    I am a prop/costume hobbyist and have been at this hobby since 2001. I just recently within the last year got into Pepakura and papermodeling.

    I think my first attempted kit was an imperial guardsman helmet which i gave up on, but after that I helped build a boushh and clone trooper helmet as well.

    Ive made a few other models in my time since working with paper.

    I have mainly made my costumes and props along sci-fi lines, Boba Fett, Darth Vader, etc...

    I am experienced in using Fiberglass, resin, bondo, all the good stuff!

    I am really interested in the bondo/resin method of coating paper helmets and such for completion.

    If you are still hanging around could you speak to the issue? is a 50/50 bondo resin ratio better than just resin or for prop helmets will just plain resin harden and be sturdy enough for use?

    also any links to sites with instruction would be nice.

    thanks for looking
