    the drawings of the brow / crown linkage and ears taken from actual used parts or are they scaled drawings from pictures
    Attachment 764005Attachment 764004
    Thanks

    Ben
    Ben. The brow and crown linkages are from the real parts and i think the ears are my drawings. I remember studying the photos and taking measurements to make that template. Same for all the keys. I have a cad program that allows me to trace an image from a photo. So i scaled the photo of the real mask, layered my see thru cad program over the image and traced the part.

    Congratulations buddy! looking great

    Will you be using it just for scaling purpose or do you plan to make your own reveal helmet from it (instead of waiting for Marc to do this)?
    What does Marc charge for this kit?

    Hi Markus
    I will be using this helmet for my reveal, as I’m building I will be scaling all my parts for this accurate helmet, I will also be using the helmets measurements to help me rescale my first mask.
    I want to build 2 reveals, my first helmet is way smaller than this accurate one so I need to chop it up and rebuild my first helmet before I can actually get on with my build, I’m so excited to get on with it, but real world work has to take priority.

    Many a night has been spent sitting and looking at it !!! ( my wife says I need to get a room ) !!!

    Since my own activities with regards to the VR are limited to collecting parts, I should have plenty of time to either wait for Marc to come through with a VR or buy one of this standard ROTJ helmets, when the time has come

    Again...congrats!

    p.s.:
    Would love to see some side by side comparsions of your ROTJ facemask to the screenused VR (cheecks, tubes, nose, mouth vents etc.)

    I will post some comparison pics shortly of my first bought helmet that I will be ripping apart to rebuild, but it is really not a pretty sight ( I have a lot of work to do on it ) I might start a separate rebuild thread on this task alone, as I don’t want to be thought of a re-caster then all the evidence will be documented, but trust me it still won’t be anywhere near as good as Marks


    something in my gut is telling not to bother trying to rebuild the old helmet I bought 5 years (on a whim) (compulsive buy) but it takes a lot for me to say no ( god loves a trier)
