    hmmm...he could be onto something there! I remember someone saying that part of the helmet may be the front of a counter of some sort, it looked alot like that right there. If thats the right size...id want a casting of it! lol Thats the one part of my scratch build im really not thrilled with.

    I'd hate to have to drive over to Apex and sort through their stuff again.
    but, I may have to now.

    Howdy,

    Figured I may as well register here. As I mentioned in the RPF thread, I discovered the part in a bin over @ Apex yesterday. I have a Fett Helmet in my garage that I need to dig out and compare. But, as it seems to turn out with me, I probably have a casting of a recast off of a recast - so I don't know if I can trust the sizing. Is there a reference here that shows the rear of the helmet with a ruler on it? That would end the speculation real quick.

    As for going out to Apex again, good luck finding another. Good luck finding a second of ANYTHING in that place. It was literally laying on top of some parts in a bin inside the place (not in the yard). It will be like finding a needle in a haystack.

    Let's figure out if it is the real thing first......

    After seeing some photos here and talking to some other people, I don't think this is IT. Close, but not IT.

    Some additional measurements for those that want to see how close it is -

    Width of the narrow slot - 20mm
    Width of the wider slot - 32mm
    Height of both slots - 9mm

    Height of six slots - 88.5mm

    Hope this helps. There are no markings on it, and no indication of what it was for. As I stated before, I didn't see any additional pieces where I saw this (either the same, or a variant).
