Hi guys and gals, we'll my latest project has been a bit of a hush hush until I revealed my blog 3 weeks ago.
So I've been working on an Iron Man helmet, from the movie.
I started off by making the helmet from card, using a Pepakura model. If you'd like the Pepakura model then check out the 405th.com forum and search for a Iron Man helmet made by Sharkhead.
Once constructued I then resined the outside and fiberglasses the inside. This makes it insanely strong.
I then dremelled out the face plate.
I then used lots of car body filler to mold the curves and detail. This is what takes up the time, and being a perfectionist means it takes even longer.
Once this is done I used multiple coats of primer to show off imperfections which I rectified.
Then paint and laquer to protect and I'm done.
The face plate comes off and is held on with magnets, but I'd like to install a hinge but haven't found anywhere in the UK to buy them.
If anyone has any questions then please leave a comment and I'll do my best to answer them.
