Unfortunately I'm not sure what "make" of helmet I have exactly. I got this HDPE kit off of ebay and this is my first bucket. I've watched countless videos, spent probably close to a few hundred dollars on everything from the kit itself to the paint to the tools with my burger king money, soo of course I'm scared to death that I'm doing it wrong. Unfortunately I'm working on this with three weeks left before I go to basic training. I want this helmet to be as close to an original as I can get it, so if I have to spend more money, or if I have to wait until I'm well out of army training to finish this, I will. Being my first helmet, I've been trying to follow the picture references and "how to assemble a stormtrooper helmet" video on Youtube as best I can for the basic stuff. Here's what I have so far:
First I cut the excess plastic off the faceplate with an X-acto knife
Then I cut the excess off the back and cap and fit it together with the rubber brow cut to the appropriate length to see how it fit
Up to this point I think I was doing okay but now I'm concerned about the ears
You can see that there is a major gap. I'm pretty sure I cut too much off. In addition I'm not sure I am fitting the helmet correctly
I don't know much about drillbits so drilling the screw holes in will be with assistance from a friend, so I really want to make sure I get it all fitted correctly so that the drill holes are put in the right places. I have some air-dry clay that I may use to fix the ear but before I do anything I want to get as much advice as I can. If I have to buy a new set of HDPE ears I will. I appreciate any help I can get.
