :)

Put it under a lamp for hours of a day, or use tons of hardener and make a new batch of resin, go over it quickly.

The Glaze I used is a Polyester Glaze... When you get it, the Glaze should be the consistency of Honey or molasis... Putty will be, putty....

Show pics.

Is it like really deformed? Like you you have trouble saying that it's MC in front of you? ^^

will post a pic later...

you know the area behind the led/ear part? it has become a bobble thingy on 1 side and the chin part is also misshapen now...

Edit:

oh maybe when i bondo it it could be alright... dunno tho it's kinda weird shaped atm.
