Well it used to be blue but i painted it black for further modifications. im going to spacle it to add more detail. later if its totally uber awsome ill mold it. but for now its a pepakura skeleton of what it will be.

To Do List:
1. fold and glue into a pep helm: Done
2. Add vents and expanding foam the inside: Done
3. make a cheep soda bottle visor: Done
4. Add detail through spacle: in proggress
5. Airbrush the whole helm awsomly: got to go to Ny to do it.

people who have used spackle seem to have good results. I eagerly await the finished product, and hopefully even a mini tut on using spackle ;)

No, not the same. Spackle is the non toxic, slightly less sturdy equivalent to bondo body filler. It's the white paste-like stuff you spread onto cracks or small holes in walls to smooth them out. But it works pretty well, I enjoyed working with it.

Nice helmet, I dig the black stealthy look. Gonna keep it that way?

I might keep the black stealth look but i dont know. thanks for the comments and i surely will make a tut once i spacle it. i waiting for some money and the ok from my mom to spacle it. :cool: when its done if it looks really really awsome Il mold it with a loan from the art dept from my school.

(note to k-22: mrs. doe said to keep it a secret (the loan) so dont tell..... ANYONE!!.... ok?)

sorry for the double post but i wanted to update you that k-22 is coming to my house on sunday so we can work on our helmets together. (feel bad for my printer lol) Well my bro is buying my Rc truck when he can. hes gunna pay me like 25 a week for two months i think.. so soon my helm will be glorious. one thing is i spacle over the paint will the spacle fall off or should i sand the area down to the paper to make it easeir to stick too?
