    Richies Armor sells one for about $100. Needs some cleanup but comes with everything you need

    I heard that Dex over at Dented Helmet has a decent version. I'd recommend checking out the Pilot forums of the Rebel Legion, that's where I heard it.

    The greeblies are often a little bit different from helmet to helmet. It depends on if you are replicating a particular helmet or just making something generic.

    I see only his old sculpt on his web site, and that one is many years old and a bit inaccurate. Years ago I built up one his kits for a friend, and I spent a bit of work accurizing it. Newer sculpts have been made from better source material.

    Yeah I see what you mean. I just got my kit in a few days ago, and for me it'll probably work just as a display helmet as a fun build but yeah definitely not as precise as I would have liked

    Yeah, I have to recommend Dex as well. That is where I got my kit from.

    It is a great kit and built like a tank. Plus it is much more accurate in my opinion.

    ETA: These pics don't have the Radio Free Boliva sticker on the chin yet but I had a printer client of mine make me a few of them and have since added it.

    Does anyone have a Y-Wing Helmet "built and painted" they are trying to sell? Looking to find one, and wondering what/if any options are out there. Please PM me with pics and offer price. Especially interested in Gold Squadron helmet(s) from Ep IV: A New Hope.
