    Great work! What brand of glue did you use on the chicago screws and the magnets?
    I used GOOP for the magnets on the outside earcap... on the part connected to the helmet I used JB KWIK. I placed a layer of tape inside the helmet to give a little support because the material is thin. Once the JB KWIK cures its solid and holds the magnets well.

    Hey Pete!

    This helmet is no longer mine to complete ... I sold it to a member here who will continue the process. I love Fett but decided to let it go and try my hand at something else. I have to say... its easier than I thought it would be... But I'll still be here on TDH and thebhg! Maybe one day in the future (years from now) I'll build up another Fett.

    This helmet was ready to paint and I hope the new owner wil lbegin his paintup soon!

    Really nice work on the prep and fitting the borden and magnets, the extra effort will really show in the finished helmet, but isn't your RF ROTJ instead of ESB?

    It doesn't matter anymore, because he already sold the helmet, but in post #10 he mention:

    The almost complete RF/ Antenna. Only thing missing now is the eyepiece. It needs to be painted first and then glued on.

    I added the lenspiece before I sent it to the new owner. Can't wait to see the paintup... maybe he'll continue it here... I can change the title.

    I used my dremel with a metal cutting wheel for most of the visor. I used a fine grinding tip for the corners. When I get needed to get into the corners I used small files.
