Forgot to include in my last post. Anyone have ideas on where to find a legit or close to it falcon headset (ANH). Think that would be a great piece to finish off my Han Costume.
Maybe someone is fabricating them or can show me how to frankenstien one??
Thanks again....boy this is gonna be fun...

The model is an Racal -- Amplivox RA-150 Minilite. More often than not, in eBay auctions, only part of the model name is used. Be sure to look for the "minilite" model, not one of the many different other Racal headsets that are available.

Richies Armor has made replicas of the headset.

The same headset was also worn by Rebel Pilots in ANH, and by the flight controllers in the control room on Yavin IV.

Also probably good to add that these can be a pain to come by because they're also used for Aliens Colonial Marines costumes as well.

Yep, these turn up on eBay regularly and they were used quite a bit on various science fiction films. I picked up a set a few months back.
