    Mystery Helmet Ear cap Correction

    I've been catching up some threads about the MH, and see there's some disappointment with the ear cap. I want this helmet to be the best it can be so I"d like to get a group consensus on what the real dimensions should actually be.

    So I'd like y'all to copy this pic I snagged from Batninja's thread, take it into your favorite drawing program, and draw in the measurements you think it should be, post it back here, then we'll take a vote on what is the most accurate, and I'll make a new pattern for it.



    When I get the new one done and molded, I'll send out a free copy to whoever sends me a self-addressed, stamped, PADDED envelope.

    That work for you guys?

    That one isn't bad at all but on the older helmet it's much worse

    Here's a quick one I worked out. Thinner in profile, with the lower 'triangle' tucking under the base.

    I think AFFO$ has nailed it, that would make a great helmet even greater

    Ok, so everyone's ok with the current earpiece except for it needing to be thinner, and the wedge on the bottom?

    Can someone post a pic or two of the wedge lapping under the main piece? I never noticed that before.

    Thanks!

    I altered the pic that I posted at the top of the thread a little. Originally I think I had the 'wedge' at the bottom of the earcap a little too thin, plus as is visible in the RotJ helmet pic, you can see that it doesn't come to a point where it tucks under the base. It's squared off.
