    Im saying the brow is wavy on the ESB helmet and youre not making an ESB helmet so why not fix it? Its an anomaly that occurred on one helmet....

    I gotcha, I love the way the brow looks in all it's wonkieness. That to me screams the ultimate Mandalorian modern style helmet, and I wish the ROTJ bucket had the same wave.

    As for as anchoring the stalk to the servo goes.
    After you cut it off the extension to the length you need (a perfectly square cut would be critical) you might be able to just get a extra long screw and screw into the servo and sandwich it all together.
    As long as the stalk wouldn't slip on the extension, I would think it would work fine.
    Do you have a wireless transmitter and receiver yet?

    Looks good. I'm really dreading filling in the dent on mine.

    That sounds like a plan, I may look into that. I'm testing my gear with my present RC car radio gear, if all goes well, I'll get another radio set up later and take it apart. I just want to make sure this works and set it up.

    Thanks! This is probably in the wrong section, but I felt it would help a lot of new helmet builders building this awesome helmet!

    Ears are done.

    Green started on dome and rear insert. I used the olden day paint of Moss green that used to be used BITD and was the must have for Boba Fett paint. I still have to pull off the liquid mask of the rear insert.

    Battle scar added. I got most of the main colors done, I still got to do the red front and back. Main design details are done and I can then start to weather it up.

    I'll do final assembly when I get more parts in.
    I got some parts coming from Shapeways to replace the RF topper, so I hopefully can contain the lights to the top. I will also add dental files in back.

    Servo shaft extension test fitting.

    Drilled stalk and helmet with a 3/8" bit to fit shaft. drilled 17/64" hole for grub screw, taped hole with #6 tap. Worked like a charm.

    Test servo fit.

    Nothing here is permanently done and only test fit to see how it works, but it once I get to know how the servo is set and how much to cut off the servo shaft it will be done.
