It was definitely some kind of God's Hand involved which allowed me to create these files.

Did you figure out how to use the stencils? I can’t find it in the threads either.

Hi RafalFett ,

Firstly, thank you for all your work on this. It's wonderfully detailed, and very inspiring!

I have a helmet which I built to your v2 plans. I'm thinking of repainting it using the ultra paint templates.

I've run into a problem getting one of the templates to fit. This also affects the older paint templates.

The problem is with the back left panel. Your v2 helmet build templates give a top length measurement of 146mm, and a total height at the keyslots of 110.5mm, with the keyslot cutout being 101mm tall: and a measurement of 117.5 tall at the ear. Both the actual templates and the accompanying diagrams show these measurements.

I have faithfully built to these measurements... but the paint template for this area doesn't fit.

If I scale it so that the top length of the paint template is 146mm, the template is too tall. If I make it fit the keyslots or the ear area, it doesn't stretch from one side to the other - falling short at about 140mm.

It's just this one template which doesn't fit - the rest all match to within a millimeter or two, which is tolerable for painting.

Which one is more accurate please? I'm guessing it's the (newer) paint templates but it never hurts to check!

-- David.

As KaanE said, the ultimate and ultra stencil are made to fit the lineage helmets. For my RWH v2 templates use these stencils for your build ==> Boba Fett ESB Helmet Stencils.
 
I've been painting a PP2 for the past couple of weeks using RafalFett templates and I continue to be in awe at the detail and accuracy all of the templates have. Even with the high resolution photos of the prepro helmet, I can't wrap my head around how he does it. These ultimate stencils are incredible and I'll be upgrading my ESB helmet soon as I have a lineage minutefett just waiting to be painted. Just a random post about the amazing contribution to the community that these stencils are. Someday, I'd love a documentary series on how you go through the process of creating them. If there's a thread, I will read it with the same interest I read the crazy thread here or on BFB about the original paints! :)
