Hey everybody , hows it going?

I've recently found somebody who is being EXTREMELY kind and is printing off every piece of armor for me ,
I can easily accomplish making the pepakura seeing as how ive done so before , but i was curious .... if i was to fibreglass the helmet ,how much fibreglass mat would i need to make my helmet very strong?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions, and or help :) have a good day everyone...

i just put 1 layer of resin inside and out, then one layer of fiberglass inside, and another layer of resin inside and the things is hard as a rock.. and has some good weight to it, if u want it reallly hard i say do 2 layers of fiberglass and 2 layers of resin over top to keep it smooth.. keep in mind, the more fiberglass and resin, the heavier its gonna be :D
