    Help.

    I want to get some of the brow trim material, as used on the stormtrooper helmets, but I can't find the link. I guess it dropped off. I also don't want to pay what those guys on ebay are asking. I remember the source was in England, and it was a boat trim supplier. I can't remember the item number.

    I should have book marked them. Oh, well. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Jim

    I just got a couple of meters of accurate brow trim from Seals Direct. What should I use to glue it to the brow of my Stealth Trooper Helmet?

    The trim on mine isn't glued - it's just pushed into place and it works fine.

    However, on the first trooper helmet I made, I used a few drops of superglue on the brow and that seemed to work too.

    Regards

    SWR150 is S-shaped. Is that accurate?
    I need to get some for my X-wing helmet trim. It should be the same trim as the Stormtrooper.

    Hey Chris,
    x-wing helmet trim is different stuff than the troopers.
    Tie pilots use the brow trim as their neck trim.

    That won't work on an FX bucket, as the faceplate laps over the helmet dome. I would have to install the U shaped trim upside down, which is wrong.
