    OH No after reading this thread for the past hour and searching for more info I have called the local army surplus store, picking up a m1 Tuesday.
    After reading the endor helmet file what do you guys think about the spacing and number of pleats, I count 11 that I can see maybe 12 as one might be out of view.

    Could some one please measure the vent/tear on their mitchel helmet cover for me so I can size the stripe of fabric sewn to the side of pleats and the pleats. As elr02k posted above I figure that the vent is the same from the poster image and the real helmets.

    once I have that I should be able to make up a pattern for the cloth once I get my helmet and also use fusion 360 to make up the box and ribbed items strapped to the side.

    Looks like the armor is custom cant find anything like it, what have you guys come up with?

    BTW this will be my 1st helmet!

    Rogue one M1 helmet build

    There was one guy on here that did a custom foamex armor plate. We thought it was from a bike helmet but it does indeed seem to be a custom part.

    oh man i wish i could help you out but i have no sewing skills. if you come out with a template i would be forever grateful!

    as for the bike helmet part. i was figuring of just vacuum casting the M1 helmet to get the shame shape and then cutting the design out of the vacuum dome. it does look like there are some groves in the front of the bike helmet part though..

    once I have an idea on size/measurements, I think I could have a crack at making a pattern. Made a been bag a few years a go, Im no pro but will give it a shot.

    Thats an awesome idea of vac forming the other part. Just down loaded a stl file of a M1 helmet so was going to overlay the extra bike part. Im currently making a sidearm on the 3d printer http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=268102. But if you finish yours first and I get the pattern made maybe we can get the helemt done in time for the release.

    Yeah it'll be a high quality print. All I need are some 3D files and I'll send it your way.

    Cool
    I will try finish early to get to the surplus store today then I can start playing with fabric.

    I'm certain it's a torch on the side of the helmet, remember the clones going into the tunnels in Geonosis, Thats what springs to mind remembering them.

    Having scaled the images as weel as I can, I cant measre perspective thats a bit of guess work. The size of the torch is around 95mm long 15mm diameter. The box or some one said magazine is about 73mmx 20mm thick, with a chamfer on one side, do you guys think its a straight box or does it have any extra curves?

    I can have a go at designing the armor over the helmet in fusion 360 (this will be my second project total learner), boxes and easy shapes is what I can do. It will probabily be over my skill level making so many organic shapes.

    If you add in some perspcetive I think the torch is more like 100mmx20mm. 2 vents at the front 40mm. pic below.

    Oh and if some how I manage to design and print the armor piece, It would be fantastic if you could cast them Halliwax. Im just a youtube expert watcher when it comes to casting.

    im willing to cast! we just need to make sure we all have the same M1 helmet. my biggest fear is going through all this work as a team and then not fitting because we are all using a different helmet. the M1 helmet that is being used as a template for the biker helmet. or bike ring shield, we really need a official name for this piece lol. but if we could get the lower outside measurement of the M1 helmet being used that why we can all hunt down the same size M1's

    More work but if you also mold and cast the helmet then they will all be the same.

    It would still need to be 2 parts with the fabric between. A lighter than the steel outer would be great for Cons and stuff.
