Smoothing edges

Today I spent some time using a rasp to remove some of the edges of the Pep. I found some of the card came away where I had tape on the inside, I'm not worried about this as the plastic has held fine everywhere else.
I've found some sections where it was warped, but I think I can sort these out using a heat gun.


Helmet enforcement done

Today I got the inside of the helmet re-enforced with polyurethane plastic. It's now rigid enough to sand the outside to make it smooth and begin applying car body filler.

Pep almost complete

I've been assembling the new Iron Man helmet over the past week, it's almost done. Just need to fill some of the gaps then I can re-enforce the inside.
The Pep is being sold by Fierfek on TheRPF, informations in the link below.

The size is pretty close to my previous one, if not slightly bigger. But that's good because I'll have more space to work to install servos etc.

I'm on Facebook!

I've decided to link a Facebook page to my blog so it's easier for people to leave feedback.

I haven't worked on the Hylian shield in a while, but I'll get back to it at some point. I've started on working on a new Iron Man helmet from the third movie, released next year.
The new armor was shown at SD Comic-con so there's already a bunch of people starting to make replications. So here's a picture of what I'm aiming for.
