    May 18, 2011, 10:32 AM - Mystery Helmet? #1

    Bought this Fett helmet on Ebay last Oct. and I'm guessing it's a Mystery helmet? It flares out pretty wide. Any ideas? Thanks!

    It's just a hair too small for my head, vertically. My eye-line is just a tiny bit too low. Wondering if I can sand the inside top of the helmet just a bit. 3/8" more space would perfect for my eyeline.

    Would you take a pic at 6 feet from the helmet? You can use zoom and all but at 6 feet away. Lens distortion makes it hard to tell, some things like the ear cap looks to, but it looks more like a MH recast, than a real MH.

    Yes, it looks to be a MH, I have one on my hands right now and looks the same. Is it fiberglass made? If yes, then it's a recast. I say because in the first pic it looks like fiberglass resin instead of a polyurethane resinn.

    definently a mystery/recast how ever they did some mods to it to cast it ,
    looks like a reasonable helmet, specially for your first
