    Here is the work I have so far completed on my helmet, I really wanted to add lighting on the helmet so I'm thinking about adding lighting into the front top of the helmet, I've marked it into the helmet, I'm aiming for a sort of "interrogation" strength white lights,

    Keep in mind, your "Interrogation Strength" light would give off a tremendous amount of heat. Even w/ a fan going, you will get very hot in your helmet.

    I'm planning on using medium strength led's to avoid to much heat, thanks for the warning tho :)

    Looking great man, keep up the great work. Looking forward to seeing it complete. I am thinking about making the EOD helmet from reach aswell so I was just wondering where you got your pepakura file because I am having a bit off trouble finding one

    Hey there, right now I'm making my armor out of foam, but I'm thinking about making the helmet using bondo or resin. What sort of resin are you using? Keep up the awesome work!

    Hey Karth, for my helmet I just used plain store bought resin for the outer coat and I used a 50/50 mix of resin and Builders Bog for the slushing inside, but if you're looking for strength for the helmet I'd recommend using fiberglass instead (or chux wipes as they're muuuuuuuch cheaper, and you dont have to worry about rashing and being sliced up, and as far as I'm aware work just as well) as it's much lighter and less brittle. I used the slushing method as there are a few places that I wouldnt be able to use the fibreglass on without leaving large gaps between matting and paper, (ie. the nose and mouth section) but plan to use the fibreglass to reinforce the helmet. Hope that helped :)

So far I have successfully slushed both forearms and just starting to bog and sand them.

    I have also made progress on the chest piece. Since the last chest update I have used a mixture of slush and fibreglass to reinforce weak areas, pictured is its size to myself and me currently attempting to fix a inward bend in the lower back "tail" section that happened during slushing, the fix is by weighing down the area using a weight and rope and adding fibreglass to the section and surrounding areas to stop the bend. 20170319_145809.jpg 20170319_145812.jpg 20170319_145815.jpg 20170319_145817.jpg 20170319_145819.jpg 20170319_145821.jpg 20170626_180616.jpg 20170626_180621.jpg 20170626_180628.jpg
