I use a glue you get from a hobby shop (not like hobby lobby) where you would buy rc cars, planes, and such. The glue is very potent and once the glue is down you have about 5-10 seconds to get the piece where you want it. Stuff works great but is killer on your fingers

I'd agree, but luckily that's a super easy part.

Everything else looks great! Keep up the nice work, sir.

Good job man!

I noticed on my test arm that after it's done there is paper where your hand goes through, so how would you recommend getting rid of it?

good choice leaving the paper face=shield in. don't remove it until you've made the helmet structure stable
(enough layers of resin, or even better, fiberglassed.) it will warp if you do take it out.
