    I dont care how well mr does......I always feel that helmets made by the true fans are way better. we have so much talent here on the forums and i am proud to be on the dented helmet.

    I think MR did a fantastic job on their helmet. I would be proud to wear one if someone were to cast it.

    Really, the only thing I didn't like about the few pics I've seen of the MR is the uneven mandible width. I would guess, however, that this could be corrected with a brace and replacement visor.

    As promised...

    As you can see below, FP is the man, and his new FPH is truely amazing!!:thumbup...

    Please keep in mind that the FPH shown is not finished, does not have any weathering, and is used only for the over all comparison...so the colors will look a tad different...plus I've made some changes to the "recommended" colors, based on viewing the real hero helmet in person.

    **And also keep in mind that the FPH was modeled after the HERO ESB helmet...not the one MR used (PP3). ...so there are some noticeable differences in shape.

    I think for a "fanmade" helmet, this is as good as it will ever get.

    AGAIN GREAT WORK FETTPRIDE!

    nice pics!!

    throw up the MSH2 comparison!!!

    I must say that our man FETTPRIDE makes one INCREDIBLE bucket!!!

    and I must say that MR did a AWESOME job also.

    As Spidey said the MR is a PP3 and the FPH is more in line with the HERO. For those of you that saw the HERO helmet at C4 you know that that helmet is very different that the PP3!!

    these are great pics and I cant wait to display my finished FPH and the MR helmet at my crib very soon!!

    I want both. I have the MR on the way (supposedly). I need a ROTJ to troop in. I need to contact FP eventually. Thanks for the pics.

    Its the PP3 MR scanned fellas.8)

    I am very impressed with the paint work on the MR! The colors look spot on next to the real colors from Lee on the FPH. After all MR and Lee worked together on this helmet from MR so they better have gotten it right!

    FP you make an awesome bucket. Its amazing how good it looks when its a scratch made helmet next to a scan. And as others have pointed out, it has all the little warps and things that make it look truly an ESB helmet.

    Master Replicas did a fantastic job on that helmet!! I love the comparison pics, it really shows how accurate the helmets are. The MR rangefinder seems to have a little too much weathering on it though.

    Those are AMAZING pictures guys ! Thank you for being so kind too I'm honored to be the first to be compared to the closest to the real helmet as anyone will ever get !!

    There are definitely some very obvious differences. Size specifically. I think the pics really excentuate that. I've been told that it isn't that obvious in person between the two. I can't say for sure, as I've never even held an MR. Yet

    And yes, the FPH was designed more with the ESB "Hero" in mind. But no matter what helmet your going for, the domes are always the same. I remember that was the hardest aspect that I grappled with. I'm glad to see that I was at least in the ball park

    Again, thanks guys for taking the time to do this. Great pics ! I think they're the best you've ever taken ! I know it's a pain in the but to do too ! These pics would be a great "add" to the next official ref cd ! Especially the "stand alone" pics of the MR on your other thread !

    I'm extremely impressed with the MR paintjob !!!! It has to be the best mass produced painjob for something this complex that I've ever seen. I'm not so sure that anyone else but MR could have pulled this off ! I mean, look at the old DP DLX !!

    In all seriousness, a sincere thank you for all of the great comments on the FPH !

    Sorry, edited..PP3

    and cough cough, not all the colors you see on this FPH are Lees recommended colors...just FYI... .....some of my own mixes and changes I've made that are based on viewing the real hero helmet in person....

    oh and keep in mind...that the FPH AND the MR have no real weathering or misting on them, (other than the random rust Splatter on the MR).. so that will also change the FPH color a tad, once I get there of coarse.

    Great comparison. Both are beautiful helmets.
    For a fanmade, FP did an amazing job.
    Thanks for the side by sides.

    WOW!!!! Awesome pics!!! The FPH virtually looks like the same helmet and the metal ears, well....just doesn't get any better:thumbup.

    Now I'm waiting for the first re-paint/touch-up paintjob of an MR....If it happened with the MR Falcon which costs a bunch more, I forsee it in the Fett future8).
