    Hi!

    Im trying to build the Rebel Fleet trooper helmet. Decided to start easy, since Im new at this.

    Instead of Bondo...which I cant use..Im using the smooth-cast liquid plastics.

    Anyone else ever use the stuff?

    Thanks!

    Probably a dumb question...

    smooth cast >roto<??

    So far, the fun part is getting the stuff painted on evenly...

    Good grief. That stuff has an even shorter pot life. How in the world do you get your item covered fast enough? the 7 minute time limit on the 300 stuff is pushing it for me. lol

    Also, after you use the bondo..do you re-coat it with the plastic?

    i close all the small holes and add this stuff inside the helmet not outside.
    thats why i use smooth cast roto
    here you can see that i added smooth cast inside
    you can see the paper outside

    This thread seems to have been really hoping back in 2010, but I don't see any links to meshes, models, textures, pdo's...pdf's....:confused:

    I'm trying to decide between one of these or a Fallout 3 Brotherhood of Steel for my first helmet attempt...

    Am I missing something here? Are there links I'm not seeing?

    Can't wait to see what you come up with NOTA. I have all of the fallout armor models myself and can't decide between the Tesla Suit, the NCR, the Wasteland Warrior's armor, or the BHOS....:confused:

    What are you looking for? Any Star Wars meshes? Or something in particular?

    The old site that used to have them disappeared, but a new one has popped up, from someone working on new stuff.

    I will look it up, and post it here, if you are interested still.
