    Aug 26, 2008, 10:39 AM - QUESTION: Are Don Post Range Finders the proper size? #1

    Sorry for all the questions guys, I should be a Boba expert by the time I'm done.
    Can anyone tell me if the Don Posts helmet's range finders and stalks are the accurate size? They seem kind of bulky to me.




    Thanks everyone.

    From what I can tell, they RF is a little small. If you put a real SX-70 lens next to the DP on, it is small. Also, based on WoF drawings, they are overall to small. The RF will look large on the helmet you posted above, because the helmet is to small.

    Ah-Ha! Thanks Asok, I wonder if anyone can post a comparison pic of a Don Post next to a MR, or another accurate RF.

    Compared to a full sized helmet, like the MR, Fang, FP its going to be a tad small. But you could take a sheet of sintra, and cut each sides shape out and glue it on top of itand it would be enough (2mm)

    The rangefinder is 2-5 mm shorter and earpieces are about 3-5 mm shorter, 1-2 mm narrower on the DP, than on the MR,Fang,FP,WOF

    Hope that helps

    I would guess that it is about 1 in to short.

    In my option, the RF and stalk are to scale to the helmet.
