As I'm sitting at home with 3 Fett lids on hand, I thought it might be neat to try to start up a sort of standardized measuring system for helmets.
People are always asking "Is X going to fit me?", "what's the biggest?", "what's the smallest?", etc...
Between all of us here, we've gotta have every helmet under the sun.
So what about coming up with a standard set of dimensions to take off of each helmet. Not enough to copy stuff, but to get a basic sense.
My thought is that we measure the distance from the bottom of one earcap to the bottom of the other, the distance from the back of the helmet to the front, the height of the dome when it's sitting flat on the floor, and the circumference of the outside of the dome, right above the visor line.
Then we put them all together, perhaps even with pictures of each helmet, and have a really neat, easy to read way for folks to find the right thing.
I can measure my HS, MS3 and BF helmets tonight (the raffle where I'm giving away the BF helmet is Saturday!), At some point I could get Webchief's MSH2.
Worth the effort?
