Titanfall 2: 3D Printing/Pepakura questions

Hello,

I was recently able to acquire some of the Titanfall 2 pilot models and got the idea of adding a Holo Pilot helmet to the helmet collection I'm starting since it's been my main since I unlocked the ability. However I am very inexperienced and have almost zero knowledge on how to make props, preferring to focus mainly on painting and kit bashing, so I'm unsure if 3D printing would produce a durable product, or if pepakura is the better option, or if there is a company that would be able to do the hard work for me (not to sound lazy, but I'd rather have a pro work on something like this)

The power of 3D printing is that it's accurate and quick build and replace. There is some durability but nothing in comparison to a fiberglass pep bucket. My Spartan Daisy armour is all 3D printed with an external brush on epoxy layer and a slushed internal urethane resin coating to add a bit more strength and resistance to impact damage so there is a few different ways to improve the base material properties.

Pretty sure the OG titanfall helmet i have is a pep because it's quite durable aside from the add bits I added on for show. The holo helmet would mostly be put out on display, but some added durability would be beneficial
