    @rundown the resistance/weight lifting bands look like a much more source-able option. Do you have any idea what size that black one is?
    the OD with out the dome armor is 28.5 inch or 72cm

    I believe the resistance band in the previous post is 208 cm which is too large for a helmet. There are other smaller, thinner exercise/yoga bands which are 5 cm wide by 50 cm around. Those could be split down into two bands each 1" wide and 20" unstretched. They are very common on ebay.

    I do not know if the film used the same technique as soldiers in the field, but the bands where also made from the inner tubes from "deuce-and-a-half trucks (11R20).I know I have a tube some where if there is interest in that approach.

    My eyes are totally square squinting at all the reference pics and working on the dome armor. these are screen grabs from Fusion 360. I set the thickness of the Dome shield to 8mm at the back and 12 at the front so you get a 4mm ridge which looks about right when you scale from the box on the side of the poster helmet. I have all the stages copied so I can go back and modify most of the details. I have not figured out how to make the groove in the dome along the fabric seem line yet. Oh the black lines you see are frame lines and wont show up on a print. I did figure out how to import a pic (Was pretty pleased with that!). Im pretty sure there is a bolt or something beside the box connecting the front armor to the back, you can see a small detail near the band.





    A little unsure about the back lower curve will see what pops up during the week I'm away. Fingers crossed we get some great images of the helmet.



    Exciting, Im getting a real buzz making this up. Any design thoughts are totally needed to refine the model.

    I really think that the fabric cover is a cloth, rather than a suede leather. It's definitely hard to tell, but the stippling effect just below the dome shield here looks to me like a twill or something...
    I found a cotton cloth that looks similar with the stiplle pattern.

    Im sure parts of fabric are wet in the poster pic making the fabric seem darker. I wouldnt choose anything too much darker than the current choice. . Maybe a bit lighter? I think the stiplle is part of the weathering, have you watched the tested video on weathered clothing/armor. Good choice on the texture I think.

    Look at set pix not screen shots or posters where the color and lighting have been altered.

    Thats the problem with getting info off of posters and pre-release images is the lighting.

    Drone shots of the beach set shows the cover to be tan, almost the same color as the "Endor" helmets.

    The 2nd from the left and the 4th from the right (with that funny black diagonal on the thigh armour), and the 3rd one in from both the left and right. They seem to have identical poses.

    After a bit of work (the weathering video above) I think this will be pretty good. just need to keep at it. I think I have the side and middle strip pattern just need to cut and sew it together to check its going to fit well.

    Its good but not good enough, the width is perfect but the side pannels are about 5mm too big, making the pannels smaller will just tidy it up and make it look much tighter. After that I will sew the baffles and attach them over the top. next weekend I should have a pattern for you alex, I might make a few for me and my brother and a couple rebel legion guys in New Zealand. If any one else wants the pattern once done feel free to message me

    yep, if you do the covers over there that would be awesome, I figure if you made them up its going to be more cost effective for every one there,and spreading the load would be awesome. My next ambition is making the rebel hoth hat and a hoth/rogue one blaster A280. I have a Romans graflex coming too which I think will sit on my bed side table until I turn it into a saber. . . .then it will still sit there lol.

    Here is the fabric i picked up earlier in comparison to the pic that thain put up earlier.



    I got it slightly lighter than neccesary so yall can wet wash the fabric with black paint and dull it down and weather it to a good finish.
