I fished my ODST helm in pep

The model is form NZ-TK. It took around 21 hours (not done yet missing a few small parts)

I would have finished it today but i spent for the past 4 days working 5 hours a day on it (got carpal tunnel on the second day)

The only comment about the 3d model is that it needs a visor

I put one in with card stock and tape

Update: put one layer of resin on the helm

Nice job, its a very difficult pep file to fold. is the visor you've got pushing the sides out? it looks a little wide in the cheeks? other than that well done :)

my plan is fiberglass it but i dont know how many layers to put on the helm?

i have read like 1 or 2 but i was looking over what MLC had to say about sanding the helm to make it lighter and cost go down

Since the helmet has such a high mess i think i can sand most of it then glaze the rest

i just dont know how much sanding i can do before for the fiberglass goes

Do 2 layers of fiberglass, then you can sand down to the glass itself and not worry about sanding through the glass, then it will be alot smoother. But still, without bondo or glaze, you cant make it perfectly smooth. mabe the dome area, but the other smaller more detailed areas cannot be sanded as easy, you will need bondo/glaze there.
