Halo 3 Helmet

So, recently I've been working on a, let's say, big project. I'm building a Halo 3 Mjolnir armour and have finished the helmet. It's made off cardstock and will be covered with fiber glass to make it hard and tough.

Ladies and gentelmen. Allow me to present my Halo 3 helmet:





I'll be glad to hear your opinion about my work.

Peace

Well, even though it's from one of the most overrated games of all time, it looks pretty damn nifty.

It's okay though, my brother loves those fucking Halo McFarlane action figures, he has at least a dozen of them.

It took about 15 hours to make this. And this is only the helmet... xD

yay for papercraft. I saw the whole armour somewhere out there in the tubes. Just print it out and cut and glue it all together! And yeah, Halo sucks!

I'm not a Halo fan either, but thats utterly superb work. Looks really close to the game, very distinctive.

Cool. Did you use Horadrim's awesome program to make it?

He didn't make it...

* Jasiek has been using pepakura for years
And so do thousands of people...

Anyway, yeah, the helmet is made really well, no glue blots or anything .

Jasiek is right. I used pepakura. It makes everything sooo easy.
And as for Halo: it's not that bad, but AI of UNSC solders is horrible, especially when you're in a vehicle and a bot is driving.
It took about 10 fucking minutes for him to stop driving in a circle and move forward ...



I'll be buying a can of resin to cover the helmet and after that, I'll expand the hole for my head. I can't put it on right now...
Also, I'll make built-in flashlights like in real halo helmet.

After finishing this armour, I'll try to make an ODST armour.

I remember several years ago we played 4v4 HALO, 4 peeps in one room, 4 in another. Hellafun of course since it was a new game and a social activity too.

Jareth, to strengthen it you could also buy some glass fibre matte - no idea how it's called in English. you cut it to strips and then lay it on your mould and smear resin on it.

Yeah, I know about the fibre glass matte, but there's no need for it, if I just use the resin or fibreglass. I need to smear it inside and outside, so the matte should be glued to the paper model(it's the helmet's base after all).
The matte (if used) should be very thin, and I mean VERY thin to prevent need of using tons of putty to make details.
Also, keep in mind, that I can't just throw anything on the helmet, cause it can't be too heavy.

Ah, I never thought of soaking the paper with resin before, what I would do is to pour something inside, like gypsum or cement or even rolled up newspapers (so the paper won't collapse inside under the weight of the resin). Use glass matte and resin on the helmet, then polish it. Make a "matrix" of it, and then use the matrix for a proper glass matte + resin only helmet. It would be quite light then, cause soaked paper can be pretty heavy.

Keep in mind, that I use "technic paper" (what's the name in english? simply cardstock, huh?). It hardly takes water and is strong. Also, I will make about 2-3 thin layers in- and outside. This will make everything strong.

Your method is also good, but I prefer mine as it hardly consumes resources and is the most common method used among halo armour builders.
Still, thanks for advice I appreciate it.


Edit:

Forgot to say, that I will use foam to make it fit perfectly.
