    Daft Punk Guy Manuel Helmet Build

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    Hi, I am a new member of this community and the propping communityin general. I started making the guy Manuel helmet, and I have made
    three copies already and don't want to start over again. If I have a small
    malfunction with my helmet (say one side is bent slightly inward) should
    i start over? What are my options here?
    Thanks so much

    A nice warm area with good air circulation, always wear a air filter mask and wear gloves. For my Guy Man helmet using pepakura, I made the helmet first then used chop sticks to keep the helmet the shape I wanted it to be (I cut the chop sticks to shape then taped them in). Then I did a few layers of fiberglass resin then started doing matting.
    Also, upload the photos somewhere (I use flickr) and get the URL from the picture and paste it into the box you get by clicking "Insert Image" Good luck with your project!

    As you can see lol, its uneven and ive added pencil braces and started to bend the back part. You guys think I should wait for at least a few months before I start resining (cus its Michigan with **** loads of snow) or start now?


    Thanks guys
