    find Wizard of Flight's helmet template on here and go from there. They are basically the same, without the dent.

    The dome for Jangos helmet is pretty much the same as Bobas, save for the obvious ommission of the dent. I've also noted that Jangos dome seems to sit just a hair lower than Bobas, but I could be wrong.

    To save yourself some time and extra work ,and to get a symetrical dome, use a bicycle or batting helmet that's a good fit for your head.

    Thanks to Banzai88 for the pics in his Fett from 1986 thread.

    Based on the comparison pics you posted, it almost looks as if they cut off the dome right above the brow, trimmed off about 1/4"-1/2", and then reattached it.

    I don't know for sure, but according to Brak's Buddy, Jango's helmet was an entirely new sculpt.

    But the similarities between the two helmets is very close. It's just that Jangos dome, although the same basic shape ( front to back it's the same, but from side to side Jangos is more rounded ), is lower/shorter than Bobas.

    I actually have a screen-cast Jango in my possession, as well as the MR helmet, and while they do look very similar in many areas, the MR helmet is slightly bigger.

    Re: JANGO DOME?

    yeah the helmet comparison photos are with my screen cast Jango and Banzai88's casting of an original Boba. In person they are similar but the Boba is definitely bigger...especially taller.

    Re: JANGO DOME?

    I've had a dp fiberglass deluxe in my hands before, and I could swear the screen-cast Jango was a cleaned up/modified recast. There were about 2 or 3 similarities that made me think that way. One being the off-center key holes from the ears, a second being the warp in the back, and a third being the differing lengths of the mandibles.
