there is no ring inside the dome to mate with the face how low does the dome ring sit on the face ring?
Dome position is different for the 3 movies... basically we start really low w/ ANH and the dome just ends up sitting progressively higher and straighter w/ each following movie. There really is no one measurement/formula to position the dome correctly. The best way to do it is to get as much reference from the movie you are going for - and then just sit down w/ the photographs and a bunch of foam and just test-fit the dome until it looks just like your reference. It's kind of trial and error... but good fun, once you hit the right spot.
