Magneto!
I'm not a geek.

But I, of course, want a Magneto helmet of my own.

Some WIPs:

And modelled by yours truly:

All I need to finish is the horns on the front, but they'll be tricky so I can do that tomorrow, heh.

Next stage will be to make another one out of thicker card and more durable glue, then coat it in resin and fiberglass. I am such a child <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

Re: Magneto!
WIPs of mark three, which should be the final one.

The crown:

The back panels:

Back panels and crown attached together:

The cheeks go on . . .

Nearly done:

And here's everything but the front horns:

[Image: 22032009461.jpg]

And modelled by yours truly:

[Image: 22032009464-1-1.jpg]

Next stage is to make and attach the little horny bit at the front (I haven't done that so far with any of the models, because it will be very tricky).

Then I need to resin coat the outside, fiberglass reinforce the inside, sand and smooth the outside, paint, and finally add padding to the inside. Lucky for me I'm unemployed right now <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

I wondered how you were going to construct it! It looks really good so far.

You do make a point to test the seal when you put them on right? *shudders from flashback to safety videos*

Re: Magneto!
Updates! The first coat of resin has gone on. It's not as tough as I'd like so I'm going to add another coat when I get the chance. There was a bit of a brush malfunction too meaning it's not even, but the second coat will help with that (and sanding later on will make everything good anyway).

Don't forget that safety gear! Family members were gardening nearby so I kept yelling "Can you smell anything? Can you? No? Good! Wait, come here . . . closer . . . can you smell it now? Yes? My mask is working, now go before you get cancer!"

Resin, early stages - the string is to keep the cheeks the right distance apart:

And

Late stages of resin:

[Image: 11042009501.jpg]

So that first coat of resin is dry, and my little Magnetos wanted to say a proper hello to their new friend:

[Image: 14042009507.jpg]

Also, bored and not wanting to seep, at 1am I thought "Why not make an Iron Man helmet, too?" So I started with the faceplate. As you can see from this, the paper "skeleton" is verrry squint. I think I can even it out some with resin though. It's a LOT more complicated than the Magneto one, so I'm not going to make one out of stiffer card yet - I'll resin this rough plate (if the resin doesn't dissolve it . . .) and see what happens, before making a better Mark 2.

[Image: 14042009502.jpg]

And here's Magneto and Iron Man together, cunningly positioned so neither looks too much of a mess <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->
