Actually if you read Sigma's build on his CQB, he used painters tape to make the outline of the shape for the 1st visor...I actually did that as well and I think that is what he used as well for his CQB.moonmi said:AWESOME work!! by the way is there a sticky tutorial on everything about getting the gold face shield built/ getting that design on it, if you know what i mean.
Yep I agree that's a really nice job you've done there. I know how hard it is to keep those loooong curved edges looking so straight. WELL DONE!!And it's done. Wanted to thank everyone here for all the help. Pretty happy with how it turned out after battle damage. Not so happy with my crappy photography. Will try to get some better ones this weekend in the sun. It's been raining every day here after work so these are inside with a flash. Only thing I need to finish is the fans and voice stuff inside. Oh and going to add some thick rubber cutout to fit where the two "mandibles" don't quite meet the face shield.

Update time! Got it almost-kinda-sorta one color (okay primer, but still) and have begun adding detail. Also working on sculpting the 3 round vent like knobs on the top of the helm, but will hold off showing them until they actually look correct.

Okay, some progress done but a LOOOONG way to go to get this sucker smooth. Getting really sick of saning this by hand! Although thankfully i got a detail sander yesterday for Father's Day! SO progress should be quicker now.

Hey all, inspired by all the great work being done on here and thought I'd give it a shot. Below is my in-progress CQB helmet. Hopefully I'll be able to update progress regularly. Constructive crits always welcome.
Interior is glassed. Two layers of resin, one layer of matt and a final layer of cloth.

And... bondoing in progress... (I think I just invented a new word... bondoing... looks like bon-doing! Sorry off on a tangent)
