Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Epoxy Iron Man Helmet Skullcap!

Adam makes use of one of his lifecasts to make a perfectly fitted skullcap for his Iron Man Mark I helmet. It'll require laying down epoxy fiberglass on top of the lifecast, padding it with neoprene, and then sewing a leather liner to give it a welding-jacket aesthetic that fits inside his Mark I's flip-up helmet. And keep an eye out for a special appearance by Adam's dog Maggie!

Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Mandalorian Amban Blaster Replica!

Adam embarks on his first full prop replica project using his shop's new Form 3L 3D printer: a replica of the Amban "tuning fork" blaster as seen in The Mandalorian!

It's an essential prop for Adam's Mandalorian cosplay, and stay tuned for the paint application in the next build!
