I'm using hot glue for mine. Works well, but can get a little cumbersome for the small details sometimes.
No problems at all.

1. This time I'm using temporary adjustable telescoping braces on the inside to help shape the helmet while the resin cures.


2. Temporary tabs fixed on the outside to hold shape and spacing while the resin cures.


3. Just about to start the first coat of resin. Comparing the new Pepakura attempt (left) with the first try. (Right.)

All shiny and wet with two coats of resin on the outside and one coat on the inside. Tomorrow should be as stiff as a plank and ready for fibreglassing.

First layer or Rondo (Resin mixed with Bondo) on the inside to stiffen the helmet and fill all the corners.


First layer of body-filler on the outside. (Partially done)


First layer done on the outside. Curing overnight. Sanding tomorrow.

Ta mate. I've had beautiful weather this weekend so I've been building the observatory instead of the helmet. If I get some night -spare time soon I'll continue on the helmet.

Thanks man. Yeah, I hope mine looks BETTER. How's that for over-confidence?

Yep, sure do. I just ignore it and continue regardless. I think it may just be Chrome, AVG or something else not recognising the site or something?

Yeah I'm getting it now on Firefox. They've recently changed back to default forum skins and I think they were updating some stuff, so I'd give it a miss for a bit until it comes back up just in case.

EDIT: Looks like scripting exploit

I've been on there every day (even with the warning) and had no problems whatsoever. My AVG has scanned daily and not probs there either.

Second layer of body-filler sanded and shaped. One coat of dark primer applied. Once dry, a light sand all over will reveal all the low spots for filling in the next layer.



Each layer of body-filler and subsequent sand makes it rounder and more symmetrical.
