ok, so recently, I've been working on my Helmet project, I've gotten the basic outline of the Helmet, I know I was limited in Supplies, so I grabbed a few foam blocks, and carved out the rear of the helmet:

Thats it so far, now I Know it looks like total crap since I used Styrofoam, so I was thinking, could I cover the entire thing with bondo Body Filler when its done? Then work out my details with that? Remember, this is JUST a Model, the final product is going to be made of Hard Fiberglass and Resin

Hey! Looking good! At first I couldn't make out what exactly what was what, but then I saw the back and I knew you had good progress.

Can't wait to see more!

btw, I have the Jaw piece all cut out, now I just have to shape it ;-)
Can I cover everything with bondo body filler though? just to work out the details before I brush on my rubber?
 
yes. you can spread bondo really easily, and then CHEESE GRATING is a must. itll get everything to a good form, which will allow you to save a lot of time on sanding.

ok guys :mrgreen: , I'll make sure to pick up my foam dome to shape the head and such ;-)

UPDATE!!!!
The jaw piece is basically finished, I got pics, I know that a Few things are off, but once I cover all of it with bondo and smooth it to shape, those problems will be solved, and I also know its too small inside, which will also be fixed once I complete once I cover it with bondo! anyways, here's my update pics!!!!
