    any of those rebel helmets happen to be the fleet trooper? a bunch of us are having the "is it grey or white" argument again.
    No they were pilot helmets. I asked about the grey white thing though, as well as the rebel hanger crew suit colors and my response from that was the RFT troopers are eggshell colored white. Steve Sansweet also confirmed white. And hanger crew is not grey, but a "sand" color. Similar to the undershirts of Endor commandos

    Eggshell is basically off-white isn't it...so that puts it somewhere between white and light grey.

    and that's the dilemma. we want to have the most accurate look we can get for our RFT group, but i haven't seen a single non-screen-cap pic of a screen used one.

    we're leaning toward light grey, since that shouldn't be jarring to those that think white, but i should contrast a bit with the stormies.

    and see... stormtrooper! back on topic!

    so... anyone read any good 70 page AA arguments lately?

    I personally did light grey on my RFT helmet as did most of the people here in Sunrider Base.

    That would be a very young George Lucas in the background of the first pic.

    well Sansweet says white. Archive folks told me eggshell. its also a matter of people asking you "why is your helmet grey?" because all toys and video games and comics have all been white.

    i asked about the vs the walls thing, and the response to why they looked grayish or different white than the stormies, was different pulls of plastic and paint vs gloss reflections of the smoke visors.

    so Florida went with a white, that isnt a pure white, but isnt grey at all either. problem with plastics is, even with TK armor some of your pieces are different color in different lighting since they didnt come from the same sheet of plastic when molded :/

    I havent had interest in doing an RFT but next time I go to send a package to LFL I'll ask about pictures of RFT helmets. I'm curious if Steve has one cause he didnt hesitate at all with the "white" answer.

    If you mean who sculpted the Fett helmet and armor it was a girl, not a guy. Unfortunately she passed away about 4 years ago. Beyond that, there was a whole team who were involved in assembling and finishing the Fett suit. most often John Johnston and or/ Ralph McQuarrie are given dual credit for the design and idea. Jose did some work on the piece, but again, the Fett project was a joint effort amongst many skilled artisans.
