So I have decided to mod my Vader bucket some more.
While this isn't accurate it will still look pretty sick once it's finished.
Unfortunately I don't have pics of certain stages of the mod so some will be from before the current lenses and magnetic mounting system were installed.
First pic is from when I was getting ready to install proper amber lenses.
I then added a raised steel plate to the top of the mask dome which allowed for two large magnets mounted in the helmet to tightly secure the two sections.
I then bought some modeling foam and sculpted a reveal style piece around the unsightly steel plate.
Next using 2mm eva foam, and an exacto blade I cut out strips and detail pieces.
The vents were made from worbla squares covered in aluminum foil tape, with the red detail done with a sharpie. After trimming, gluing, and painting I added 3 thin strips of foil tape for detail.
The top will be detailed with 5mm eva foam, but I may end up buying casts of the dental expanders, and the missing side details.

Update with some newly added details.
Still need the top done with 5mm foam, and need "dental expanders", or resin casts of them.

Have you looked on Shapeways? I've seen some Vader reveal parts on there.


Thanks, I decided to make my own version with toothpicks, and 2mm eva foam, painted with metalic guilded brass paint. Top is all 6mm eva foam. Status is Complete!
