    Depends on how accurate you want it I guess. The problem is the Fang is not that accurate to start with.

    I mean basically the chin vent, widows peak and shinier to make the switch.

    Why is it that no one seems to make vader stuff readily accessable? Most of what is out there is ROTS and ANH. Who makes some good ESB stuff?

    Most people don't see episode 4, 5 or 6 when they see a darth, or a boba, they recognise the character and don't see the detail, detail is for the people who care loads, or perhaps too much.

    So if the Darth is ANH, ESB or ROTJ, the only people who notice are people who will build their own.

    In my opinion, spfx is making the best and most accessible esb vader helmet nowadays.

    Spfx routinely sells on ebay under diff names.

    SPFX lids are nice. Just be careful. I have heard of some extremely long waits or no shipment at all.

    For the Fang that's pretty much all you need to do. It's not accurate, but these are the most glaring differences between the ANH and ESB. If you wanna go super accurate, you should consider a better platform.

    Personally I would probably seek out Darth Stone for a Vader lid. He got his hands on a 20th C helmet.

    thank you for the update on this.


    i'll be modifying a fang as i wait to acquire a more accurate helmet.

    i'm making the other hard parts and might eventually try taking a crack at an esb sculpt once i know what measurements are accurate

    Oh... come to think of it... you may want to narrow down the width of the center ridge on the dome as well as slimming down the width of the flange rim. Good luck on your mods.
