Hi from another new guy!


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

 

first let me say thanks for being such a great resource and you all seem like a great community.  I’m in the process of building my first helmet…I know,  just a helmet,  but this has been a really cool really great build so far.  A friend 3D printed all the parts for me (28 pieces).

 

So far I have glued,  fitted,  sanded, glued, sanded,  primed, filled, sanded,  filled, sanded,  filled, sanded,  primed and today I got the first real paint on. 
 

This has been a lot of work,  but hey,  keeps me out of trouble and I think I’m going to start a helmet collection. 
 

Not sure if I’ll ever do full armor,  but the helmets are a blast! 
 

Anyway,  great to meet you all,  and thanks for all the help you have already been!

That is a lot of effort that will be well rewarded when complete.  Looks like this isn't your first rodeo.

Thanks so much!  This is my first time ever doing anything like this or with 3-D printed stuff….I do a lot of woodworking and just watched a lot of videos and read posts here. I just don’t want to screw it up!

Hello Daniel and welcome to the FISD.

 

Great job done on this helmet so far. :duim:

 

If you really think about a collection, you could try a helmet kit from ABS next time (saves you from printing and all that filling and sanding in the future ;))

 

Did I spot a red and black Mando helmet in that first picture?

Yeah….it has been a process!! 
 

the black and red Mando helmet was something a grind had printed and didn’t go right so he gave it to me to practice on.
