    Great work. I hate to even say anything after all of your hard work. I noticed that the ear pieces were not lining up on your helmet the same way as in the films. The overall shape is looking good though.

    Mandalorefett - thanks for the comments without people pointing things out to me, the helmet will never be as good as i want it to be. I have addressed the ear problem already (see the attached pics). The problem was i was using a set of old ears i had lying around and these were slightly too short. I have since made a new set as per the pics

    I have also added the dent (still to be tidied up though).

    Thanks for the kind words Andy . I will be selling fibreglass copies of this lid once i am happy with it (hopefully in the next couple of weeks). Its not just a money making exercise though, i just want to produce a lid that is good and people would want to own (at an affordable price)

    spread the good karma

    I think the dent is very slightly oversized, and that is making it look a little too low. I measured off an exisitng bucket i have and the dent is 47mm from the brow and 33mm from the centre line of the dome. Mine has been installed to these dimensions but just looks a litle off I guess i will have to live with it.

    Looking great Jon! The visor cutout looks a little uneven though, but it may just be an eye trick

    The molding didn't go ahead this weekend as my local supplier had run out of silicone

    so the lid just sat there waiting. I did go over it again and ironed out a few niggles with it though. Anyways this is the finished product (I think)

    too true I have been attaching my new BM armour to my vest and then strutting up and down my bedroom in front of the mirror

    seriously though, i have the silicone and will be molding it anyday now. just me i am just as eager to get one as everyone else (how weird does that sound)
