This helmet is the helmet that appears on Far Away Creations web site.
And here is a nearly identical one in rogue one...



And it got me thinking that perhaps they were made by the same builder. Let me point out a couple more things...

Here you can see where Cal has cut the inner dome to put the chin straps thru.


And here you can see slots in the same location, however the strap has been relocated to a new position, but the original slots are visible in the BTS photos



Also, here in the mohawk area of the helmet, you can see a silver screw used as a stopper for the visor.



And Here in the Visual Dictionary for RO, you can see not only the silver screw, but all the helmets seem to have the same yellow foam inserts FAC uses as well. You can also see the cut out vents on the front mohawk piece seem to match as well, which other helmet makers use a cast resin part.



It would be awesome to think that a member of the fan community had a hand in something so amazing. At any rate, I was glad to get my helmet from Cal and Far Away Creations, and hope that i can get it painted soon! Does anyone else see the similarities?

Look at this thread:
http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=82278

I had seen the same details than you before the movie realeased and buy one of Cals helmets. What I see later was that the Visor and the right and left Oxygene mask parts where differend. This looks more like the Anovos X-Wing helmet. I had a conversation with Cal back last year if he can made this modification on his helmet or if he made the Rogue one version but he said to much work for him. And because his helmet looks so similar
I asked him if he made the helmets for the movie.
He answered that he could or should not say anything there.
Now everyone can draw their conclusions from it but I think he made the helmets but is subject to secrecy.

Hi there,
For a long time I and perhaps others had suspected that the Far Away Creation had made the X-Wing helmet but also others for Rogue One.
Many or some of you know Will Friedrichs from Imperial Outpost Armory and works with Far Away Creation. Willie passed away in Aug. 17. A family member has found some interesting information and pictures in his estate written the following
" We never knew about the projects that you worked on like the Star Wars Rogue One Movie that you had pictures of, where you designed some of X-Wing Pilot helmets."
In the appendix you will find a picture.
I think that has now confirmed Smile
In memory of Willie I share here my found information. Great work Guy's, love it
