    Hello all



    I am currently working on my mando helmet, I wanted to build a boba helmet but have a few more tweaks to make to it before I am satisfied. I used Wizardofflight's templates and 14 gauge steel ( being a welder by trade it was what I was comfortable using) here are some pics let me know what you think thanksClick image for larger version.

    Yeah the rangefinder gave me some trouble I was trying to shape it without the right tools but I think i have figured out what the problem was, I also need to tighten it up its pretty loose so sometimes it falls down with moveing my head. Thanks for the input
