A modded 95 can look pretty dang good and for someone with a smaller build a bigger bucket may look out of proportion. I don't think you'd have a problem getting into the 501st with a modded DP bucket. In the pic below I'm wearing my modded '95. It's not anywhere as nice as some DP's I've seen around here. http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/photoplog/file.php?n=28&w=o
There is the Don Post Deluxe recast, the Don Post '95 that is smaller and the one you showed on "gaybay", and to quote TK409 "has become extremely inaccurate and small". I was talking about the one you showed on your first post the hole time anyways. Not trying to argue just giving you info you ask for.8)
Very true. I'm a thin guy and I purposely use the smaller helmets because they are more in proportion with my costume and my build. I have a 95 painted ESB and a 96 painted ROTJ. I've measured mine next to a friend's BM helmet, and front to back they are exactly the same size. Mine is about 1/2" shorter on top and about 1" thinner from side to side, which is fine because on my thinner shoulder width, it looks better.
I do see what your saying. Any bigger and you would look like a bobble head fett I am 6 foot and have very wide shoulder with so I would like like I fell into a amazon camp full of head shrinkers vice versa
