Or this.
For free that file is bluddy fantastic it has the compressed nose bridge, the rounder eyes like the quasi/RO/Kenobi and the incised lines on the tubes like RO/Kenobi however I'm not too sure about the dome it looks like it should be tilted back further and once thats done the bottom edge should be trimed by about an inch or two I think.

But yeah If you want to print a RO vader costume and not have to pay for this is absolutely for you but as I said before you will have to modify the way the dome sits then shorten the bottom edge but If your looking for a starter helmet and then wish to upgrade then this is the way to go. if you want something more accurate and you want something you have to alter or replace for the sake of accuracy then I highly recomend this file for $18.99

No problem. By the way, do you know if there are any problems with the anh one?
Well the bottom edge of the dome is really flat and there appears to be no pointed windows peak so no its not good for an ANH maybe a HIGHLY cleaned up and symmetric ESB or something, you could use the tusks I guess but they won't go down well for pepakura stuff.

If you want to go down the ANH route then I'd get the ROTJ face from darthrobin from thingiverse and make the bottom triangle smaller, In fact a pep ANH helmet would work better than a print because the ANH Vaders quite battered and paper moves and dents easily and its very hard to get a pep helmet flat and symmetrical as you may know
