space marine terminator helm Space Marine Helm Started as Paper Model

We featured the papercraft form for this Space Marine Terminator helmet from MAKE regular Shawn Thorsson in the Flickr pool roundup about a month ago. It was impressive, even then, just as a pepakura model. Seeing how it turned out, covered inside and out with layers of Bondo-based resin, sanded, polished, and skillfully painted, is pretty much jaw-dropping. Best of all, Shawn describes the process in great detail on his personal site, with tons of great work-in-progress shots, in case you are inclined to go and do likewise. [Thanks, Shawn!]
