    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.

    Re: re-hash bucket

    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

    Re: re-hash bucket

    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)
