    Jul 11, 2012, 1:22 AM - KillStripe size? #1

    I have a Vinyl plotter machine and was wondering the size of the kill strips / dimensions of them? What the individual stripe size is and the length of all the stripes

    thank you in advance

    it size is dependant on the helmet...IMHO a vinyl stripe looks like ****...its supposed to be painted on faded and such...and on ESB it changes colors...all in all not a good idea

    The stencils are worth thier weight in gold, but do consider, it will be dependant on the size of your helmet, as all the makers differ slightly. Have a really good look at the reference pics, and see where the stripes start and finish, and also the height, in relation to all the other damage and sections of the helmet itself. I like to look at the starting point in relation to the dent, and the end point in relation to how much it finishes before the back keyslot area. Also check if there are certain stripes that have specific damage through them to line up. Then, if you slightly enlarge or reduce the stencils to fit (i use microsoft publisher for this), you can generally gauge if they look about right, or if you are way off. Peace :-)

    You could use my files in PNG format (which is set to transparency) to print out the desired killstripes. All the files are here ==> All Boba Fett Helmet Decals
