Mando helmet assembled

Continuing the discussion from Best Adhesive for PLA?:
I used CA glue to hold the parts together and then used a soldering iron to melt/weld the joints together on the inside AND I only managed to glue myself to the helmet twice :crazy_face:

Now for the hard part… smoothing and finishing

Oh wow, are you going to paint it as well??? Would love to see the finished product :slight_smile:

I do plan on painting it but I haven’t decided if I want to go with a custom design or make it the same as the TV series.

Check out a YouTube channel called “Frankly Built”. Frank has done a bunch of different Mando buckets with a bunch of different finishes (the graphite rub is my personal fave). Might give you some inspiration!
