"arrows" on the front of the helmet

I am 75% ready to start building my helmet (I am going to make a cardboard mockup first, sans dome, to see how everything goes together first, then move to the Sintra and batting helmet), and I am curious...how do you put the "arrows" on the front of the helmet (above the visor), and what size are they, etc? Thanks! :)

I don't know how much instruction you're after, but the arrows are to be recessed into the helmet, if that's what you mean. They don't "sit" on the surface.

Hope that helped :)

I've seen them be cut in with a drill and file, also have seen a big rectangle cut out of the helmet filled with bondo and stamping them in while the bondo is setting.

Measure twice, cut once...(y)

cut out arrows, then place sintra behind it... thats how i would do it.

simple and quick.

I had the front section of my scratchbuilt helmet covering in spackling paste, so I just took a knife and carved the arrows out of it.

Hey Ronin, you make any casts of that yet?
Not yet but very very soon. I am just a bit busy at the moment. I am deperately trying to get my Fett ready for Celebration Europe (and seem to be fighting a losing battle :lol: ) and i have a ton of courses to attend during May which seem to be taking up all my 'fett' time.

But as soon as i pop these kiddies out of the molds i will post here immediately. Not sure if anyone will be interested in them but its another bucket for people to consider.
