I feel like some wizard turning paper into something more solid.
for me it was  most time consumed armor piece.
So....
First measured little ones head and resized files for printing accordingly . Used this one http://mandalorianmercs.org/downloadables/tutorials/library/BF%20Helmet%20Templates%20A4.pdf


Width was ok, but it looked too tall so trimed from bellow to fit.

Comparison of sizes next to mine helmet

Fiberglassing

Applying filler P38

Sanding, again filler, sanding...

Sanding:P

Sprayed inside with plastidip in hopes get rid of smell;/ did not worked....

Primed

Attached ear thingies from foamex

Silver paint layer

First layer of blue paint.
